Bahrain seeks to host more major international events

BAHRAIN is seeking to host more major international events following the success of the Inter-Parliamentary Union’s (IPU) 146th Assembly held in the kingdom last week.

Shura Council Chairman Ali Saleh Al Saleh said, during the chamber’s weekly session yesterday, that huge collaborative efforts had gone into holding the IPU Assembly.

“We were all on the same page, whether Parliament or the Shura Council, to make the IPU a memorable experience,” he said.

“This wouldn’t have been possible without the valuable support of the Interior, Foreign, Health, Tourism and Information ministries, besides the Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority, the Bahrain International Circuit, and Bahrain Radio and Television alongside the local media.

“We see these partnerships as a door to stage more international events, hopefully parliamentary, in the near future as we are open to the world.

“The outcomes of the IPU gatherings will be put into work with immediate effect as we integrate them into local legislations, while balancing and upgrading the current ones.”

Meanwhile, members were also notified about six responses from ministers on questions directed by them.

Students from Saar Secondary School for Girls attended the session yesterday.

The financial and economic affairs committee held an urgent meeting ahead of the 2023-2024 national budget.

Members reviewed the government’s 2021 closing financial statement and submitted a report to Mr Al Saleh for inclusion in an upcoming session.
