Thursday, October 1st 2015
A GROUP of media representatives from the Kingdom of Thailand that paid a visit to the Tutong District yesterday was astonished to see the large scale industrial development taking place in this tiny district.
The district is currently producing seafood and dairy products targeting the international market.
The five-member delegation visited Hana Soy & World (B) Sendirian Berhad and Golden Corporation Sendirian Berhad’s processing plant, both located at the Serambangun Industrial Estate near Pekan Tutong.
In an interview, Valeerat Sakornphan, Director of Media and Information Management Division of the Foreign Office PRD who is leading the delegation, said she was least expecting to see export-oriented industries such as these here.
She noticed that the district is developing slowly but steadily from the ground up. She said this phase is good for balanced growth, developing manufacturing industry and at the same time protecting nature through eco and agro tourism.
The delegation kicked off its Tutong programme with a visit to Tutong District Office, where they attended a briefing and dialogue led by Haji Haizul bin Haji Yahya, Special Duties Officer at the Tutong District Office.
Welcoming the delegation to Hana Soy & World (B) Sendirian Berhad were Wan Krisnizaha binti Haji Osman, the company’s Vice-President and Kozo Tsuchiya, General Manager.
Hana Soy & World (B) Sendirian Berhad is a joint venture company between Al-Hana Enterprise, Brunei Darussalam and Soy & World International, Japan.
Golden Corporation Sendirian Berhad’s principal business is in aquaculture and seafood processing.
