Beyond Tariffs

Through the TPP, Canadian service suppliers will also benefit from improved market access commitments into Brunei in key sectors, such as environmental services and services related to mining.

With regard to temporary entry of business persons, new commitments will make it easier for Canadian businesses to temporarily move certain categories of business persons to Brunei. These new commitments include enhanced access for Canadian installers and servicers, investors, and certain highly-skilled professionals.

The TPP will also set a strong regional standard for intellectual property (IP) protection and enforcement, including a range of IP disciplines new to Brunei’s domestic regime.

Canada and Brunei will have government procurement commitments with each other for the first time. This includes robust rules promoting non-discrimination, transparency and procedural fairness, as well as new market access for Canadian suppliers to government procurement contracts.
