The Sultanate has invested in its infrastructure towards sustainability of trade activities, trans-border services and human activities to promote economic recovery.

This was said by Legislative Council (LegCo) member Yang Berhormat Pehin Orang Kaya Putera Maharaja Dato Paduka Haji Abdul Ghani bin Pehin Datu Pekerma Dewa Dato Paduka Haji Abdul Rahim during the First Plenary Session of the 11th Asia-Europe Parliamentary Partnership Meeting (ASEP 11), organised by the National Assembly and the Senate of Cambodia.

The LegCo member said the country understands the significance of instilling a sustainable economy for the next generation to ensure and realise Brunei Darussalam as a developed country with a stable GDP, by utilising knowledge and technology as the fundamentals
of development.

He underlined the need for a shift to digitalisation and its benefits to access platforms in a safe and accessible manner.

“We can benefit from the transformation towards digitalisation where it ensures accelerating works that prepare for the future,” he said.

Meanwhile, LegCo member Yang Berhormat Pengiran Haji Ali bin Pengiran Maon spoke during the topic of ‘Promoting Global Economic Recovery in the Era of COVID-19 and Beyond’.

He highlighted the 13 Priority Economic Deliverables (PEDs) under the ASEAN Summit theme ‘We Care, We Prepare, We Prosper’.

“The country’s plan for a post- pandemic recovery must ensure inclusivity of vulnerable groups to fill the gaps in the drive towards development,” he added.

Yang Berhormat Pengiran Haji Ali believed that with the close relations and cooperation with ASEAN countries and dialogue partners, the country will be able to achieve the PEDs and contribute to a positive recovery, digitalisation and sustainability.

The ASEP 11 saw the participation of 32 Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) partners’ Parliamentary bodies including ASEM, European and ASEAN member countries.

The Brunei delegation also included Secretary to the Cabinet Ministers’ Council and Clerk I to the LegCo Pehin Orang Kaya Pekerma Jaya Dato Paduka Haji Judin bin Haji Asar.

The meeting pressed on the importance of Asia-Europe coordination as part of multilateral relations of the people, Parliaments and governments between the two continents towards achieving mutual peace, stability, prosperity and sustainable developments.
