“The patronage of HRH the Prime Minister for the exhibition itself is a motive to the developers, and an encouraging point to all the participants to come out with intelligent innovations. I ‘m happy with HRH’s great support to the real estate sector in general and Bahraini projects in particular, this gives us a motive for more creativity and preparing the market for more and stronger projects, The Golden Gate project is a unique project in terms of location because its located in Bahrain Bay,it will be the tallest tower in Bahrain.
The project is the first Bahraini-Indian partnership, which came as an extension of a commercial partnership between Bahrain and India, which has spread since 5000 years, and what pleased me so far is that 60% of the owners of the project are Bahrainis,” VP of Golden Gate Eman Al Mannai, Expert and global real estate trainer, said.
The potential positive economic outlook has attracted several international participants.
