Bahrain market slips, whilst economy is expected to rebound in 2012-continued

March 14, 2012--Bahrain: The Bahrain Al Share Index ended off 0.27% to close at 1,149.13 points in amid lacklustre trading Wednesday.
Bahrain Telecom fell 1.46%. Earlier in the day, Kuwait-based Global Investment House said "the Bahraini economy is expected to recover strongly by 3.6% in real terms in 2012 (up from a 1.5%-decline in the year before) as oil prices are expected to remain high and other sectors such as tourism and financial sector recover after a turbulent 2011." Global added that "compared to its regional peers, in the GCC, Bahrain is the least oil dependent nation. However, it still forms a major proportion as mentioned above. The contribution has picked up in 2010 and likely to remain high in 2011 due to sustained rise in crude oil prices."
