Indonesian Community


Indonesians have played an important role in helping build the foundation for manpower that Brunei needed to develop its own industry and economy.

The Indonesian community has made their mark on Brunei through various means — from businessmen and religious teachers to tradesmen and domestic helpers. All of them have been integral to the development of Bruneian society.

The 60,000 strong Indonesian community also brought over elements of Indonesian culture that we now think of as everyday Bruneian life — from ayam penyet to cendol, from batik to dangdut.
