The event will offer the opportunity for the Bahraini private sector to springboard into emerging Asian markets, especially those in ASEAN. Bahrain will also use the occasion to push efforts to facilitate bilateral trade, exchange information and data, develop a mechanism to settle trade disputes.

According to the BCCI, the education, infrastructure, agriculture and food security, and manufacturing sectors will be on top of the agenda.

Trade between the Asean and the GCC was valued at $83 billion in 2010, up 25 per cent on 2009, as per the latest figures available.
