This Informed Community Programme is one of Department of Information programmes under the Face to Face Communication, which among other things aims to enhance knowledge and promote the development and efforts of the government, in improving the standard of living of the people, such as through briefings and visits, in the hope of establishing identity and encouraging the spirit of continuing to cooperate in supporting the country's aspirations.

Department of Information hopes that this programme will provide benefits, experience and inspiration to participants through briefings and visits that have been organised for two days.

This Informed Community Programme is held in every district in this country in stages, which focuses on the mukim and the villages.

The programme, which is aimed at reaching out to the public, is still relevant in today's modern times, as it is more 'personal' and more effective interaction and can provide good relationship between public and private civil servants.

In addition, it is intended to be one of the medium in response to the command of His Majesty The Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam, during the celebration of His Majesty's 72nd birthday in which he decreed that one of the steps towards economic growth is, by exploring the agricultural sector and the sector is very important for life, as it plays a major role in the construction of civilisation.

In addition to Face-to-Face Communication work, the Department of Information is also approaching the community with two other strategies, namely publishing materials and media relations, among which by introducing mobile apps 'InfoDeptBN' that can be downloaded via the Google Playstore app, for Android users and Apps Store for iOS users.

In disseminating current information, the department also featured posters and videos for the events of departments and ministries through the Informational Screen, housed in several public focus areas, such as government buildings and business premises .
