British Ambassador visits RCSI Bahrain campus


RCSI Bahrain this week welcomed His Excellency Simon Martin CMG, British Ambassador to The Kingdom of Bahrain, for a tour of the campus and a meeting with the Executive Committee.
COO Stephen Harrison-Mirfield conducted the tour before Ambassador Martin met with President, Professor Sameer Otoom to discuss the university's ongoing activities.
Previously the Deputy Private Secretary to Their Royal Highnesses, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, Ambassador Martin joined the UK's Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) in 1984 and served in London, Rangoon, Budapest and Prague, in a number of policy and commercial roles, before being appointed Her Britannic Majesty's Ambassador to The Kingdom of Bahrain in September 2015.
The visit coincides with a series of celebrations taking place across Bahrain on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of relations between Bahrain and the UK and follows on from RCSI Bahrain's participation in a special symposium organised by the Higher Education Council last month to promote collaborations with UK institutions.
