He said that “Bahraini investors have been invited by PM to invest in different development projects in Pakistan… Bahrain is a vast market for Pakistani man power. Skilled Pakistani workers are in great numbers working in Bahrain and contributing in maximizing the revenues in billions of dollars per year. We should have to avail further opportunities in Bahrain to provide more skilled workers. Pakistan could play a vital role in gulf countries in
strengthening bilateral relations.”
