Brunei king praises people’s efforts to control Covid-19

BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN: His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam expressed pleasure that Bruneians are complying with the rules and regulations amid the Covid-19 (coronavirus) outbreak.

Brunei has reported that that it has no confirmed Covid-19 for the last 18 days with the national tally of cases standing at 141.

Only three active cases are still receiving treatment at the National Isolation Centre.

And more good news for the country is when Hengyi Industries Sdn Bhd, a China-Brunei joint venture, announced that its first supply of transportation fuels from Hengyi to its Brunei selling partner, marking the start of its supply of refined fuel products to Brunei's domestic market has been successful.

Three Brunei cabinet ministers including Minister at the Prime Minister's Office and Second Minister of Finance and Economy Haji Mohd Amin Liew, Minister of Development Haji Suhaimi and Minister of Energy Haji Mat Suny and Chinese Ambassador to Brunei Yu Hong last week attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officiate Hengyi's first supply of refined fuels (gasoline, diesel and jet fuel).

As part of Hengyi's commercial agreement with Brunei Shell Marketing (BSM) Company Sdn Bhd signed in September 2019, Hengyi will supply refined fuel products to BSM for domestic market distribution, which signifies a new milestone for the country's downstream industry with the extension of the domestic oil and gas value chain.

The refinery is also expected to reduce Brunei's dependency on imported fuel products while also generating products for export. - Xinhua/Asian News Network
