Borneo Bulletin Yearbook 2017

Brunei Darussalam is aiming to transform and diversify the economy to

ensure its resilience and sustainability. The Borneo Bulletin Yearbook (BBYB)

2017 will highlight the initiatives that are geared towards empowering the

private sector, particularly the non-oil and gas sector, to play a bigger role

in driving the growth and diversification of the economy.

The content will feature key information about Brunei with special focus

on economy, infrastructure development, trade, primary resources and

tourism. One of the topics is entrepreneurship development that is expected

to complement the government’s role in creating jobs and business

opportunities.

BBYB 2017 will also feature the emergence of DARe (Darussalam

Enterprise), a statutory body that was established to nurture and support

local enterprises from start-up to growth. DARe is also active in providing

platforms to improve the business ecosystem in Brunei.

This comprehensive guide will highlight insights into the nation’s direction

for the economy. Topics will include initiatives to improve the ease of

doing business, as well as infrastructure, training and finance to assist

entrepreneurs to start and grow their businesses and industries.

Top executives from the business sector, including banking and finance,

will provide their views on the new economic direction. BBYB 2017 will

also feature write-ups on companies that have grown under the business and

industrial ecosystem that is nurtured by the relevant authorities.

Published yearly since 1993, BBYB will continue to provide the latest

updates on Brunei’s economy, future development plans, investment

opportunities, latest names and designation of key government personnel,

and fast facts on Brunei (population, labour, import/export and GDP growth)

for years to come.
