"Bahrain has one of the fastest growing economies in the Middle East and is a country that continues to diversify with a strong focus on residential, leisure and retail opportunities" said Jennifer Fox, president, International Division and president, Fairmont Brand, FRHI Hotels & Resorts. "With the government's plans to develop the southern area into a major residential, commercial and entertainment hub, we believe it's a very opportune time to be entering the market and look forward to being a key part of the country's future growth."
