About Bahrain: Bahrain is a group of 33 islands, with an area of 707 sq. kilometers. It is situated in the Arabian Gulf, off the east coast of Saudi Arabia.

Bahrain's economy is dependent on oil. The large oil refinery at the island of Sitra processes local oil as well as oil from Saudi Arabia. Oil is transported through pipelines. Income from this refinery is more important than the country's own oil production.

The country also has a large aluminum smelter, the 3rd largest in the world. It exploits natural gas to generate electricity.

Other industries are small in scale. Over the years, Bahrain has become a major regional banking and communications centre. Additionally, Bahrain is a centre for insurance and financing.

Bahrain has formed an arbitration service to resolve disputes between employers and workers. The government of Bahrain stands for the security of the personnel employed in its territory, and has focused on eliminating fundamentalism through its reform program.

Due to the fact that the population is rapidly expanding and it is becoming increasingly expensive to hire expatriates and the government has focused on economic diversification into basic commodities such as aluminum, ship repairs, and tourism, apart from giving high priority to Bahrain becoming the regional financial and commercial headquarters. The monarchy has given top slot to education, expansion of economy and training the local Bahrain population in key areas in order to combat unemployment. The government's Alba expansion project has generated 10,000 jobs while Formula One racing has added another 6000 jobs.

There is no personal income tax and repatriation is allowed fully and freely.

Bahrain has an active nightlife for the expatriate and local population. There are plenty of night spots such as bars, pubs, lounges, discothèques and live bands.
