The Information Department under the Prime Minister’s Office, through its Tutong branch, in collaboration with the committee of the Informed Community Programme (PMB) for Kampong Sengkarai and Kampong Penabai, conducted the PMB programme from August 26-27.

The opening ceremony was held last Monday.

Yesterday, the programme continued with visits to agricultural development areas and a talk by an official of the Department of Agriculture and Agrifood at the Information Department, Jalan Airport Lama.

Participants were enlightened on the plantation and livestock industries. Agriculture Officers Muhammad Faa’id bin Haji Mohammad Kasim and Hasdattulamin bin Haji Mohd Tahir delivered the talk.

The PMB aims to disseminate official information on the policy and intention of the government through briefings, dialogues and visits to ensure the community – particularly from the grassroots level – understands, supports and appreciates the government’s efforts towards achieving the Brunei Vision 2035.

It also aims at enhancing knowledge of the participants and promoting the efforts of the government in improving the quality of life of the people, to strengthen their identity and uplift their spirit in continuing to support the country’s aspirations.
