Brunei’s economy needs to become less reliant on the oil and gas sectors, which accounted for more than 60% of GDP and 95% of total exports in 2010. The development of other high-value-added manufacturing and services sectors is a key priority. The Tenth National Development Plan is based on six strategic development thrusts. Three of these are particularly important to the goal of creating a more diversified economy: an environment conducive to business; an educated and highly skilled population; and a progressive, productive economy based on knowledge and innovation.
