(MENAFN) Bahrain Bourse’s Director, Fouad Rahman Rashid, confirmed that the stock exchange was not planning a merger with another partner, but that it was looking forward to an increase in liquidity through attracting new listings on its own, reported Gulf Daily News.

These statements come in response to s Bahraini paper publishing news about the bourse searching for a collaboration agreement with another one in response to the downturn it faced due to the political unrest in the country.

Rashid emphasized that the stock market had strategic plans to boost liquidity and volumes internally, but that no tie-ups or mergers were a part of these plans.
