For the last 12 months period, we did participated in various of sporting events regionally as well as in the world competitions. The sweet moment will be also when we successfully hosting some great and big sporting events. I personally think that through these achievements, our country has re-established as one of the most pre-eminent and established small nations of the world.

In 2008 Brunei Darussalam was known regionally, and indeed across the world, through sporting event participations. Brunei Darussalam is so small that even the slightest of gains can be monumental. We shall see truly mighty gains this coming year.
