Ladies and Gentlemen,


I had the great honor and privilege to be appointed as Bahrain’s Ambassador to China and to serve here since April 2014. I am currently the longest serving ambassador from the Arab Countries, and in my more than 7 years of my service, I have made countless close and lasting friendships; experienced the wonders of a magnificent, ancient country; gained from the wisdom of its culture; shared common dreams; and worked tirelessly with my team and Chinese partners to accomplish our goals.  Now I must pay attention to the advice of the great philosopher and teacher Confucius who instructed us “You can accompany a friend for a thousand journeys but at some time you must take your leave”.

When I arrived in Beijing, I could not have known or even imagined where my journey would lead me, but I was blessed with the company of industrious and dedicated colleagues and co-workers, the guidance and support of new friends, and the warmth and generosity of the Chinese people who constantly extended their hospitality and help to me and my mission. In the beginning of my journey, I was determined to follow the wisdom of Confucius who adviced, “wherever you go, go with all of your heart”. I have embraced this appointment,my co-workers and the Chinese people with all of my heart and have been rewarded in innumerable ways. I will admit now sincerely that I cannot say goodbye to those whom I have grown to love and respect, for the memories we have created will last a lifetime, and never know a goodbye.

So many milestones, achievements and memories flood through my head. Two years ago, we celebrated the 30th Anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Kingdom of Bahrain and the Great Peoples Republic of China. This was a joyous occasion, but it is only one in the many important milestones that we have achieved, and a beacon of light for the many accomplishments to come from our close and enduring relationship. Bahrain’s relationship with China extends back many centuries. Our relationship is deeply rooted in common history, geography, culture and economic exchanges.  The Silk Road was opened in 139 BC under the Han Dynasty and Bahrain has most likely traded with China and Asia along the Silk Road and across the sea lanes for over two millennia.

A half year before I arrived in Beijing, a landmark was established in our relationship with the historic visit of HM the King Hamad Bin Isa Al Khalifa to China (September 2013). During that visit, many major agreements were signed in investment and trade as well as culture, education, science and health exchanges. These agreements set expectations and benchmarks for elaborating and strengthening our mutual cooperation and work, and I have been determined to build on this platform ever since this visit. From 2015 to 2020 Chinese investment in Bahrain has grown. Leading Chinese global companies have invested in Bahrain and established a presence. International trade between us has more than doubled in the past ten years.

During my stay in China the visionary One Belt-One Road Initiative was launched by President Xi Jinping. As we look to the future in the 21st Century and even beyond, President Xi’s One Belt, One Road Initiative will prove to be a major force that inspired inter-regional economic cooperation and prosperity, massive new people-to-people communication networks and ultimately, more secure and peaceful international relations.

The OBOR is so much more than much publicized, wide-ranging economic and commercial ventures: it is a blueprint for a new international order – a Community of Common Destiny - that holds promise to create a new global system of peace, development and humanism. In his speech to the Arab League in Cairo in January 2017, President Xi said: “Instead of looking for a proxy in the Middle East, we promote peace talks; instead of seeking any sphere of influence, we call on all parties to join the circle of friends for the Belt and Road Initiative; instead of attempting to fill the “vacuum,” we build a cooperative partnership network for win-win outcomes.”

Bahrain is a Middle Eastern country suffering from decades of regional strife and conflict, so this message resonates deeply with us. President Xi demonstrated his profound commitment to the people of our region, and resolve to build a lasting and just peace. In the face of the many failures of the UN Security Council to promote peace in the Middle East, President Xi has invited Palestinian, Israeli and other Arab leaders to China and put forward Four Proposals for resolving the Arab-Israel conflict. We praise and are grateful for these efforts.




Bahrain and the GCC states are enthusiastic and steadfast partners in the OBOR because we share its visions, its inherent logic and programs that will bring peace and prosperity to its vast community. The goals are ambitious, the challenges are great, and we all recognize that much hard work, commitment, communication and collaboration is required, with some obstacles to be overcome along the way. But we know that we have the great Chinese nation to travel with us on this journey. I am reminded of the encouraging advice of Confucius: “Whenever it is clear that goals are not being realized, do not adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.” We are all in this journey together - as partners, and we will find the correct steps to succeed.



