Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) in Brunei Darussalam representative Andrew Lee, together with 40 participants comprising TECO staff, Taiwan Business Association of Brunei Darussalam members and friends, collected 50 bags of trash during a clean-up at Muara Beach on the first day of 2022.
Co-organised by the association and BLIA Sdn Bhd, the event demonstrated the joint efforts towards a sustainable future by contributing to the restoration of the coastal ecosystem, raising awareness on the importance of recycling and maintaining the beauty and cleanliness of beaches in the Sultanate.
Lee praised the association and BLIA for the collective efforts in launching beach clean-ups and other cleaning campaigns over the years. He also thanked the participants for playing their part in supporting the community and ensuring Brunei’s coastline remains free of waste.
The office will continue to participate in similar activities in the future, he said.
