Brunei’s Ministry of Development officials on Monday held talks with Malaysia’s overseas project unit to establish a future cooperation on infrastructure developments in the Asean’s oil rich country, reported The Brunei Times Tuesday.

The talks, in the form of an information dialogue, was between senior officials from Brunei’s Ministry of Development and Malaysia’s Special Overseas Project Unit, under the Economic Planning of Prime Minister’s Office.

The Brunei Times reported that the dialogue, which took place at the ministry’s conference room, saw the Malaysian delegation probing about possible business ventures as well as the workings of the ministry.

“We are hoping that this meeting would give us an opportunity to cooperate with the Bruneian government and offer our services,” said Nurul Hayati Khalil, a senior executive from Professional Services Development Corporation (PSDC) from Malaysia, was quoted by The Brunei Times as saying.

Meanwhile, Brunei’s deputy permanent secretary Mohammad Zin Salleh also expressed optimism over the outcome of the meet. “This meeting is quite useful as both sides have welcomed each other’s expertise”, he said.

The Malaysian delegates also expressed their further interests in hearing that locals can form joint ventures with foreign partners.

One of the Malaysian officers, who declined to be named, said that this will pave way for Malaysia to be involved in some local ventures. “Brunei has such vast potential when it comes to infrastructure,” she noted.