The logic of the OBOR’s economic, commercial and cultural goals is that they are based on mutual interest, shared values and complementarities that make the accomplishments valuable to all parties.  Complementarities have driven the growth of trade and commerce between China, Bahrain and its Arab Gulf States (GCC) partners. The continuing growth, innovation and competitiveness of Chinese industry have enabled it to emerge as a leading supplier to the GCC and world markets. In turn the Arab Gulf countries have become a large and reliable oil and gas supplier and cornerstone of Asia’s energy security. Both of us share a vision of developing more knowledge-based industries that prosper in a global network without hard borders. The Arab countries seek the large markets, world class products, investment opportunities and technologies that China offers; and the Arab countries offer China access to our rapidly growing markets, attractive investment opportunities, and abundant supplies of natural resources. The OBOR offers the infrastructure programs, resources and commercial framework to accomplish our goals.




The future development of the banking and finance industry is a key goal and enabler for the OBOR programs and Sino-Arab cooperation. I am proud to say that the financial ecosystem is a core strength of Bahrain and we intend to play a leading role in the cooperation and development of this system in the OBOR, and in Sino-Arab relations. Bahrain is striving to become a world leader in digital financial services, and it has made important strides towards this goal.


Like everybody else, the outbreak of the novel Coronavirus pandemic is an event that I will always remember. I can bear witness to how quickly and forcefully the Chinese government reacted to this huge, largely unknown and unpredictable global predator, demonstrating its strong public health capacities, its ability to innovate, and to mobilize prodigious resources to meet this unprecedented killer. China’s early response to the novel coronavirus became a model for the rest of the world and its sharing of technology, vaccines, genome data and vital resources saved millions of lives worldwide. Bahrain was one of the first countries to cooperate with China in its clinical trials of vaccine and the second country to approve the emergency registration of its vaccine.


This year I had the honour to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the Founding of the Chinese Communist Party and, ultimately, the Peoples Republic of China. On that monumental day, the Chinese nation began a long march in a new direction toward historic socio-economic achievements and a new vision of international relations.  


China’s achievements over the past 100 years are legendary: the dismantlement of a feudal system, the removal of foreign interference in domestic affairs, the creation of a blueprint for a modern economy, and the establishment of a new social order. China achieved the fastest economic growth - measured by real GDP - of any major economy in recorded world history in the last 30 years, averaging over 10% per year. In 1950, around the time of the War of Liberation, China had the 45th largest economy in the world; in 2020, China had the world’s second largest economy. In 2020, with all of the challenges of the global Covid pandemic, social, economic and health upheaval, China was the first major country to contain the virus, and the first to achieve positive economic growth.


Along with professional satisfaction, my personal journey through China has been filled with awe-inspiring sights and sounds, amazing people, countless personal growth experiences and occasional encounters with legends. During my stay in China, I have travelled to most of the regions, met and worked with people of dozens of ethnicities, and was privileged to experience many different traditions and cultures. I hesitate to single out memorable sights. Time does not allow me to begin to comment on the natural beauty of China.


As I have grown to love China, it is my wish that the Chinese come to love Bahrain and its people. I encourage Chinese visitors to come to Bahrain to experience the marvels of its sights and sounds. The Kingdom of Bahrain is “the Pearl of the Arabian Gulf” and a tourist centre well-known for its heritage, sea resorts, dining, the Grand Prix and innumerable sports, as well as educational, medical care, cultural, and scientific activities, that encourage enduring global networks of interactions between peoples.


As I ponder the future, I am confident that the relationship that Bahrain shares with China will grow more extensive, even stronger, warmer and more cooperative, based on important common values, visions and trust. Like China, the true strength of Bahrain is its people. Bahrain is located at the crossroads of great civilizations, and thriving on foreign trade and investment. Bahrainis are excellent partners for China: we are located at the crossroads of African, Asian and European markets, and we share the Community of Common Destiny’s vision of a future of inclusiveness, peace and cooperation for the benefit of mankind.


As I prepare to take my leave, remember the words of Confucius as they apply to me: you will always have a friend afar that will bring our distant lands near. I came here with an open heart, to learn the heart of China through shared work and challenges; joys and sorrows; disappointments and accomplishments. I am leaving wiser and more fulfilled for the experience, with hope, pride and the knowledge that true friends, no matter how far apart, fill the human spirit.


Finally, I wish to greet and thank each of you who have come here today. I can never express the depth of my gratitude and affection for each of you, for your kindness, friendship, guidance, endless support, and collaboration: you have all had a lasting impact on me and my mission, in your own unique ways, and that will never be forgotten.  


Bless you all with my deepest gratitude and best wishes.
