“It is important that each

of the planned event is being

implemented in a proper manner

that does not fall outside the time

limits and expenditure,” said His

Royal Highness in a sabda yesterday,

during the second meeting of the

Executive Committee for the Golden

Jubilee celebrations at the Prime

Minister’s Office in the capital.

His Royal Highness also said that

successive discussions would focus

more on implementation planning

by each sectoral committee for the

Golden Jubilee celebrations.

“This includes any difficulties

or

problems

faced

by

each

sectoral committee, which need

to be addressed at the executive

committee level,” said His Royal

Highness.

His Royal Highness also pointed

out the immediate need for an

effective communications strategy,

in order to draw more involvement

from all sections of society,

particularly youths.

“The use of technology and

electronic media such as application

downloads should be the main

choice in the propagation strategy,”

said His Royal Highness.

“I am pleased to note that every

sectoral committee is actively

involved in the discussion of specific

plans and preparations to ensure

the main events are implemented

in a well-organised, systematic and

precise manner.

“Suchcommitment, perseverance

and

cooperation

demonstrate

the strong ties among the citizens

and the people, which have been

established through their obedience

and loyalty to the sovereign and the

country.”

“The Golden Jubilee celebration

is obviously much anticipated by

all levels of society in the country,”

said His Royal Highness, adding

that “this will be the opportunity

for all the citizens and people of

Brunei Darussalam to honour His

Majesty’s wise reign as a monarch

committed towards the solidarity

and prosperity of his subjects and

THE Department of Councils of State has

informed special guests and the public that the

opening ceremony of the first meeting of the

13

th

session of the Legislative Council (LegCo)

has been postponed to Monday (March 6) from

Saturday (March 4).

The venue and time remain unchanged, the

department said in a press statement yesterday.

Opening

ceremony

of LegCo

postponed

to March 6

the country.

“It is therefore fitting that

the event should assume a

deep historical significance,

as a tribute to His Majesty’s

leadership

and

many

contributions during his 50-

year reign.”

His

Royal

Highness

further noted that steady and

committed involvement by all

levels of society, particularly

youths, is crucial to ensuring

the success of any major event.

“This is in line with the

aims of promoting the spirit of

volunteerism, willingness to

contribute tomatters of national

interest, love for the country

and readiness to uphold the

principles of monarchy,” said

His Royal Highness.

“This is very important in

this modern era of globalisation

that has completely changed

the way we live. If not handled

properly, a high-tech and

information-oriented lifestyle

can have adverse effects on the

thoughts, ideas and traditions

of society, especially youths.”

On this note, His Royal

Highness urged the executive

committee members to work

together in a concerted effort

to curb the negative effects of

globalisation.

“The executive committee

should

also

view

these

celebrations as an opportunity

to further strengthen the

Malay

Islamic

Monarchy

(MIB) concept as a continuing

tradition in a society that is

invested with pure Islamic

values and united in solidarity

as Bruneians,” said His Royal

Highness.
