About Bahrain (BAH)
Bahrain is an Arab island nation in the Persian Gulf. It is an archipelago consisting of the Bahrain Island and several other small islands surrounding it. The Kingdom of Bahrain, as it is officially known, was one of the first Gulf States to discover oil, but its rapidly declining oil reserves forced the country to diversify its economy. Today, the economy relies mostly on tourism, hospitality, retail, and processing crude oil from neighbouring states. Bahrain has also started investing heavily in finance and has endeavoured to become a leading regional banking centre, especially with respect to Islamic finance.
Bahrain is believed to be the site of the ancient Dilmun civilization. In the late 1700s, the Al-Khalifa royal family took over Bahrain. In order to secure their holdings, they entered a series of treaties with the United Kingdom and became a protectorate of the British. Bahrain attained its independence in 1971. Leaving the Emirates status, Bahrain was declared a kingdom in 2002. The vast numbers of expats coming into the country for their livelihood had people talking about Bahrain as a country showcasing immense cultural diversity.
