IOPN is launched with a Mission to help its members develop effective relationships and foster collaboration with each other and with other professionals in Brunei, India and globally. The network will support activities including sharing of best practices, exploring ideas, collaborations on key projects and educational developments.

In the long run, the platform aims to create opportunities for these professionals to support the vision of Brunei Wawasan 2035 – Building a knowledge-based economy.
