The Minister at the Prime Minister's Office said the number of visitors entering and exiting the country's borders are also expected to increase when the country's borders are operating as normal, once there is no longer the threat of COVID-19. In an interview during the Special Programme 'Temburong: Permata Hijau Negara Brunei Darussalam' or Temburong: Green Jewel Of Brunei Darussalam, Yang Berhormat Dato Seri Setia Haji Awang Abdul Mokti bin Haji Mohammad Daud as the Co-Chairman of the Temburong District Development Authority, AKDT, explained that the security infrastructure aspect will be improved to accommodate the number of visitors which are expected to increase.
