Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of REXPO Ahmad Rezal Chan said it is the 14th edition of the Yes2Malaysia in Brunei Darussalam, which is normally held twice a year in February and August.

He said, “There continues to be a good demand for Malaysia Education in Brunei where you see a lot of Bruneians going to Malaysia.

“You also see Malaysians residing here (in Brunei) who want to know about the options back home for them or their children.”

The REXPO CEO added that the people tend to choose to study in Malaysia due to its affordability and quality of education, as well as proximity and cultural similarities.

The fair will be held in Seria at Pusat Insani tomorrow.
