“The exhibition, which will take place at Times Square Mall on April 5th, is an initiative of the French Embassy, aiming at showcasing some of the main aspects of France’s economic and cultural presence in Brunei Darussalam. First of all, the aim is to show the interest of French groups in the Sultanate and the potential it offers for the reinforcement of bilateral business, as well as the trust they place in the vibrant future of Brunei Darussalam. The Exhibition also aims at developing a better awareness of the general public about what France has to offer.” – His Excellency Jean Yves Berthault, Ambassador of France in Brunei Darussalam.
Videos will display the marvelous landscape and cultural heritage of France, with the scope of encouraging tourism (Air France will offer two airplane tickets for the lucky draw).
Students will be informed of possibilities of studying in France, the third global destination for foreign students (Campus France, based in Singapore).
France would like to encourage the development of cooperation in vocational studies, in order to respond to the VISION 2035 of the Sultanate, as well as to its determination in favouring economic diversification. The first cooperation of this kind, which will start its activities next month, will be shown with Institut de Soudure (welding) having demos, and explaining to potential students the benefits of such careers.
Language study will occupy its due place, with the participation of Alliance Francaise.
