Driving growth

Thursday, October 14, 2004

The Oxford Business Group that I mentioned before has released another very interesting analysis about Bahrain. This time they try to gather some information about our economy by studying automobile sales here... interesting approach. Here is an excerpt:

The automobile market reflects Bahrain's development in other ways too. The kingdom's increasingly sophisticated consumer base is likely to benefit most from the new approaches the dealers are taking in response to these economic and social changes. The intense competition has, however, eaten away at the margins - meaning that the family companies that distribute the brands now have to find other opportunities for profit beyond automobiles. Yet for all that, sales growth remains high and, with no let up in liquidity on the horizon, looks set to speed on still further.

Read the full report here.

Hi, I work for OBG in Bahrain and I'm very glad you like the pieces I write about Bahrain. I like your blog too.

Yes, the OBG pieces on Bahrain are great, so thanks and please keep them coming.

I liked your study of car sales in Bahrain... but I'd be really interested to read about the real estate and housing market on the island in one of your future issues.

Also, may I ask, how long has OBG been operating in Bahrain? Feel free to email me on chanad@gmail.com if you don't want to reply in public. Cheers!
