Infrastructure development improves land connectivity in East ASEAN region

THE Brunei-Indonesia-Malaysia-Philippines East ASEAN Growth Area (BIMP-EAGA) has improved land connectivity in the island of Borneo thanks to infrastructure development.

According to Thomas Koh, country director for Brunei at the BIMP-EAGA Business Council, chartered and scheduled buses and coaches are travelling daily from Brunei to Pontianak, West Kalimantan and Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.

In a statement issued yesterday, Koh said land connectivity ensures the steady movement of people or goods. Data from BIMP-EAGA transport initiatives revealed total movement of people via road has increased from 200,000 in 2009 to approximately 500,000 in 2014. He said Brunei can become a distribution centre in BIMP-EAGA as the sultanate allows the duty-free import and export of most products. The opening of border control posts until midnight in Brunei has also made border crossing easier.
