THE uniquely-shaped Harbour Towers, or The Financial Centre, of the $1.4 billion Bahrain Financial Harbour (BFH) ambitious project will be officially opened on May 2 in a grand way.

Marking yet another milestone in the Middle East’s rapidly evolving financial markets, the Bahrain Financial Harbour Holding Company (BFHHC) is in the midst of giving final touches to the formal opening ceremony for Phase I of the landmark BFH.

The formal opening ceremony of BFH Phase I would be through a specially designed day-long event titled ‘Enterprising Bahrain’ and will be held under the patronage of the Prime Minister Shaikh Khalifa bin Sulman Al Khalifa.

The opening ceremony will include a regional financial services summit. The Financial Centre consists of the Harbour Towers and Harbour Mall, offering a mix of office space, commercial units and retail outlets.

Commenting on the formal opening of the Financial Centre, Esam Janahi, BFH chairman, said, “Over the last couple of years the financial markets in the Middle East have been undergoing a major change, rapidly emerging as one of the fastest growing markets globally."

"BFH was conceived with the aim of providing the region with its first fully-integrated financial district positively contributing towards enhancing the reputation of the Kingdom of Bahrain as the financial capital of the Middle East,” he added.

Significantly, Enterprising Bahrain will also include a high profile conference titled ‘Middle East Financial Services Summit’ and a specially themed evening event, where it will host 350 of the world’s leading Banking industry professionals in addition to other local, regional and international dignitaries.
