'We are planning to do so (export chicken) because of the potential that Brunei has," said a source from the Agriculture Department. "We are now in negotiations with Singapore on how to start exporting. However, we must comply with all Singapore requirements first, such as their biosecurity measures, legislation and so on."

Of the total consumption of chicken in Brunei, domestic production accounted for only 32 per cent in 1992, but this soared to 61 per cent in 1997 and 76 per cent in 1998, according to official government statistics.

In 2006, local poultry farmers grabbed 95.6 per cent of the domestic market for chicken products.
