Former German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder is heading a 25-member high-level trade delegation to Bahrain on a visit with a focus on commerce and investment ties.

Schroeder will deliver a speech at the Bahrain-Germany Business Forum, alongside Bahrain’s trade and commerce minister, and will tour several business and industrial facilities.

Political and trade relations between the two countries have been steadily progressing and last month, Dr Hubert Lang, Germany’s ambassador to Bahrain, stressed his country’s readiness to provide facilities for Bahrain’s private sector.

Cooperation includes the construction of the first German school and a specialised German orthopaedic hospital.

A project for recycling waste, glass, empty cans, electronic and electrical appliances and a solar energy project are also being mulled by investors.
