Bahrain Chamber of Commerce & Industry
Since ancient times, Bahrain has been a key trade and geographical centre in the Arabian Gulf. In the past it was an international passage for trade caravans coming and going through the Gulf and the Mediterranean, or in other direction towards the Indian subcontinent and the Far East. Hence Bahrain was highly reputed in the transit trade.

The people of this island came to have an instinctive feel for trade, and through their practice they gained an understanding of both local and foreign trade. In 1939, the first Chamber of Commerce in the Arabian Gulf was established in Bahrain under the name of the "General Traders' Association" and continued under that name until 1945 when the name was changed to "Bahrain Chamber of Commerce". Later it was in 1967 that it acquired the present name "Bahrain Chamber of Commerce & Industry". (BCC & I).
