Establishing a manufacturing plant to produce halal medicines

Yang Berhormat Dato Paduka Awang Haji Idris, enquired if the joint-venture between the Ministry of Finance and the Canadian Pharmaceutical Company, VIVA, has gone into operation? Yang Berhormat welcomed efforts toward establishing a manufacturing plant to produce halal medicines, vitamins and nutritional supplement.

The Minister of Health, Yang Berhormat Pehin Orang Kaya Johan Pahlawan Dato Seri Setia Awang Haji Adanan, invited the Second Minister of Finance at the Prime Minister's Office to respond to the matter.

Yang Berhormat Pehin Orang Kaya Laila Setia Dato Seri Setia Awang Haji Abdul Rahman, said the manufacturing 'plant' sector to produce medicines is an area identified as having potential to be developed and it is hoped it would further enhance the government's revenue especially in the non-oil and gas sector. Yang Berhormat said the establishment of VIVA Pharmacy Sendirian Berhad or Viva Brunei, constitutes a project that can be implemented under the Brunei auspices. Viva Pharmaceutical Incorporated Canada, the Minister said, was established in 1984 in Canada and produces pharmaceutical and natural health products. The Company aspires to become the leading supplier in halal certified medicines, vitamins and nutritional supplement not only for the local market but also regional and middle east markets.
