Minister encourages foreigners to learn Malay

With language as a tool of cultural expression, language skills are key to understand the culture of a nation. Therefore, a good command of Malay Language among the Chinese community in the country will further enhance their understanding of the values, customs and culture of the Malays in Brunei Darussalam. This was highlighted by Minister of Home Affairs Pehin Orang Kaya Seri Kerna Dato Seri Setia (Dr) Haji Awang Abu Bakar bin Haji Apong at the 2nd National Malay Language Oratory Competition at Dewan Raya in Radio Television Brunei on Saturday.
