Manama Expat Guide
Embark on a New Life in Manama
The capital of Bahrain, Manama is a rich metropolis of skyscrapers and activity. However, there are still traditional elements of Bahraini life to be found, including the famed storytellers and poets who perform to music and the bustling activity of the restored Bab el-Bahrain Souq.
As the economic center accounts for a significant portion of GDP, Manama is home to a number of financial institutions and the headquarters of several multinational corporations. Key industries include retail at the luxury shopping malls, insurance, banking, and exporting of cars, metal ores and electronics. The Bahrain Grand Prix helps to boost tourism, which is also a key part of the economy.
