Japan has been a long-standing major trade partner of Bahrain. The latest statistics show that there was a huge increase in export from Bahrain to Japan in 2018 and that the total trade volume reached around two billion dollars. Japan’s main export items are vehicles and machinery, while Japan’s main import items from Bahrain are oil, petrochemical products and aluminium. Japan is the sixth-largest exporter to Bahrain.
The Embassy of Japan worked hard in the past year to offer people in Bahrain as many chances as possible to appreciate Japanese culture so that they understand the thoughts and everyday lives of Japanese people who are behind various Japanese products
Next year in 2020, Tokyo will host the Olympics and Paralympic Games in July and August. I look forward to seeing many Bahraini athletes competing in the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympic Games. Also, I hope that many Bahraini people, in addition to the official delegation will visit Japan on that occasion and enjoy Japanese hospitality.
