THE United States yesterday warned Brunei and other Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) members of failing to implement improved labour and environmental standards as this will lead to restrictions in receiving full benefits of the free trade deal. Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes said countries have to meet the baseline for labour rights and environmental protection to access lifted tariffs and open markets. “There’s a powerful incentive to countries in the TPP to meet those standards, because if they don’t, they won’t receive all benefits… That is what’s in it for everybody in the TPP that meet their end of the deal,” he told reporters in Sunnylands, Rancho Mirage. Under the labour chapter of the trade agreement, Brunei must undertake reforms to protect labour rights which include introducing a minimum wage. The US negotiated a separate side deal with Brunei, Malaysia and Vietnam, requiring the three governments to implement specific legislative and regulatory reforms as well as increase enforcement capacity as outlined in their respective consistency plans. TPP members must also allow mechanisms for the creation of a workers’ union, procedures for collective bargaining and strikes as well as prohibit discrimination. While the sultanate has yet to enact minimum wage laws, the government enables workers to anonymously report violations of labour laws that include follow-up and documentation procedures, another condition laid out in Brunei’s consistency plan. Last week, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Dato Paduka Hj Erywan Pehin Dato Pekerma Jaya Hj Mohd Yusof had said Brunei will revise several pieces of legislation, including minimum wage, labour and transparency laws before the sultanate ratifies the TPP. Rhodes believed the TPP empowers members across the Asia Pacific region to not only improve and enhance trade relations, but also uphold labour and environmental standards. “Over time, we think that can improve the standards in those countries and the region as whole, because there will be a benefit that comes to countries who are elevating their standards and improving their performances in these areas,” he said. The core international standards on labour rights, which all TPP members must demonstrate, are in line with the International Labour Organisation (ILO) regulations. At the plenary session of the Special US-ASEAN Leaders Summit, US President Barack Obama reiterated that Brunei, Malaysia, Singapore and Vietnam have committed to high labour and environmental standards in joining the TPP. He previously said the TPP will help countries deal with issues involving forced labour, child labour and discrimination against women, by using internationally recognised labour laws. “We know from our own history that when workers are able to come together and speak with one voice, it helps to boost wages which improves working conditions and raises living standards. This progress ripples out and benefits all workers,” he said last November. As one of the hallmarks of the TPP, Obama said hundreds of millions of workers will now be covered by higher, enforceable labour standards.

Davao International Airport October 21, 2016 President Rodrigo Roa Duterte reported to the public the fruits of his State Visits to Brunei Darussalam and the People’s Republic of China upon his late night arrival at the Davao International Aiport. “In both my visits, we reviewed the sum total of our relations and explored other areas of undertakings that opened doors for more meaningful engagements… A clear focus was directed more on economic cooperation and partnership to benefit our people,” he enthusistically said. In Brunei, President Rodrigo Duterte met Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah where they discussed ways of further deepening bilateral relations, particularly through economic cooperation. Brunei committed to help develop Mindanao’s Halal Industry, especially in certification and in capacity building. “Brunei and Mindanao can be twin hubs for the production and export of halal-certified products.” he said. Brunei and the Philippines agreed to intensify trade and investments and in working closely to further bolster the role of the BIMP-EAGA in growing our economies. He said that both countries also agreed to address connectivity issues through increased air and sea linkages to facilitate trade and commerce. The President extended his debt of gratitude to Sultan Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah for Brunei’s role as a partner for peace and secured his continued support for the Philippines’ efforts to pursue just and lasting peace in Mindanao. The war on drugs also extended its range for Brunei agreed to have a full cooperation against illegal drug trade. “To ensure progress in our discussions, we instructed officials of our respective Governments to immediately work together in transforming these agreed agenda into specific plans and actions,” said the President. In China, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte met with the leaders and they agreed to have full cooperation on trade, infrastructure and tourism, science and technology, health and finding peaceful means to solve the issues on maritime disputes. Philippines and China signed 13 agreements that will provide the framework to carry out intensified economic cooperation between both countries. “My talks have resulted in public financing agreements and private business deals valued at 24 billion US dollars,” said President Duterte. Meanwhile, the Department of Trade and Industry placed business to business Memorandum of Understandings at US$15.284 billion dollars on top of the nine billion US dollars in soft loans that Philippines have secured from various banks and is expected to generate about 2 million jobs for the Philippines. * * * Connect with RTVM Website: http://rtvm.gov.ph Facebook: www.facebook.com/presidentialcom Twitter: @RTVMalacanang Google+: google.com/+RTVMalacanang Instagram: @RTVMalacanang

