His Majesty urges acceleration in digital transformation

His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam in a titah underscored the need to accelerate the country’s digital transformation as it stages recovery from the economic impact of COVID-19.

In a titah broadcast on Radio Televisyen Brunei (RTB) last night to mark the 38th National Day, His Majesty said that efforts towards economic recovery must be made with caution including easing restrictions that have limited economic activities and pushed the public and the private sector to incorporate information technology into their everyday lives.

Digital transformation, the monarch said, must be accelerated to supplement the new normal.
