PHILRICE, Nueva Ecija—A bilateral agreement between the Philippines and Brunei under the Brunei Darussalam-Philippines Agricultural Cooperation Project (Brunei-RP ACP) is expected to increase the exchange of technological expertise and trade of agricultural products between the two countries, among other mutual benefits.

At a recent bilateral meeting, the status of a rice planting project in Wasan was assessed, possible agribusiness ventures in Mindanao assessed, and the possibility of using Brunei’s halal brand on Philippine products explored.

The Brunei-RP ACP is an initiative between Brunei’s Ministry of Industry and Primary Resources (MIPR) and its Department of Agriculture (DA), and the Philippines’ own DA through the DA-Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice).   It aims to increase Brunei’s 3.15 percent rice self-sufficiency level to 20 percent by 2010. 

His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei inaugurated the first harvest of Brunei’s “Laila padi” at Wasan on August 3.
