The Bahraini government said on Wednesday it would pay the salaries of private sector employees for three months effective from April to June.

The move comes as part of efforts by the Gulf kingdom to “mitigate the social and economic impacts of the coronavirus pandemic, and to maintain the growth of the private sector and enhance its vital role in supporting the wheel of the national economy,” said Labor Ministry in a statement today.

This initiative, which will benefit more than 100,000 registered private sector employees for three months starting in April, will cost the government 215 million Bahraini dinars ($570m).
