A DELEGATION from the Ministry of Home Affairs (MoHA) made a working visit to the Belait District on March 5 to take a closer look at its various ‘One Village, One Product’ (1K1P) products and gain a better understanding of the various locations and sites under the jurisdiction of the Belait District Office.
The visit was made so that the MoHA can identify locations in the district – notably rural areas – that require further development, such as infrastructure and other public amenities, as part of efforts to improve the wellbeing of the residents.
Permanent Secretary (Municipal and District) at the MoHA Salminan bin Haji Burut led the group.
Deputy Permanent Secretary (Municipal and District) at the MoHA Abdul Walid bin Haji Matassan and a number of senior officers and officers from the ministry were part of the group.
The delegation was officially welcomed to the district by Acting Belait District Officer Ridzuan bin Haji Ahmad alongside officers from the Belait District Office, as well as officers from government agencies and departments based in the Belait District.
The delegation first stopped by the Belait District Office where they were briefed on the various aspects of the district, before touring the building and the Kuala Belait and Seria Municipal Board located on Jalan McKerron.
The group next visited the Activity Centre of the Village Consultative Council of Kampong Mumong (MPK Mumong). They viewed an exhibition showcasing 1K1P products produced by the Women’s Bureau of MPK Mumong. Examples of the products include chilli sauce, Rosella (Hibiscus) juice, kueh bahulu and marble cake.
The delegation also visited Tamu Sungai Bera and the multi-purpose hall in Kampong Labi, where they were made aware of the various public amenities and infrastructure provided for the residents in the area.
