This study was commissioned by The Tourism Development Department, Ministry of Primary Resources and Tourism (MPRT) to assist in the updating of the Tourism Satellite Account (TSA) for the year 2010 to 2016. The objectives of the study are:

  • To collect, analyse and update the data required to compile the Tourism Satellite Accounts for Brunei Darussalam and its contribution to the GDP for the years 2010-2016.
  • To assess the attitudes and preferences of a sample of tourists coming to Brunei Darussalam, as well as their level of satisfaction with the infrastructures and services available.
  • To identify patterns and correlations between preferences, behaviours, and background characteristics of the sample of tourists.

CSPS conducted a passenger exit survey to estimate the expenditure and assess the attitudes, preferences of a sample of tourists coming to Brunei Darussalam, as well as their level of satisfaction with the infrastructures and services available.

The main findings of the TSA include an estimation of total tourism expenditure by foreign visitors and domestic tourists, as well as direct and indirect tourism-induced GVA and employment, therefore measuring the overall impact of tourism on the economy.

The final report has already been submitted to MPRT for comments and approval.
