Bahrain's water sector is gradually undergoing reform and is increasingly open to foreigndirect investment. The process is tentative, with Crown Prince Salman, appointed as deputy prime ministerin Q113, hopefully able to promote a conciliatory agenda and push for economic reform. The country'swater infrastructure is in need of extensive expansion and modernisation, and this is likely to remain apriority for the Bahrain authorities, as illustrated by the news that the Ministry of Public Works is forcingcontractors 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 deputyprime 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 bulwarkof conservatism and has opposed reform historically. The move does not necessarily mean that Salman isbecoming more powerful, but with his remit to promote economic and political reform, his elevation mayyet represent a positive development for the political and economic framework in Bahrain.
