Mumtalakat to focus on aluminium sector
Manama, June 24, 2013
Bahrain Mumtalakat Holding, the investment arm for the kingdom's non-oil and gas strategic assets, will focus on the aluminium industry at a Lunch and Learn series at the Capital Club on Sunday.
The event will consist of two sessions - the first is a closed session for industry stakeholders, who represent Mumtalakat on the board of its portfolio companies, where Mumtalakat will present its new directors' handbook, according to a report in the Gulf Daily News, our sister publication.
The handbook outlines the essential concepts for Mumtalakat's directors in order to achieve the highest standards of corporate governance.
The second is an open session, which aims to communicate Mumtalakat's outlook and strategy for various industries, with an overview on the food and manufacturing sectors, as well as a broader on aluminium.
"We are excited to host the Lunch and Learn series," said Mumtalakat chief executive Mahmood Al Kooheji.
"This series will prove vital for the business community to learn more about Mumtalakat's strategy and our views on various industry sectors. It will also serve as a unique platform to gauge interest from potential partners and investors about future collaboration," he said.
The series will continue throughout 2013, and will cover various sectors including financial services, real estate, tourism, technology, media and telecommunications.
"We are delighted to align ourselves with the important endeavours that our club members, in this case Mumtalakat, are initiating for the greater good of Bahrain and the region's economic development," said Capital Club general manager Shahnaz Pakravan. – TradeArabia News Service
