The Bahrain Japan Business & Friendship Society (BJBFS) has encountered successful years, since its inauguration in August 2008.  The Society has seen a tremendous increase in its activities, whether they are social, economical, cultural, or scientific and has played its major part in bridging the gap between the Kingdom of Bahrain and Japan. We are happy to say that the Society has reached its objectives set for its first three years.

An ambitious strategy is being planned for the Society in the coming year which will take it to a new stage in its development. Committees headed by leading members have been set up for different sectors,each with its own objectives and strategies and all having a common aim of more understanding and cooperation between the Kingdom of Bahrain and Japan, for the benefits of both.

The success of the Society, of which the Website and its contents are a part of, could not have been possible without the support of the Society’s President, BOARD Members, Members, Administration, Government Ministries in Bahrain, Embassy of Japan in The Kingdom of Bahrain, Embassy of The Kingdom of Bahrain in Japan.

We thank everyone who supported us and encourage those who have strong trading links with Japan to join us as Members.
