The one-hour meeting aimed to explore prospects of collaboration between UBD and MPRT as well as to understand priority areas identified by the Ministry in boosting the economic outlook of Brunei. The discussions focused on the possibility of the current UBD students who joined the entrepreneurship programme at the UBD Entrepreneurship Village to utilise the priority areas listed by MPRT as a guide for business ideas. In doing so, not only the business ideas based on the priority areas would benefit the students, most importantly, the country as a whole.
