Bahrain was a rich market for pearl trade. One morning, things changed as the Japanese discovered cheaper and more productive industrial alternatives. The Bahraini main trade collapsed, the fishing boats became deserted, and the Gulf region lost one of its most important financial resources. This same story can happen again with oil, especially since alternatives have been developing which encouraged governments in a number of countries to support electric cars, and plan to end the era of gasoline and diesel cars. Britain, France, Germany, the Netherlands, as well as India and China, have announced their intention to dispose of petroleum fuels for cars. We have already witnessed how cars replaced horses and donkeys. Today history repeats itself.
No one is aware of what is happening in the world or even doubts the need to move to a new stage relying less on oil.Abdulrahman al-Rashed
