In order to support the development of Brunei Darussalam’s priority clusters, emphasis continues to be placed to improve the business services industry.
The business services industry covers a wide range of sub-sectors, including the following:
Transport and Logistics
Business Process Outsourcing
By leveraging on Brunei Darussalam’s strategic location at the heart of ASEAN and on a number of important trade routes including the Maritime Silk Road, as well as its access to raw materials from BIMP-EAGA and key markets in Asia Pacific and Oceania through various Free Trade Agreements (FTAs), Brunei Darussalam can be an ideal destination for foreign direct investment (FDI) companies to establish their regional trading, processing and distribution operations to cover the market within BIMP-EAGA, ASEAN, China and Australia to name a few. One opportunity could be in the establishment of transshipment and processing hubs for halal meat, tapping onto Brunei Darussalam stringent and government-backed halal certification process.
The increase in demand for logistic services will naturally create a need for a robust supporting ecosystem in order for the logistics industry in Brunei Darussalam to be competitive. As such, Brunei Darussalam foresees and welcomes investments in various supporting activities which include:
Ship Maintenance and Repair
Container Maintenance and Repair
Supply Chain Management
