As part of BIBD’s efforts to support the de-cashing of the economy with seamless transactions, BIBD has already introduced digital conveniences such as BIBD Quickpay for QR code payments, BIBD vCard or Virtual Mastercard, its Mastercard Contactless and Visa payWave under its BIBD NEXGEN platform.

At the same time, BIBD is keen to partner with local institutions to create alliances to improve access and create more opportunities for the ease of doing business in Brunei Darussalam, while improving the infrastructure for a faster and more secure digital economy. Its first alliance came earlier in the year by powering Progresif Pay, Progresif’s digital payment solution.

Head of Retail Banking, Hjh Nurul Akmar Hj Md Jaafar demonstrating BIBD Quickpay to the media. The feature will be made available to BIBD mobile users in the new year.

As the demand for ease of payments from customers and merchants increase as a reflection of Brunei Darussalam’s smart society with among the highest social media penetration and mobile phone penetration, BIBD will always be on the lookout for digital innovations to complement its suite of digital payment solutions. Not far from the horizon, BIBD will be introducing the latest version of its BIBD NEXGEN Mobile app which will include its latest payment convenience: the BIBD NEXGEN Wallet.

BIBD, leading this digital initiative will be open to other wallet and payment solutions such as Apple Pay and Google Pay, and would gauge our further investments within this based on the public’s adoption to the cashless economy and smart nation initiative.

Paying made easy by BIBD NEXGEN Wallet

A first for Brunei Darussalam, the BIBD NEXGEN Wallet will allow BIBD customers to perform NFC (Near Field Communication) payments using their NFC supported android devices at merchants via the BIBD NEXGEN Mobile application.

This latest technological addition creates a fast and secure alternative to cash payments as the supporting technology and security makes payments seamless, with the added benefit of allowing payments to be made offline (without access to the internet). This can be used at any contactless-enabled terminal at more than thirty million merchants worldwide.

BIBD yesterday strengthened its collaboration with key government ministries in efforts to support Brunei Darussalam’s Wawasan 2035 to develop well- educated and highly-skilled individuals with a Temburong educational trip to schools in Sekolah Rendah Selapon, Sekolah Rendah Selangan and Sekolah Arab Temburong.

The existing collaborations are focused to accomplish the national strategy to prepare Brunei’s youth for an increasingly competitive and knowledge-based future. BIBD also took the opportunity to present educational materials to all three schools to supplement the development of their education.

The BIBD travelling party, which included senior management personnel, members of its Corporate Social Responsibility team along with BIBD ALAF volunteers, also extended their visit by engaging the local community to identify other opportunities for improvement to support the development and educational needs of its community.

The visit is also part of BIBD’s effort to further strengthen its relationships with students from the BIBD ALAF Programme, another key collaboration with the Bruneian government, specifically the education arms of the Ministry of Education (MoE) and the Ministry of Religious Affairs (MoRA). Concurrently, the BIBD party also took time to visit BIBD ALAF programme students, their families at their homes along with engagements with ALAF teachers from MoE and MoRa. This holistic approach allows BIBD to ensure the educational progress of ALAF students.

Hj Mohammad Yusri bin Hj Wahsalfelah, BIBD Head of Government Relations and Special Projects, commented, “It is essential that we support the development of education for our youth as future leaders to create a robust economy towards a sustainable society. This direct engagement approach allows us to better understand their living conditions and extend the right support. “On behalf of BIBD, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our partners from the public and private sector on our continued collaborations to further fortify the future of Brunei Darussalam”.

About The ALAF Programme

The BIBD ALAF (Advocating Life-Long Learning for An Aspiring Future) programme currently supports the development of more than one hundred and seventy students. The programme is kept sustainable by collaborated efforts from both public and private efforts which include BIBD’s own charity expeditions for ALAF, generous contributions from corporate agencies as well as members of the general public.

How can the public support the ALAF Programme

Members of the public wishing to contribute into the BIBD ALAF Programme fund may do so with a minimum donation of B$1.01 into the BIBD ALAF account at 1018181811 via BIBD channels such as the BIBD Online website, BIBD Mobile app, BIBD ATM and CDMs, and BIBD branch counters. The public can also set up a BIBD Standing Instruction to ensure a monthly donation into the ALAF fund. As an added option, BIBD account holders can also use their accumulated BIBD Hadiah Points for cash conversion into contributions into the ALAF fund account.

His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ’Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, The Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam, and His Excellency Mr. Lee Hsien Loong, Prime Minister of Singapore jointly launched new $50 notes in conjunction with the 50th Anniversary of the Currency Interchangeability Agreement between Brunei Darussalam and Singapore today, 12 Syawal 1438 corresponding to 5 July 2017, in a ceremony held at the Istana, Singapore.

The limited edition $50 polymer notes with the theme “Flourishing Growth” are issued by both Autoriti Monetari Brunei Darussalam (AMBD) and Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).

The Brunei Darussalam and Singapore $50 commemorative notes feature the same design elements and layout and is predominantly gold in colour to signify the golden jubilee. The 50th Anniversary logo of the Currency Interchangeability Agreement is a key feature on the front of the note. It shows a unifying flower motif comprising of a prominent flower found in Brunei Darussalam and Singapore’s national flower, the Simpur and the Vanda Miss Joaquim respectively, in full bloom. This and the radiating flower petals symbolises the flourishing growth friendship between the two nations.

A unique element in the note is the see-through, colour-shifting window security feature that depicts Brunei Darussalam’s Istana Nurul Iman and Singapore’s Istana. A portrait of His Majesty Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam is shown on the Brunei Darussalam note, while the Singapore note features a portrait of Singapore’s first President, Mr Yusof bin Ishak.

The back design of the note portrays the close collaboration between Brunei Darussalam and Singapore in the areas of defence, education and tourism.
