British Prime Minister Theresa May will arrive in Manama aiming to develop post-Brexit trade with the Gulf region, BBC reported. She will be the first UK prime minister and female politician to attend the six-nation Gulf Co-operation Council.

The prime minister will attend a dinner with the leaders of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, and Oman on Tuesday evening, before addressing the plenary session on Wednesday morning.

She will announce a space technology tie-up with Abu Dhabi and new multiple five-year visa entry system for UK firms doing business in Saudi Arabia.

“There is so much we can do together – whether it is helping one another to prevent terrorist attacks, Gulf investment regenerating cities across the UK or British businesses helping Gulf countries to achieve their long-term vision of reform,” Mrs May said in a statement. “So I hope my visit will herald the start of a new chapter in relations between the United Kingdom and the Gulf.”
