Oxford Business Group in Strategic Partnerships With industry Specialists
The world’s leading guide to Bahrain’s fast evolving economic, political and social landscape ‘Emerging Bahrain 2006’ has collaborated with top local industry specialists to produce the most authoritative analysis available on the Kingdom.
The association between UK-based publisher Oxford Business Group (OBG) and leading key local Bahraini partners: Securities Investment Company (SICO), Qays H. Zu’bi, Attorneys & Legal Consultants and PriceWaterHouseCoopers (PWC) accountants ensures that ‘Emerging Bahrain 2006’ includes the most thorough and comprehensive research to date.
Comments Qays H. Zu’bi, Managing Partner, Qays H Zu’bi “In this increasingly globalised economy it is vital that investors are fully au fait with the laws in the jurisdiction they are looking to invest in. ‘Emerging Bahrain 2006’ not only arms such investors with the Kingdom’s legal framework but a detailed overview of the economy as a whole”.
Working with industry specialists assists OBG’s team of seasoned professionals to provide greater insight in to key market sectors that are significant to economic growth says, Anthony Mallis, CEO of SICO comments “2005 saw exceptional growth on the stock markets throughout the region. Then came the correction in early 2006. OBG’s ‘Emerging Bahrain 2006’ provides unparalleled analysis of the factors at play within the Bahraini market”.
The partnerships underscore OBG’s commitment to cooperating with locally-based institutions in compiling the Emerging Markets series of top-level country economic and political reports. Oxford Business Group’s hallmark of unrivalled market intelligence combines the publisher’s international expertise with the on-the-ground knowledge of world class, locally-based institutions.
Elizabeth Boissevain, Regional Director of Oxford Business Group says,
“By developing and strengthening our industry specific partnerships we are able to offer our subscribers the best possible analysis of key market sectors.
The collaboration with Oxford Business Group also allows our partners to enhance their brand name internationally, as the Emerging Markets Series is considered to be among the most prestigious and sought-after economic intelligence publications available anywhere.
As Bahrain continues to attract an increasing amount of foreign interest and investment there is more demand for independent economic research and according to Elham Hassan, Managing Partner of PWC ”Emerging Bahrain 2006 provides in-depth analysis of all sectors of the kingdom’s economy, including a detailed look at the accounting environment specifically geared to the foreign investor –as is the whole publication”.
