Bahrain International Investment Park (BIIP)

The Bahrain International Investment Park (BIIP) was established in 2005 by the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, and Tourism (MOICT) as the Kingdom’s flagship strategic site to attract multinationals and to export-orientated indigenous companies to locate manufacturing and professional services in Bahrain. The BIIP is one of seven industrial areas owned by the MOICT; each area caters for a variety of business and investment needs.

In line with national industrial strategy, the Government of Bahrain has developed the Bahrain International Investment Park (BIIP) to provide a world-class location for internationally focused businesses servicing regional and international markets.
