The modified handicrafts of Brunei, which are manufactured according to the latest trend in the Japanese market, are for the first time set to make huge wave on the International level in the Furniture Fair to be held in Tokyo during Dec 2 and Dec 4.

The products to be displayed in the fair will come from Brunei's local companies, which will be participating in the fair under a project of the Japan-Brunei Economic Partnership Agreement.

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.

Two experts have been appointed, to guide these local companies, with the assistance of the Ministry of Industry and Primary Resources and Japan External Trade Organization.

Mr. Yoshio Namura, President of Need' K Co Ltd, specializing in textile and fashion items and Mr Kohei Takata, CEO of Essence Company specializing in glassware products have been visiting Brunei Darussalam for the past two years to facilitate the product development for the companies.

The handmade products are being manufactured, with the advice of Mr. Kohei Takata, as per the standard and taste of Japanese market to display in Furniture Fair in this December and will try to attract the high end buyers of these goods.

Since two years, the Brunei handicraft products have been developed and promoted globally. Under the above project, some of the Asian countries such as Laos, Thailand and Indonesia have got success in breaking into Japanese market.

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