EXHIBIT: Touch screens give visitors an overview of Brunei’s development since its establishment to the year 2035. 4D cinemas display colorful sceneries of Brunei via videos, sounds, wind and rainwater. The Pavilion is divided into five exhibition halls; visitors will meet the royal family of Brunei, see how the discovery of oil had a major affect on the lives and lifestyles of the Bruneian people and take their pictures of Brunei’s national mosque. Visitors enter the Pavilion at the reception desk, where helpful volunteers can answer questions about Brunei, the exhibit or pass out brochures about tourism and investment opportunities. A video playing at the reception desk will provide an introduction to Brunei to the casual visitor. Large portraits introduce you to the royal family, while a video on the perimeter wall depicts His Majesty’s speech regarding the future of Brunei, the outlook for a robust future and trade potential with China. The second area focuses on oil and its importance to the Bruneian economy as well as to the future of the world’s energy needs.

There is also a modest 15-seat 4D cinema that shows video clips of Brunei with sound effects, wind effects and even soft rain. The fourth area concentrates on Brunei’s investments into its own infrastructure, illustrating how Brunei is leading the way in social health care, education, economic diversification and ecological activism.
