Bahrain’s Labour Fund Tamkeen has announced that the Business Continuity Support Program applications will be resumed next week for enterprises that have previously begun the process earlier.
Tamkeen Chief Executive Dr Ebrahim Mohamed Janahi highlighted that the small and micro enterprises who have begun their Business Continuity Support Program applications but had not completed the process can still complete the form starting May 17 to May 19.
The decision is part of Tamkeen’s continued efforts to assist and support enterprises by ensuring that the largest possible segment of small and micro enterprises can benefit from this support program, he said.
He highlighted that all applicants that have saved their forms will be able to resume their application automatically when logging into Tamkeen’s portal.
Dr Janahi reiterated Tamkeen’s continued efforts towards providing support, calling on all enterprises to complete their applications and to attach the required documents in order to receive financial grant and benefit from the support program which will help them cover their operational expenses partially.
Dr Janahi also noted that the Business Continuity Support Program is part of the economic stimulus package, recently announced by the government, and as such, Tamkeen has redirected all of its programs towards supporting the private sector, particularly the small and micro enterprises, during the current situation.
Dr Janahi emphasised that these enterprises play a big role in creating quality job opportunities and contribute towards building a sustainable economy. -TradeArabia News Service
