The Minister of Energy, Manpower and Industry (MEMI) expressed optimism over the future of the job market for the locals as he looked further into the development of businesses at the Anggerek Desa Technology Park.

On the sidelines of his working visit to the park today, Yang Berhormat Dato Seri Setia Dr Hj Mat Suny Hj Mohd Hussein was delighted to have learned that most businesses at the area are predominantly operated by locals.

“This is actually a golden opportunity for young locals to join arms and create strong business foundations that could last for many years to come,” he said.

“Some of these businesses may be small now, but with due diligence, they will definitely be able to grow and become more stable and sustainable. So I wish you all the best with all your ventures, and keep up the good work,” the minister added.

Anggerek Desa Technology Park hosts a number of buildings that house some of Brunei’s emerging start ups including The Bruneian itself, an online business news outlet and a sister company of local creative firm Mixmediaworx (MMW).
