A JOINT stakeholder engagement was facilitated by DARe (Darussalam Enterprise) for its industrial tenants at Sungai Liang Industrial Park (SPARK) yesterday to shed more light on the progress and upcoming works in the industrial area.

The tenants include Brunei Methanol Company Sdn Bhd (BMC), Brunei Fertilizer Industries Sdn Bhd (BFI) and Advanced Hydrogen Energy Chain Association for Technology Development (AHEAD).

DARe arranged the briefing as part of its role to provide and manage the industrial parks in the country and to cater to the development of businesses and economy of Brunei Darussalam.

According to DARe, the tenants are in the midst of upgrading and implementing new facilities that will generate major economic spin-offs through downstream oil and gas activities.

The session started with a presentation by DARe, represented by Senior Manager of Industrial Site Management Abdullah bin Nawi. It followed with presentations by tenants providing updates on their upcoming projects.
