THE future construction of Universiti Islam Sultan Sharif Ali (UNISSA) campus and the National Youth Service Programme (PKBN) centre in the Temburong District is a step in further developing the district and its economy.

In an interview with The Brunei Times, the Temburong Assistant District Officer, Ajmin Hj Meludin, said that the future development could assist in further developing the district.

“The construction of UNISSA will be a key in the developments, especially in achieving His Majesty’s vision of a Zikir Nation,” he added.

Ajmin said that development could open up more opportunities for Temburong especially with the rise in population.

The number of residents could increase because of the UNISSA students and the PKBN participants residing in Temburong to pursue their further education and activities.

In result of the population increase, Ajmin believes that the district’s economy could also be developed.

“The economy could be developed through the promotion of the Temburong products (various local foods) and demand for housing,” he said.

Ajmin said that the development of service industry –such as hotels and homestays – could also be part of the future development.

“Also, with the bridge connecting Temburong to Brunei-Muara, connections between the four districts would be a lot stronger,” he added.

Ajmin is convinced that the current development may be a stepping stone for the future developments.

“UNISSA’s campus, the PKBN building and the Temburong bridge might just be the start in Temburong’s development, there could be more coming in the future,” he said.
