Water purification equipment can be imported to Bahrain without SASO certificate.However, population in Bahrain is only 1.31 million ,the market is small.
3) English and Arabic
Like the people of Dubai and Singapore, almost everyone speaks English and Arabic in this country. Therefore, business, tourism and investment in Bahrain should be a smooth experience.

8) Gasoline Strategy
Bahrain’s cheapest gasoline is priced at NT$15/liter, but it is still about three times more expensive than in Saudi Arabia.
8.1 Automotive travel between Saudi Arabia and Bahrain is made conveniently possible via a 1.5-hour drive over a cross-sea bridge. In order to prevent Bahrainis from purchasing cheaper gasoline from Saudi Arabia, the Saudi Arabian government restricts all Bahraini vehicles from carrying more than half a tank of gasoline upon their return to Bahrain, and no extra gasoline may be purchased.
9) Telecommunications Service Providers (TSP)
Bahrain has a population of about 1.31 million, which is equivalent to the population of Changhua County, yet there are five telecommunications service providers, resulting in fierce competition.
