Indonesia, Brunei seek to improve transport links, says ambassador

Indonesia and Brunei Darussalam are exploring direct shipping between the two nations, which allows Indonesian products to be sold and delivered to the Sultanate cheaper and faster, said Ambassador of Indonesia to Brunei Darussalam Dr Sujatmiko on Saturday.

“It will facilitate the transport of products from Indonesia to Brunei Darussalam and vice versa. We have tried several times to begin shipping between our two countries without going through a third country,“ he said on the sidelines of a Hari Raya gathering, adding that Brunei Darussalam and Indonesia have close economic and trade ties while Indonesian products are commonly found in the Sultanate.
