Here are some of Maestro Sersea’s thoughts: Bahrain, despite it’s remarkably small size, has taken major steps to diversify its strong economy beyond petroleum production and aluminum production, hospitality, retail sector, and finance. Bahrain plays a balancing act between its two large neighbors, Iran and Saudi Arabia. The Bahraini government has been confronting pro-democracy protests. I suggest further efforts by the government to democratize the political and economic systems towards a more stable future.
