PRESS RELEASE

BRUNEI DARUSSALAM CENTRAL BANK

INAUGURAL BUSINESS SENTIMENT INDEX (BSI) FOR BRUNEI DARUSSALAM

FOR NOVEMBER 2021

 

  1. Brunei Darussalam Central Bank (BDCB) today published Brunei Darussalam's inaugural Business Sentiment Index (BSI) for the month of November 2021. The index is based on surveys conducted on selected micro to large businesses, from all economic sectors in the country. The BSI surveys commenced in August 2020 whereby selected businesses have been participating on a monthly basis.

  2. The monthly index is designed to measure the level of business confidence/sentiment in the country. It serves to assess the current business climate of the private sector as a whole as well as within those sectors. As such, the index can be a leading macroeconomic indicator of economic growth with a forward-looking element. The BSI is compiled through surveys which include general questions regarding current and future business conditions, investments, employment of workers, as well as costs of running the businesses. More than 600 businesses were selected to represent the eleven (11) sectors in Brunei Darussalam's economy.

    The BSI and sub-indices can be interpreted as below:


  3. Within the BSI, there are nine (9) sub-indices. The Current Business Conditions sub-index, which is the main headline index for the BSI, was 50.1 in November 2021. This was the second expansion after the BSI recorded a contraction in September 2021. Nonetheless, the expansion was not broad-based and pessimism surrounding the second outbreak of COVID-19 in the country remains. Since the second outbreak in early August 2021, businesses have faced multiple challenges and disruptions to operations including employees undergoing quarantine orders, lack of new projects, need to minimise going out to sites and meeting new clients hence slowing down progress, shortening operations and working hours and general restrictions which have hampered business conditions. Looking ahead, businesses were more optimistic as the index for the 1M Ahead Business Conditions was recorded at 50.6. This expectation was more broad-based across the different sectors as there are hopes for increased business activity after the announcement of the Transition Phase in November 2021.

  4. The Investment sub-index was 49.9 for the current month, 50.0 for the month ahead and 50.6 for the next three months, indicating businesses generally invested less in November compared to October 2021. On the other hand, they are not expecting much change to their investment expenditures in December 2021 but anticipate to ramp up investments in the three months ahead. Businesses cited they are holding off on their planned investments due to slower business activity experienced since the second outbreak of COVID-19 in the country and have remained cautious since then.

  5. The Employment sub-index was 50.0 for the current month and 50.5 for the month ahead, indicating that businesses were generally not hiring in November 2021 but plan to continue hiring new staff in December 2021. Businesses cited high turnover rate in the private sector and have started to hire more locals due to difficulty in hiring foreign workers given border restrictions and COVID-19 outbreak outside the country. Most businesses are generally hiring to replace foreign workers who have ended their employment contracts and returned to their home countries. However, businesses also cited high turnover rate among local employees being one of the challenges faced.

  6. The Costs sub-index was 50.3 for the current month and 50.4 for the month ahead, indicating that businesses felt the costs of running their businesses in November 2021 were higher compared to October 2021 and expect costs to continue to increase in December 2021.  During the second outbreak of COVID-19 and before going into the Transition Phase in November, the rise in costs faced by businesses was also linked to purchases of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) as well as masks, sanitisers, antigen rapid test kits and for restaurants, more takeaway containers due to dining-in restrictions which has resulted in increased demand for takeaways. Additionally, businesses have been facing rising shipping costs since the start of the global COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.



  7. In terms of economic sectors, some optimism was recorded in about half of the economic sectors in November 2021. Nevertheless, pessimism was still being reported in the Manufacturing, Construction, Finance & Insurance and Health & Education sectors. Overall, this is an improvement compared to their performances in previous months. In October, only the Oil & Gas Related and Agriculture, Forestry, Fisheries & Livestock sectors reported some optimism. Meanwhile, ten (10) sectors reported generally worsening conditions in September 2021 aside from the Agriculture, Forestry, Fisheries & Livestock sector. The general pessimism can be attributed to gloomy prospects amid the second wave of COVID-19 outbreak in the country. Furthermore, the Transition Phase only started on 19 November 2021 - after the survey period which runs during the first two weeks of every month.



