Bahrain - Government Procurement Subcontracting Webinar

February 16, 2021

CLDP has partnered with the US General Services Administration (GSA) and the US Small Business Association (SBA) in order to provide guidance to the Bahrain Ministry of Industry, Commerce, and Tourism (MOICT) regarding developing a subcontracting database that would facilitate large companies and SMEs in contracting together for Bahrain government tenders. On February 16, 2021, GSA and SBA executives presented a two-part webinar on public procurement subcontracting database development and implementation.  Part I of the webinar presented by the GSA addressed the technology solutions required to launch a public procurement subcontracting database.  Part II of the program presented by the SBA addressed implementation of an adequate subcontracting database. 

Upcoming Programs

August 1, 2020 - April 30, 2021

Throughout the quarter, CLDP engaged with numerous experts to prepare and record eight separate sessions on trade topics, specifically designed for Afghanistan’s approximately 25 Commercial Attachés posted throughout the world. In May 2018, CLDP spent one week training the same group of Attachés in a comprehensive course designed for them prior to their departure. This updated training course is intended to provide more advanced training on relevant topics now that the Attachés have been serving in their posts for more than two years.  The topics for these presentations were identified based on consultations with the Attachés and relevant stakeholders in the last quarter. Topics include drafting international contracts, attracting foreign direct investment, negotiation strategies, and two sessions on working trade shows. The series of pre-recorded virtual presentations, including translated copies of the presentations, will be delivered on a rolling basis to the Attachés. In addition, future topics will be recorded and shared with the participants. These virtual recordings will be saved in an online repository, which will be available for any interested party to view, including the private sector.
