Brunei entrepreneurs eye tie-up with Malaysia agency

SENIOR members from the Federation of Brunei Malay Entrepreneurs (PPPMB) are currently in Kuala Lumpur to pursue collaborative economic projects with Malaysia’s entrepreneurial and rural development agency (MARA).

A particular cooperation is in the area of education in which MARA is planning to set up a higher learning institute in Brunei, PPPMB President Dr Hj Abd Latif Chuchu said in a telephone interview yesterday.

“We are meeting them to follow up and further discuss business ideas brought up during their visit in Brunei recently,” he said.

MARA has a number of colleges and universities throughout Malaysia.

Dr Hj Abd Latif said PPPMB and MARA will also be develop an entrepreneurship training programme to coach and develop Malay SMEs in Brunei.

Last month, MARA held a dialogue session with PPPMB in conjunction with a one-day working visit to the Sultanate.

MARA Director Hassan Mohd Amin in a sideline interview following the dialogue told The Brunei Times that it has appointed its Sarawak state office to assist with future collaborative programmes with PPPMB.

The two parties have arranged reciprocal trade and business programmes to enhance cooperation, he said.

The first programme will see PPPMB members going to Kuala Lumpur to participate in trade exhibitions, training workshops and working visits to several parts of Malaysia.

Hassan said MARA will also send its own delegation of entrepreneurs to join similar programmes in the Sultanate which will be held early next year.

MARA, or the Council of Trust for the People, an agency under the purview of Malaysia’s Ministry of Rural and Regional Development, was set up on March 1, 1966 as a statutory body by an Act of Parliament, according to its website information.
