MEMBERS of the Kuala Belait and Seria Municipal Board for 2015 yesterday welcomed the appointment of Brunei Shell Petroleum's Deputy Managing Director Hj Kamaluddin Hj Bungsu to the board.

Chairman of the Kuala Belait and Seria Municipal Board Hj Ali Matyassin said that Hj Kamaluddin would replace the previous Deputy Managing Director of BSP Hj Salleh Bostaman Hj Zainal Abidin. No other changes have been made to the 16-member board. The Chairman, in his address at a get-together ceremony yesterday, encouraged 2015’s board members to use their diverse backgrounds and knowledge to assist the board in making substantial and strategic decisions.

“His Majesty Sultan Hj Hassanal Bolkiah Mui’zzaddin Waddaulah, the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam has reminded that we need to retain our focus on strategic issues, not just routine administrative matters,” he said at Kuala Belait’s Dewan Persidangan.

He said that areas under the jurisdiction of the board also need to be continuously developed with the goal of offering the best service possible to the residents of Belait.

“I hope that the board’s members keep a close eye to all complaints from the public and respond quickly and effectively to resolve any issues or development under the jurisdiction of the board,” he added.

During yesterday’s get together ceremony, attended by 100 board employees, the Chairman presented plaques to board members from the year prior.
