The purpose of the cordial visit was to pay a courtesy call on Their Majesties in conjunction with the Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebrations.
The Sultanate, via The Brunei Investment Agency, has always been keen on investments in Sabah and it is involved in an integrated livestock project in the Keningau region.
The new Parti Warisan Sabah government, headed by Shafie, is keen to attract investments from foreign companies, including those from Brunei, as it seeks to speed business ventures that would provide employment opportunities.
