Currently Lulu provides best quality training to absorb them in various managerial and specialized sections to Bahrainis. There are more than 1200 Bahrainis who work with us not only here but in other GCC countries also and we will continue to support Governments’ Bahranization plan by giving employment to more Bahrainis in our new projects."
