Brunei, officially the State of Brunei, Abode of Peace is a country located on the north coast of the island of Borneo, in Southeast Asia. Apart from its coastline with the South China Sea it is completely surrounded by the state of Sarawak, Malaysia, and in fact it is separated into two parts by Limbang, which is part of Sarawak.  Brunei gained its independence from Great Britain in 1984.

Dialects and Languages

Malay is the official language of Brunei, although an important minority speak Chinese languages (Min Nan, Mandarin, Min Dong, Yue, Hakka). The local variety of Malay (Kedayan or Bukit Malay) are spoken natively by two thirds of the population.  The most important aboriginal languages are Iban, and two languages called Tutong.  English as well is an important language, since there are a large number of English and Australians living in Brunei. 

Business Development

Crude Oil and petroleum are the main exports of Brunei, although the nation still relys heavily on agriculture and small mining industries as well.  The government has created new economic reform policies in order to invite foreign investment into the nation as well.  Brunei works closely with nations in their area as well, such as Australia, New Guniea, New Zealand and China.

Future Development

In the future, Brunei Darussalam looks to contiue to expand its economy and infrastructure as well, through a combination of government policies and direct foreign investment as well.  Brunei will also look to continue to be an important economic force in the South East Asian area and will strive to maintain and improve upon the success they have already achieved for their prosperous nation.
