The Mistubishi Corporation will be creating new projects in Brunei to help the country’s growing industrial sector and to create new job opportunities as well. These projects include an ammonia production and pharmaceuticals facility to complement the ongoing projects on automated cultivation, sustainable agriculture and solar power feasibility.
To manage the projects more efficiently, Mitsubishi will also be opening a new office in Takaful Building in Jalan Pemancha in the capital of Bandar Seri Begawan. According Mr Kazuyuki Mori, MC’s Chief Operating Officer, Natural Gas Divison A, this expansion is part of the company’s commitment to contribute to the local community, wherever they may be. He also added that they have been working with the oil and gas sector of the country so they are always on the lookout on how to continually diversify the industry.
Brunei has been envisioning industrial diversification, economic sustainability, creation of employment and human resource development for future projects and this is Mitsubishi’s contribution to that vision. They will be closely working with the Brunei Economic Development Board (BEDB) to make sure of their alignment.
One other project that they’re working on is the advanced microalgae biotechnology for pharmaceutical use. They are currently in the feasibility study and R&D phase but if the project pushes through, it will greatly benefit the food, supplements and healthcare industry.
