BRUNEI - Foreign and local investors can now have access to online information on fisheries licences, import and export and procedures involved in establishing aquaculture industries through the new online e-Fisheries service launched yesterday at the Ministry of Industry and Primary Resources.

Through this "single window" provided by the Fisheries Department, fisheries entrepreneurs, both local and foreign investors and the public can access services easily, facilitate their investments and the running of their businesses that can benefit the country, said MIPR's Permanent Secretary, Dato Paduka Hj Mohd Hamid Hj Mohd Jaafar.

This will allow users to have access to such details anytime, save time by avoiding long queues and conduct their business in the comfort of their homes without additional costs, said the permanent secretary.

Dato Paduka Haji Mohd Hamid added the eFisheries service, valued at $248,000, is hoped to facilitate the Department's Fisheries vision of a 'Sustainable and Competitive Fisheries Contributing Towards A Diversified Economy' through enabling fisheries ventures by both local and foreign investors.
