    1st BIMP-EAGA Youth Exchange Homestay Programme

    Brunei Darussalam recently hosted the 1st BIMP-EAGA (Brunei Darussalam-Indonesia-Malaysia-Philippines East ASEAN Growth Area) Youth Exchange Programme. The Youth Exchange Programme was officiated on the 24th November 2008.

    Fifteen male and 18 female participants from Sabah, Papua, South Sulawesi, Labuan and South Kalimantan, with Brunei Darussalam having the largest number of participants, were involved in the exchange programme.

    As part of the Youth Exchange Programme, the Department of Youth and Sports as organisers, invited Bersatu to arrange a homestay programme for the youths.

    The Homestay Matching Ceremony took place at the Pusat Belia (Youth Centre) in Bandar Seri Begawan on Friday 28th November. The youths stayed with host families for 3 days.

    Here are some pictures taken by Baim '01 from the Homestay Matching Ceremony.

    BIMP-EAGA was launched in 1994 as a cooperation initiative by Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines, all of which are member-countries of the regional Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). The objective behind the creation of BIMP-EAGA is to accelerate economic development in the four countries' “focus areas” which, although geographically distant from their national capitals, are in strategic proximity to each other, in one of the world’s most resource-rich regions.
    It comprises the following focus areas: the entire sultanate of Brunei Darussalam; the provinces of Kalimantan, Sulawesi, Maluku, and Irian Jaya in Indonesia; the states of Sabah and Sarawak, and the federal territory of Labuan in Malaysia; and the island of Mindanao and the province of Palawan in the Philippines.

    Sayonara Nippon Maru!

    The SSEAYP Country Programme in Brunei Darussalam for 2008 ended on Sunday 9th November. The PYs returned from their homestay programme around noon, an open ship for the host families which was then followed by a farewell ceremony for the ship. The Guest of Honour was the Permanent Secretary from the Ministry of Culture Youth and Sports, YM Dato Paduka Haji Jemat bin Ampal.