  8. In terms of the index by business size, owners of micro, small and medium sized business (MSME) viewed that their business conditions have continued to worsen in November 2021 since the start of the second outbreak of COVID-19 in August, which has disrupted their operations. Common challenges faced by MSMEs include difficulty in hiring foreign workers due to border restrictions as part of COVID-19 mitigation measures and unpredictable weather. After contracting for three consecutive months in August, September and October, large-sized businesses reported optimism in November 2021.



  9. For more information on BSI, members of the public may refer to the technical notes on the methodology and statistics, including the time-series charts for the BSI and its sub-indices since August 2020, from the BDCB website. Updates on the BSI will also be available on BDCB's Instagram account @centralbank.brunei.

MEDIA RELEASE

18 October 2021

 

ASEAN Capital Markets Forum forges ahead in pursuit of Sustainability and Connectivity.

ASEAN Capital Markets Forum (ACMF) today convened its 35th ACMF Chairs' Meeting hosted virtually by the Brunei Darussalam Central Bank to discuss key ACMF initiatives on sustainability and connectivity. 

The meeting acknowledged the close coordination between the ACMF, ASEAN Insurance Regulators' Meeting (AIRM), the Senior Level Committee on Financial Integration (SLC) and the ASEAN Working Committee on Capital Market Development (WC-CMD) to develop a sustainable finance taxonomy for ASEAN through the ASEAN Taxonomy Board, in relation to which a significant milestone is expected to be announced in conjunction with COP26. It had also endorsed and recognised the progressive efforts that are underway on the cross-cutting initiatives between the ACMF's Roadmap for ASEAN Sustainable Capital Markets (ACMF Roadmap) and the WC-CMD's Report on Promoting Sustainable Finance in ASEAN, which includes promoting corporate sustainability disclosures, exploring transition standards, developing the sustainable and responsible fund standards for ASEAN, leveraging multilateral and philanthropic effort and co-ordinating efforts with public and financial sectors. 

On corporate sustainability disclosures, ACMF discussed promoting climate reporting by listed corporates based on recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). ACMF also welcomed the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) Foundation's programme of work to set global baseline sustainability reporting standards, and discussed the feasibility of using these standards, taking into account each jurisdiction's domestic legal and regulatory arrangements, to promote consistent and comparable sustainability disclosures across ASEAN. 

In continuing the efforts to promote ASEAN asset classes, ACMF was pleased with the successful admission of the Securities and Exchange Commission Philippines (SEC Philippines) into the Framework for Cross-Border Offerings of ASEAN Collective Investment Schemes (ASEAN CIS) on 11th May 2021. The SEC Philippines' participation in the ASEAN CIS Framework marks a progressive step towards greater integration of ASEAN capital markets and enriching the pool of funds available for investment in ASEAN. Following this milestone, the revised Handbook for ASEAN CIS and their Operators was launched on 11th October 2021 to provide guidance to the operators of ASEAN CIS who are seeking to offer their CIS under the ASEAN CIS Framework. 

The meeting also welcomed the publication of the ASEAN Corporate Governance Scorecard (ACGS) Country Report Manuscript, which will raise the public's awareness on the ACGS initiative and elevate the visibility of the top domestic public listed companies from participating countries. 

Intensifying capacity building is one of the key priorities under the ACMF Roadmap. Positive progress has been made in the preparation to create a one-stop knowledge hub on sustainable finance as well as the development of relevant capacity building programs for the regulators. 

ACMF expressed its gratitude to the Asian Development Bank (ADB) for their support in providing ACMF with technical assistance as well as expert guidance to foster capital market development throughout the ASEAN region. 

ACMF also thanked Sustainable Finance Institute Asia (SFIA) and the Industry Advisory Panel Working Groups under the Joint Sustainable Finance Working Group for their continuous support for and effort in developing ASEAN's sustainable capital market. 

The Meeting also witnessed the handover of the ACMF Chairmanship from the ACMF Chair of 2021, Brunei Darussalam Central Bank, to the Securities and Exchange Regulator of Cambodia for 2022, with the Otoritas Jasa Keuangan, Indonesia as Vice-Chair.
