Deputy Minister of Finance and Chairman of the Brunei Economic Development Board Yang Mulia Dato Paduka Dr Awang Haji Mohd Amin Liew bin Abdullah yesterday visited Hengyi’s Oil Refinery & Cracker Plant site at Pulau Muara Besar (PMB). A partnership between Damai Holdings Limited and Hengyi, the venture is worth more than USD4 billion, and will support around 800 jobs.

Progress aside, we must not, at all cost compromise on safety and standards at all times” Also present accompanying the Deputy Minister were the Deputy Permanent Secretaries at the Ministry of Finance Hj Khairuddin bin Hj Abdul Hamid and Hj Abu Bakar bin Hj Ibrahim. The entourage was briefed on the progress of the project and taken on a site tour of the island by Hengyi’s senior officials.
