(MoFAT) and Florence Chong, Assistant Director for International
Organizations at MoFAT and point of contact for the Proliferation
Security Initiative. Halimah and Chong welcomed the briefing,
seeing the GMP as a useful collective label to apply to disparate

would welcome further information as the USG fleshes out this
concept and would review how Brunei could best participate in
GMP-branded initiatives.
