Bahrain King to Establish Music Institute in Morocco

2021-11-10 - 1:13 am

Bahrain Mirror: Several Arab media outlets have spoken about the King of Bahrain's decision, Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, to sponsor the establishment of a music institute to be called the "Bahrain Institute of Oriental Music" in the Moroccan city of Asilah.

The king's decision to sponsor the expenses of establishing this institute comes in light of the severe deficit of Bahrain's budget, a significant rise in public debt, and the Bahraini government's austerity measures towards the earnings of employees and retirees such as bonuses and annual increases, and in light of the increasing numbers of unemployment inside Bahrain.

It was remarkable that the official news agency in Bahrain "BNA", did not publish this news, which was broadcast and published by multiple Arab media outlets.

It is worth mentioning that the supervision of laying the foundation stone will take place next Tuesday in the presence of the King of Bahrain's information advisor and former Minister of Information Nabeel Al-Hamer, as well as the Secretary General of the Asilah Forum Foundation and former Moroccan Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation Mohamed Benaissa.
