Comprehensive Partnership


On 19 June 2023 in Canberra, Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah signed a Joint Declaration to elevate bilateral relations to a Comprehensive Partnership.

The Comprehensive Partnership is underpinned by three pillars of cooperation:

  • Energy, Climate Change and Food Security;
  • Defence, Security and Maritime; and
  • Social-Cultural.

The Comprehensive Partnership advances both Australia’s and Brunei’s shared interests in a peaceful, prosperous, and resilient region. It commits the two countries to enhancing cooperation in a range of areas, including economic development, cybersecurity, climate change, food security, health, education, people-to-people links and maritime security.
