Is Bahrain facing VAT implementation hurdles?

Saudi Arabia and the UAE led the way in January 2018 with the introduction of a 5 percent value-added tax (VAT) as part of the unified GCC VAT Agreement – and Bahrain followed suit in January 2019. This measure in Bahrain, however, could be facing some hiccups. Value-added tax (VAT) is a type of consumption tax that is placed on the supply of goods and services.

Musing about a shared past

On stepping into the Industrial Arts Gallery at Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Mumbai City Museum, one is confronted with what seems like two large swimming pools. The aqueous-like installations are actually mounted pieces of cotton fabric, hand-printed with traditional Indonesian Batik designs in shades of deep blue and black. The creations, titled Blue to Black and Black to Blue, are the works of Berlin-based Dutch artist, Willem de Rooij, who through his art seeks to remind us about the Dutch colonial occupation of Indonesia and how it led to traditional designs of the island nation being mass produced and shipped...

Met Opera 'Damnation' revival becomes concert performances

The Metropolitan Opera is scrapping its previously announced revival of Berlioz's "La Damnation de Faust" next season and replacing it with concert performances. Robert Lepage's production debuted at the Met in 2008, based on a staging seen at the Saito Kinen Festival in Japan and the Paris Opera. The Met announced in February the staging would return for seven performances from Jan. 25 to Feb. 15 in 2020. The company made the unusual decision to make a switch after a show had been announced. It said in a statement that unanticipated technical demands forced it to change the production to...
