Brunei’s Consumer Fair set for June-July

Brunei’s D'Sunlit Sdn Bhd has invited interested Cambodians to the 27th Consumer Fair, set to be held from June 28 to July 2, at the International Convention Centre of ASEAN’s second smallest country, according to the Ministry of Commerce.

Every year, the advertising and event management company’s organising committee offers booths at relatively low prices for traders to promote Cambodian products, and provides them a chance to meet potential business partners and expand their market presence in Brunei.

Speaking in a statement, the ministry hailed Brunei as a “good” ASEAN market and gathering place for big regional and international businesses.

The ministry invited anyone interested in attending the event or otherwise wish to look for Bruneian business partners to contact either the Department of Exhibition Affairs or General Directorate of Trade Promotion before February 24.

The Kingdom’s exports of “cereals” – corresponding to Chapter 10 of the Harmonised System (HS) – accounted for more than 99.9 per cent of the Cambodia-Brunei goods trade in 2021, at $5.75 million, down by over 53 per cent from $12.33 million in 2020, according to Trading Economics.

Cambodian imports from Brunei clocked in at a mere $0.0032 million in 2021, a far cry from the $1.009 million logged in 2017, the only annual figure in the 2011-2021 period exceeding $12,500, figures on the statistics website indicate.
