Tamkeen supports 30 firms at Gitex
Manama, October 21, 2013
Bahrain’s labour fund Tamkeen has supported 30 companies that benefited from the ‘Tarweej’ scheme to exhibit at Gitex 2013, running till October 24 in Dubai.
The support amount contributed by Tamkeen to these companies totaled BD120,000 ($310,158), said a statement.
The scheme is offered by Tamkeen under its Enterprise Development Support Programme, which offers subsidised business support services to businesses in Bahrain.
Through the scheme, the fund enables businesses to participate in local, regional, and international trade fairs and exhibitions by covering 80 per cent of the total participation cost, including registration fees, space rentals, and stand installation, as well as tickets, accommodation, and shipping costs for exhibitions held abroad.
"Gitex is a significant regional event that brings together top companies from the ICT sector from all around the world," said Tamkeen’s acting VP for Private Sector Support Mohammed Bucheery.
"Enabling businesses in Bahrain to take part in such events allows them to build business relationships and discover all the latest trends within the sector, which ultimately boosts their potential for growth and development.”
In addition to ‘Tarweej,’ Tamkeen also offers ‘Istishara’ to assist in strategic planning, ‘Techania’ to support the purchase of tools and equipment, ‘Jawda’ to implement world-class quality standards, ‘Tasweeq’ to support marketing functions, and the Legal Services Support Scheme to provide essential legal support for businesses. - TradeArabia News Service
