The Institution of Surveyors, Engineers and Architects (PUJA) Brunei and its members conducted a strategic planning workshop on Wednesday which saw the attendance of nearly 60 members.
The workshop’s main objective was to get members’ feedback and recommendations on the short- and long-term strategic goals for the institution.
PUJA President Sr Haji Mohammad Hanafi bin Pehin Orang Kaya Digadong Seri Diraja Dato Laila Utama Haji Abdul Rahman’s opening remarks focussed on PUJA’s and its members’ appointments and valued contributions to key governmental and local educational institutions’ boards, working groups and committees such as Universiti Technologi Brunei, Institute of Brunei Technical Education (IBTE), Politeknik Brunei, Climate Change Working Group, Green Building Committees and a number of standards committees within a few ministries.
Ir Bahrin Mohammad facilitated the workshop, where an assessment on PUJA’s Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) were carried out. Members also gave feedback on how PUJA and its members can continue to support the Brunei Vision 2035 and other government initiatives and strategies. In particular, how the institution can continue to encourage and nurture the younger generation to choose the professions of quantity surveying, engineering and architecture as their careers of choice.
The workshop concluded by identifying six key strategic goals for the institution moving forward, which will see PUJA contributing to the development of the Sultanate and providing value to the professions and the professionals in construction and petrochemical industries.
