"Those properties are not subject to a limited period lease, as is the case with other industrial areas of the Muharraq Governorate. Moreover the owner has the choice to best utilize the property in whatever way is seen suitable to the land and the purpose of the investment," stated Dr Al Bastaki.
"Another important feature is its competitive pricing, as Manara aimed to provide the highest quality of services coupled with competitive pricing, of which promises great interest as the starting point of a promising future for industrial development in Bahrain," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
