No plans for new projects in Manama this year

The Bahraini government has not allocated funds for new projects in the capital, Manama, Gulf Daily News has reported. Councillors have said a list of developments presented to them by the municipalities and urban planning affairs ministry were similar to those earmarked for 2009-2010 and 2011-2012, and have yet to be implemented despite funds already being allocated. They also said ministry officials said that the $10bn 'GCC Marshall Plan' cannot be used to purchase land or carry out beautification projects. The ministry said it had not spent any money on new projects in 2012 because of a funding shortfall linked to it being owed BD30m from the Electricity and Water Authority in late municipal payments.
