MANAMA: Bahrain’s near-term economic growth rate is likely to remain above three per cent well into 2018 and beyond with the national accounts data continuing to surprise on the upside, according to the Economic Development Board’s (EDB) latest quarterly report. The December 2017 Bahrain Economic Quarterly now available on the EDB’s website says that the kingdom’s growth dynamics will continue to be shaped above all by the conflicting forces of infrastructure project implementation and fiscal consolidation.
