The companies that will exhibit 'Made in Brunei' products are Mahkota Crystal, Bajoo Fashion House, ZA Handicraft and Muhammad Mustaqim Enterprise. These four handicraft companies of Brunei will receive the guidance for producing the latest Japanese trend products to boost the prospects of their products.

The project intends to develop cooperation through the transfer of design, knowledge and know-how from Japan to the respective countries.
