Brunei? Why a topical Country?
Tue Nov 4 01:17:14 CST 1997
To anyone out there I want to pose this question: Why was Brunei
Darussalam picked as a topical country when there is little infomormation
to find on the country? Could some answer this question.
Ps. I want to thank everybody who replied to my message about the Case
List page web site. I have that now updated and I'm back to normal.

Are you saying that the Clinton and His Majesty Paduka Seri Baginda
Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Muizzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al Marhum Sultan
Haji Omar Ali Saifuddien Sa'adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang
Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam don't have any substantial security
policies in the work?
As a country, they're having the same social problems as anyone else.
They want regional stability, like anyone else. They have a ministry of
defence and a ministry of foreign affairs. However, they're focusing a
lot of their attention on development and tech right now (like the ShTT
project). However, it's a pretty small place. Population around 300,000,
with one major city (Bandar Seri Begawan). It's a small Islamic
Sultanate, but it's also an ASEAN member (like the 6th to join).
Basically, they're an ASEAN nation, they're in Southeast Asia, and
there's no real reason to exclude them.
