Brunei Darussalam

Infrastructure procurement: Infrastructure is financed, owned, managed and operated for the most part by public authorities, civil service departments, wholly-owned government companies, and in one case, a statutory authority.

PPI projects: Private sector involvement in the operations and financing of the infrastructure is limited in Brunei Darussalam. Reasons include the Government’s reluctance to forgo control of key national resources, the abundance of public funds and the limited scale of the Brunei market.
