Brunei has a small well-to-do economy that encompasses a mixture of foreign and domestic entrepreneurship, government regulation, welfare measures, and village tradition. crude oil and natural gas production account for just over half of gdp and more than 90% of exports. per capita gdp is among the highest in asia, and substantial income from overseas investment supplements income from domestic production. the government provides for all medical services and free education through the university level and subsidizes rice and housing. brunei's leaders are concerned that steadily increased integration in the world economy will undermine internal social cohesion. plans for the future include upgrading the labor force, reducing unemployment, strengthening the banking and tourist sectors, and, in general, further widening the economic base beyond oil and gas.

Brunei and malaysia agreed in september 2008 to resolve their offshore and deepwater seabed dispute, resume hydrocarbon exploration, and renounce any territorial claims on land; brunei established an exclusive economic fishing zone encompassing louisa reef in the southern spratly islands in 1984, but makes no public territorial claim to the offshore reefs; the 2002 "declaration on the conduct of parties in the south china sea" has eased tensions in the spratly islands but falls short of a legally binding "code of conduct" desired by several of the disputants
