BIBD Strengthened its Collaboration with Key Government Ministries

August 31st, 2018 – BIBD yesterday strengthened its collaboration with key government ministries in efforts to support Brunei Darussalam’s Wawasan 2035 to develop welleducated and highly-skilled individuals with a Temburong educational trip to schools in Sekolah Rendah Selapon, Sekolah Rendah Selangan and Sekolah Arab Temburong

The existing collaborations are focused to accomplish the national strategy to prepare Brunei’s youth for an increasingly competitive and knowledge-based future. BIBD also took the opportunity to present educational materials to all three schools to supplement the development of their education.

The BIBD travelling party, which included senior management personnel, members of its Corporate Social Responsibility team along with BIBD ALAF volunteers, also extended their visit by engaging the local community to identify other opportunities for improvement to support the development and educational needs of its community.

The visit is also part of BIBD’s effort to further strengthen its relationships with students from the BIBD ALAF Programme, another key collaboration with the Bruneian government, specifically the education arms of the Ministry of Education (MoE) and the Ministry of Religious Affairs (MoRA). Concurrently, the BIBD party also took time to visit BIBD ALAF programme students, their families at their homes along with engagements with ALAF teachers from MoE and MoRa. This holistic approach allows BIBD to ensure the educational progress of ALAF students.

Aimed at promoting better financial management skills in Brunei Darussalam and to instil better financial habits and decision-making skills, BIBD Aspirasi is also part of BIBD’s efforts to add value to the social and economic well-being of the country as in line with His Majesty The Sultan’s Titah calling for prudence in spending and the practice of thrift as they contribute the country’s stability and prosperity as well as economic survival, as well as saving through financial planning for future needs.

Hj Mohammad Yusri bin Hj Wahsalfelah, BIBD Head of Government Relations and Special Projects, commented, “It is essential that we support the development of education for our youth as future leaders to create a robust economy towards a sustainable society. This direct engagement approach allows us to better understand their living conditions and extend the right support.

“On behalf of BIBD, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our partners from the public and private sector on our continued collaborations to further fortify the future of Brunei Darussalam”.
