French companies will be engaging in face-to-face talks with two dozen local companies to explore possible joint ventures and business opportunities today at The Empire Hotel & Country Club.
The business-to-business meeting will involve 13 French companies in a diverse range of fields, from infrastructure to human resource development. The meeting is also done in partnership with Total in Brunei.
In an interview with The Brunei Times, The Trade Commissioner for Singapore and Brunei, Frederic Rossi, explained that they believe there is still a lot of space in the Brunei oil and gas market. Rossi believes that Brunei is at the preliminary stage of a new period of development in the oil and gas industry.
“There were big developments up to last year,” he said. “Starting next year, exports will start to rise and there will be new exploration to come.”
