The government has launched a one-stop trade information website that consolidates requirements, opportunities, and explainers for importers and exporters.
Brunei Trade, launched by the Ministry of Finance and Economy (MoFE) on April 26, houses the latest information for importers and exporters as well as a directory of local companies’ products for foreign buyers.
The website is aimed at socialising trade-related information as part of the government’s wider efforts to improve connectivity to the global market, with the Sultanate being a participant of several notable free-trade agreements including the world’s largest trade bloc, the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP).
Acting Director of MoFE’s Trade Division Nor Zerlina Hj Momin added that the website also contains information on tariff rates, trade-related agreements, trade shows as well as step-by-step tutorials on importing and exporting.
The information-based Brunei Trade complements the existing Brunei Darussalam National Single Window (BDNSW) – a common online platform for submitting documentation for importing and exporting to controlling agencies.
Brunei Trade also now houses the Brunei Darussalam National Trade Repository, previously a trade-related website offering similar information. Visitors can also be directed to statistics on Brunei’s trade performance.
Second MoFE Minister and Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office YB Dato Seri Setia Dr Awg Hj Mohd Amin Liew Abdullah launched the website at an event at MoFE’s Theatre Hall, alongside senior MoFE personnel and leading representatives from the private sector.
Inquiries relating to trade or the website can be directed to MoFE’s Trade Division through 2383696, email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