http://virtual-bruneidarussalam.blogspot.com Brunei Share Information about Brunei Darussalam Brunei Share PMB Pulau Muara Besar Brunei Darussalam PMB PORT PROJECT Pulau Muara Besar (PMB) is an island strategically located in Brunei Bay next to Muara, Brunei's principal port, making it an ideal site for a deep sea container port. http://virtual-bruneidarussalam.blogspot.com Seeing the opportunity to meet the growing transportation needs of the country and the region, His Majesty's Government reserved a 955 hectare site on PMB in 2003. The potential extends much further. A manufacturing complex for major industries including an aluminium smelter and an export processing zone for halal food are among other medium to heavy industries within the plans for the PMB project. http://virtual-bruneidarussalam.blogspot.com A feasibility study concluded that the container port is viable for the following reasons: • The country's strategic location along the East-West maritime trade route • The proximity of the island to naturally very deep water required by mega-sized container ships • The growing trend in transhipment activities WHY INVEST IN PORT AND LOGISTICS AT PULAU MUARA BESAR? The BEDB is working towards the development of a world class deepwater container port and a dynamic logistics and manufacturing hub, to be located on a Greenfield island site known as Pulau Muara Besar (PMB) opposite the existing national port. PMB will be developed in phases, with the first phase of development being the construction of the deepwater container terminal facility that will be operated by Philippines-based International Container Terminal Services Incorporated (ICTSI). To complement the port's activities, there are plans to house logistics and warehousing services adjacent to the quay. With its unique settings and strategic location within the Borneo and BIMP-EAGA region, PMB will be developed to become the region's leading logistics hub for the movement of goods, as well as the gateway to access and serve millions of people in the BIMP-EAGA region. And the BEDB's plans for a multi-phased development of the island, integrating an economic development zone, a community zone and lifestyle zone, mark PMB as the next centre of opportunity for Brunei Darussalam. Basic infrastructure and utilities will be provided on the island to ensure that investors will be able to optimize their setting up time. Several investment incentives are also in place, which provide a conducive business environment such as tax exemptions for qualified industries. UPCOMING OPPORTUNITIES IN PORT AND LOGISTICS ON PULAU MUARA BESAR: • Port Construction ? Opportunity to participate in the construction of the port facilities at Pulau Muara Besar such as the container terminal, administration building and berthing area either through tenders or public private partnership. • Industrial Development ? Investors are welcome to set up their industries in manufacturing, logistics, aquaculture, Halal Food Processing, Shipyard, Oil Refinery and Storage on the island. • Infrastructure development ? Opportunities to participate in the infrastructure development such as construction of the bridge from mainland to PMB, roads and utilities such as power, water and sewerage through public private partnership or tenders. • Urban development ? Investment and construction opportunities in property development; residential and commercial buildings as well as business parks to create an integrated island and robust environment.

HIS Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah, the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam, consented to attend the Plenary Session of the United Nations Summit for the Adoption of the Post-2015 Agenda here yesterday. His Majesty, in the titah, said as the United Nations commemorates the 70th anniversary this year, it was very timely for the nations to reflect on their work since the Millennium Summit in 2000 and at the same time, look beyond 2015. His Majesty was encouraged by what had been achieved so far with the Millennium Development goals (MDGs). His Majesty added that the world has witnessed a decline in extreme poverty, an increase in access to primary education in developing regions, and improvements in child as well as maternal health. These showed that the target-oriented approach taken by the United Nations was both practical and feasible. His Majesty said that, at the same time, there has been different level of progress worldwide which means there is still much work to be done. His Majesty was therefore pleased that the Secretary-General had presented a new development agenda, covering targets built upon the MDGs and also new objectives to address gaps identified over the past 15 years. His Majesty felt reassured by the fact that the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are people-centred, inclusive and comprehensive. They focus on people, the planet, prosperity, peace, and partnership. His Majesty added that to achieve the goals, member states have to enhance individual and collective actions. His Majesty further added that they have to work in partnership through capacity building, learning from each other’s experiences, and sharing best practices. His Majesty also stated that each country has a challenging task ahead, but was optimistic that with firm commitment, they will be able to deliver. The monarch said it is for this reason that Brunei Darussalam always values cooperation with external partners both bilaterally and multilaterally. Brunei Darussalam looks forward to further strengthening its relations with various UN agencies, to support national development plans that are in line with the SDGs. Brunei Darussalam also attaches great importance to the work of ASEAN towards realising an ASEAN Community by 2015. His Majesty added that later this year, ASEAN will adopt its own Post-2015 Vision which will complement and support the global development agenda. His Majesty further stated that the task now is to focus on the transition from the MDGs to the SDGs, particularly for developing countries. The monarch also agreed with the areas highlighted in the document, which present specific challenges. His Majesty recognised that member states all have different priorities and approaches. The Sultan, however, saw a commonality in the commitment to place sustainable development at the core of this efforts to give people a better life. These include alleviating poverty, reducing inequalities, promoting quality education, addressing climate change, and achieving gender equality. His Majesty said the SDGs have to be meaningful for every man, woman and child. It is especially crucial youths to be included because they stand to inherit the new agenda. His Majesty was therefore pleased that the new agenda has rightly emphasised the importance of youths. Furthermore, it will provide a platform for empowerment through initiatives such as the provision of universal access to quality education. His Majesty also pointed out that investing in people is vital in the pursuit of the future the member states want, adding that they all aspire to create a better world for the peoples and future generations. His Majesty called on the member states to act boldly and urgently, saying the new agenda would provide a valuable roadmap to move forward. His Majesty stated that to succeed, peace and stability must be maintained. His Majesty concluded the titah by expressing support for the adoption of this Post-2015 Development Agenda, and is confident of its success. Accompanying His Majesty were Yang Berhormat Pehin Orang Kaya Laila Setia Dato Seri Setia Haji Abd Rahman bin Haji Ibrahim, Second Minister of Finance at the Prime Minister’s Office; Yang Berhormat Pehin Orang Kaya Pekerma Dewa Dato Seri Setia Lim Jock Seng, Second Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade; and His Excellency Dato Paduka Haji Abdul Ghafar bin Haji Ismail, Permanent Representative of Brunei Darussalam to the United Nations.
