Dr Rashed Sarwar, UNICEF Representative to Malaysia and Special Representative to Brunei met virtually today with YB Dato Seri Setia Haji Erywan Pehin Yusof, Minister of Foreign Affairs II of Brunei Darussalam to present his credentials. Discussions covered a wide array of topics on Brunei’s progress for children thus far and the way forward together with UNICEF, under the leadership of Dr Rashed.

Today was an opportunity to present not just my credentials, but my ideas on how UNICEF can support Brunei’s efforts in attaining child rights’ status as envisioned the Convention of the Rights of the Child. I take my role both seriously and with passion. There is no better work to wake up to than that of championing child rights. I am confident we can achieve great things in Brunei.

Dr Rashed
