Brunei, S’pore discuss environment issues

BRUNEI and Singapore have agreed to exchange ideas on green consumerism, such as using green labels to drive sustainable consumption and production.

A joint statement issued after the 10th Brunei-Singapore Annual Exchange of Visits yesterday said both countries will strengthen exchanges in water resources management through knowledge sharing.

Minister of Development Yang Berhormat Dato Seri Setia Hj Bahrin Abdullah and Singaporean Minister for the Environment and Water Resources Masagos Zulkifli Masagos Mohamad reaffirmed the outstanding relations between both countries and reiterated their commitments to enhance cooperation on environment.

“Singapore and Brunei will strengthen their knowledge sharing on development, implementation, operation and maintenance of water treatment plants and network systems, water demand management and water conservation, flood mitigation and used water management,” the statement read.

Both countries welcomed the exchange of information on air quality reporting systems particularly on PM10 and PM2.5 for haze monitoring in the region.

The ministers also endorsed continued collaboration in waste management by both countries, particularly the exchange of experiences in recycling of e-waste and food waste, and enforcement to curb littering.

Indonesia  to launch 13th economic package this month

Coordinating Economic Minister Darmin Nasution said on Wednesday that the government would release its 13th economic policy package in August, adding that the draft had been completed.

Darmin said the 13th package was largely an extension of the previous one, but would expand its focus beyond industry. The 12th package focused on small and medium enterprises.

"We are just waiting to schedule a meeting with the president," Darmin told reporters at his office. He refused to give the exact date the new policy package would come into effect.

 The ministry team must meet with President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo one more time to finalize the details, Darmin said.
