Imperial Chinese texts noted that Brunei's King named Awang Alak Betatar embraced the Islamic faith in 1371 in conjunction with his marriage to a princess from a neighbouring kingdom.
The Chinese people who came to Bunei in 1370 said that Brunei was ruled by an Islamic ruler known as Ma-ha-mo-sha or Sultan Muhammad Shah.
After the disintegration of the Majapahit Empire, Brunei rulers took charge of their own territorial responsibility.
Imperial Chinese texts also indicated the Muslim influence was established in Brunei as early as 977 AD, and the employment of Arabic characters in Brunei's written language, hitherto Sanskrit, started before 1370.
We have also established School Learning Hubs in the public high schools with the goal of providing each student the computing resources they need in school as well.
Through these initiatives we aim to be the Startup/Technology Hub of the Philippines that will house all kinds of technology based companies from BPO Call Centers to US, other foreign-based, and locally grown technology startups.

We test the economic significance of these empirical findings via simulations.
Using structural and reduced-form estimations, we find that pollution havens are not a “popular myth” for European firms, laxer environmental standards significantly explain the location choice of polluting affiliates.
