Secured Lending Law Advising in Bahrain and Qatar

March 1, 2007 - March 5, 2007

CLDP worked with legal stakeholders in Bahrain and Qatar to develop secured lending laws allowing entrepreneurs to borrow on real as well as movable property. Bahraini and Qatari banking executives and lawyers emphasized the importance of securing property in order to allow for more reliable commercial transactions for SMEs in the region. CLDP's secured lending law development efforts in Bahrain and Qatar are designed to facilitate the process by which banks can lend to private enterprises, and SMEs in particular, to create economic opportunities for entrepreneurs. Effective secured lending laws in the Middle East will increase the confidence of banks to lend to SMEs and allow these enterprises to borrow more readily against their assets.
