"We would like to do our part in contributing to the local environment by carrying out this tree planting project," said Chen.
Hengyi Industries is a joint venture between China's Zhejiang Hengyi Group and Damai Holdings, a wholly-owned subsidiary under Brunei government's Strategic Development Capital Fund, with the two owning 70 per cent and 30 per cent respectively.
According to Chen, during a tree-planting event held recently, 500 trees were planted across 0.5 hectares of land.
"May the trees we plant serve as a reminder of our commitment towards a sustainable future and to inspire everyone to protect and preserve the environment," he said.
