  • AIESEC in Bahrain Interns Reception Booklet

  • Dear Intern, On behalf of AIESEC in Bahrain, we welcome you to an experience of a lifetime. We know that AIESEC itself presents many opportunities and we are extremely delighted that you chose Bahrain to do your internship in. During the decade, many people like yourself have come here, and I am proud to say that they have gone back - changed, fulfilled and awe struck. But more than that they truly experienced Bahrain and the friends and memories they made while they were here is something no one can take from them. We're very proud of the experience that we were able to provide the interns with, and I'm sure that you, like the others will also be moved in the same way. Have the best time you can, and don't be afraid to get in touch. Bahrain has so much to offer, and you are already an ambassador for us. Love, AIESEC Bahrain

    Location: Arabian Gulf Time: GMT + 3 Area: 750km2, 290sqmi Population: 1.243.596 Population Density: 1,189.5/km2, 3,126.5/sqmi Capital: Manama Geography: Bahrain is a generally flat andaridarchipelago, consisting of a lowdesertplain rising gently to a low central escarpment, in the Arabian Gulf, east of Saudi Arabia. The highest point is the 134m (440 ft)Jabal ad Dukhan. Bahrain has a total area of 665km2(257 sqmi), which is slightly larger than theIsle of Man, though it is smaller than the nearbyKing Fahd International Airportnear Dammam, Saudi Arabia (780km2(301 sqmi)). As an archipelago of thirty-three islands, Bahrain does not share a land boundary with another country but does have a 161km (100 mi) coastline and claims a further 22km (12 nmi) ofterritorial seaand a 44km (24 nmi)contiguous zone. Bahrain's largest islands areBahrain Island,Muharraq Island,Umm an Nasan, andSitrah. Bahrain has mild winters and very hot, humid summers. Bahrain's natural resources include large quantities of oil and natural gas as well as fish stocks. Arable land constitutes only 2.82% of the total area. Desert constitutes 92% of Bahrain, and periodic droughts and dust storms are the main natural hazards for Bahrainis. Environmental issues facing Bahrain include desertification resulting from the degradation of limited arable land, coastal degradation (damage to coastlines,coral reefs, and sea vegetation) resulting from oil spills and other discharges from large tankers, oil refineries, distribution stations, and illegalland reclamationat places such asTubli Bay. The agricultural and domestic sectors' over-utilization of the Dammam Aquifer, the principalaquiferin Bahrain, has led to itssalinizationby adjacent brackish and saline water bodies.
