BMI View: Bahrain's water sector is continuing its gradual program of reform and is increasingly open to foreign direct investment. However, we would emphasise that this process is tentative. The country's water infrastructure remains in need of extensive expansion and modernisation, and this is likely to remain a priority for the Bahrain authorities. With water extraction expected to increase throughout our five-year forecast period to 2018 and mains water consumption also expected to increase, Bahrain will need to respond to ensure it can keep up with rising demand.

In the wake of 2013's election of reformist-inclined Crown Prince Salman Bin Hamad al-Khalifa, to the post of deputy prime minister could serve to drive the privatisation of the water sector, which has been on the agenda in Bahrain for several years. This privatisation takes place in the context of an improvement of the overall investment climate in Bahrain, with domestic economic conditions gradually showing signs of improvement after little growth in the last two years. The country's Electricity and Water ministry is actively seeking bilateral partnerships with counties including France and the UAE as part of the wider strategy to improve the quantity and quality of its water supplies over the longer term. If these meetings develop into full-blown partnerships we anticipate a possible upswing in joint ventures in Bahrain's water sector (particularly water infrastructure) between French, Bahrain and UAE companies.
