ROYAL Brunei Technical Services (RBTS) has once again been awarded by the Ministry of Defence Brunei Darussalam (MINDEF) to co-organise the fourth Brunei Darussalam International Defence Exhibition, BRIDEX 2013.

The fourth BRIDEX will be taking place in the same year with the ASEAN Defence Minister's Meeting (ADMM) Plus which has been planned from October 8 to 12 in 2013.

RBTS together with MINDEF's executive delegations at the Defence Services Asia (DSA) exhibition in Kuala Lumpur received continuous interest on BRIDEX 2013.

Among the guest of honours that attended and visited the BRIDEX booth in DSA was the Deputy Minister of Defence Brunei Darussalam, Dato Paduka Hj Mustappa Hj Sirat, who sits on the board of directors of RBTS as the Chairman. He also delivered a keynote speech during the DSA 2012 event entitled 'Transpacific Partnership Program (TPP): Challenges to Defence Offset Program'.

According to Hjh Rosmawati Hj Manaf, RBTS Acting Chief Executive and Exhibition Director for BRIDEX 2013, coordinating next year's exhibition around the ADMM would be a new and exciting challenge for RBTS.

Nonetheless, she commented, "We are humbled by MINDEF's confidence in us and are very thankful to have the opportunity to organise BRIDEX again".

RBTS has successfully coordinated and co-organised two BRIDEX events since 2009 and 2011.

To promote BRIDEX 2013, RBTS has started its active marketing approach by participating and setting up booth in the DSA 2012 exhibition that took place in Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC), Kuala Lumpur. The Brunei Times
