Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, MSMEs comprise 97.2 per cent of active enterprises in Brunei Darussalam, making the sector important in the country's economic landscape. Apart from providing employment opportunities, the sector also plays a vital role in shaping the nation's economic development, aside from supplying goods and services as well as encouraging competition and stability in the market. The Minister at the Prime Minister's Office and Second Minister of Finance and Economy underlined the matter at the launching of the Brunei MSME Festival 2023 in BRIDEX, Jerudong.
