Bahrain's water sector is gradually undergoing reform and is increasingly open to foreign
direct investment. The process is tentative, with Crown Prince Salman, appointed as deputy prime minister
in Q113, hopefully able to promote a conciliatory agenda and push for economic reform. The country's
water infrastructure is in need of extensive expansion and modernisation, and this is likely to remain a
priority for the Bahrain authorities, as illustrated by the news that the Ministry of Public Works is forcing
contractors to work round the clock to repair sewage systems.
The March 2013 elevation of the reformist-inclined Crown Prince Salman Bin Hamad al-Khalifa, to deputy
prime minister, may suggest a shift in favour of the pro-reform elements within the governing apparatus.
The incumbent prime minister, Salman's uncle Khalifa bin Salman, on the other hand, is seen as a bulwark
of conservatism and has opposed reform historically. The move does not necessarily mean that Salman is
becoming more powerful, but with his remit to promote economic and political reform, his elevation may
yet represent a positive development for the political and economic framework in Bahrain.
