ASEAN Today-Apr 30, 2018

Brunei’s disabled population are underrepresented in the national workforce. The government must do more to support its disabled population.

Mahatma Gandhi famously said, “the true measure of any society can be found in how it treats its most vulnerable members”. If this is the true measure of a society, Brunei is in turmoil.

Brunei has an equal opportunities problem. By the government’s own admission, only 56 disabled citizens are in full-time employment. Brunei has a population of more than 9,000 registered as living with a disability.
