Trade, Investment on Agenda of Visiting Brunei Delegation


Trade, investment on agenda of visiting Brunei delegation

Muscat: Ithraa will host a Brunei trade delegation headed by DatoPaduka Haji Ali Haji Apong, deputy minister, Prime Minister's Office and chairman of Brunei's Economic Development Board (BEDB), on Monday.

Topics on the agenda include ways of increasing trade and investment links particularly in the oil and gas, and food and beverage sectors as well as opportunities open to Omani businesses looking to improve commercial ties with Brunei and further penetrate the growing Asean (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) market.

Sheikh Ali Al Balushi, acting deputy chairman of Ithraa said:"Following on from our visit to Brunei in April 2014, we are looking to strengthen trade and investment ties with Brunei, an economy that is at the heart of one of the fastest growing regional economies in the world. Indeed, it provides an excellent regional base for Omani companies looking to expand beyond Brunei's domestic market."

Brunei's economy is dominated by the oil and gas sector, which provides over 60 per cent of GDP and over 90 per cent of foreign exports. While developing the downstream side of oil and gas, the Brunei government is also actively encouraging economic diversification, including the development of a knowledge economy.

"Ithraa's fully committed to opening new markets for Omani businesses in Southeast Asia, which we know will sustain and create local jobs and prosperity. During our trip to Brunei last year, we saw the potential that exists within this emerging market. For instance, Brunei's manufacturing sector has the potential to develop new industries both within and beyond the oil and gas industry not only through the utilisation of its rich biodiversity and natural resources but also its strategic location in the Asean region. In this regard, there are certainly opportunities for Omani companies to explore," commented Faris Al Farsi director-general of Investment, Ithraa.

Brunei's Economic Development Board is particularly interested in the food industry and is looking to attract major food and food ingredients companies into the country for exports. Brunei also has the potential to establish Research and Development centres for the development of innovative nutritional products through the utilisation of authentic local food ingredients that can lead to the manufacturing and processing of customised food products for global markets.

With approximately 600 million consumers, a growing middle class and abundant natural resources, Southeast Asia is a region of significant and growing economic interest to many Omani businesses.

UN: Brunei Economic Growth Projection 2.5% in 2015


Brunei projected to reach 2.5 per cent economic growth this year
Posted date: January 14, 2015

BRUNEI Darussalam is projected to reach a 2.5 per cent economic growth with an inflation rate at 0.7 per cent this year, compared to the GDP growth of 5.1 per cent and inflation rate of 0.2 per cent last year, a report from the United Nations (UN) said yesterday.

The unemployment rate for this year stands at around four per cent, almost similar to that of 2014.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) late last year said the GDP growth should rise to five-and-a-half per cent in 2014, and projected the Sultanate’s GDP to be 3.0 per cent in 2015 and 3.4 per cent in 2016.

UN in its report noted growth in Asia-Pacific developing economies will pick up moderately in 2015. Prospects for growth would be better if supported by much-needed structural reforms, and could also be boosted by lower oil prices, which is an opportunity to mobilise resources for inclusive and sustainable development.

The steep decline in oil prices in recent months may be the start of a longer-term trend. It will have a significant, yet varying impact across the region.

The year-end update estimates that for energy-importing countries, a $10 per barrel fall in the oil price in 2015 would translate into an increase in GDP growth of up to 0.5 percentage points.

Declining global oil prices are a valuable opportunity for Asia-Pacific economies to reduce fuel subsidies that account for a large share of national budgets in many countries in the region. Regressive fossil fuel subsidies more often benefit the rich and have little impact on reducing poverty.

The savings from a cut in these could be better invested into more productive and inclusive development, the report added.

UN Economic and Social Commission of Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) estimated that savings from energy subsidies could, for example, finance the provision of income security to all elderly and persons with disabilities as well as universal access to health and education in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines and Thailand.

“This is a particularly critical and opportune time to decrease subsidies,” ESCAP Executive Secretary Dr Shamshad Akhtar said, noting that this would not only reduce budgetary strains but also prepare governments for the near future when global financing may be even more challenging to secure.

“Reducing subsidies can raise significant public financial resources forproductive investment in the region and could make needed funds available for financing sustainable development,” Dr Shamshad Akhtar added.
