Export Bahrain has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Tradeling, the eMarketplace focused on business-to-business (B2B) transactions in the MENA region, to support Bahrain-based businesses to export across the region through the platform.


The agreement will contribute to increasing the trade volume between Bahrain-based companies and international buyers and promoting and creating awareness for local and regional buyers about companies headquartered in Bahrain, Export Bahrain said in a statement.


The MoU also supports companies in Bahrain to be part of Tradeling programmes and avail services including inventory management, warehousing, and custom clearance, that is in addition to onboarding Bahrain-based sellers on Tradeling on a regular basis.


“This MoU with Tradeling unlocks valuable opportunities for businesses in Bahrain to connect with B2B sellers and buyers around the world, offering them a wide variety of products in various categories," Export Bahrain Acting Chief Executive Sharif Abdulkhaliq said.


"It serves to actualise our strategic goal to enable Bahrain-based companies, especially SMEs, access to openings that contribute to achieving their expansion and international growth objectives."


E-commerce has become a significant growth tool for any business, and Tradeling platform offers SMEs in Bahrain an ideal gateway to a wider customer base across the MENA region and gain broader recognition of their products and services, she added.

We look forward to seeing companies in Bahrain benefiting from this leading platform as a launchpad towards regional and global growth.”
