Brunei a data hub?
Borneo Bulletin 19 Mar 2013

IN the effort to diversify the country’s economy away from its dependence on oil and gas, one of the ideas pitched is to develop Brunei Darussalam as a data centre.

The idea that came from the Brunei government was revealed yesterday by Alexander C Feldman, the President of US-Asean Business Council, which is on a business mission to Brunei Darussalam, in a press conference.

He is leading 30 representatives of 11 well-known US companies in looking for opportunities to work with the Brunei government. The companies include Black and Veatch, Citi, ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil, Forbes Asia, GE, Google, Merck, Moody’s and Visa.
