Under the Currency Interchangeability Agreement (CIA) which took effect on 12 June 1967, each country undertakes to accept the currency issued by the other, and to exchange it at par and without charge, into its own currency. Forty-five years on, Singapore and Brunei continue to build on this strong historical bond to grow bilateral trade and cooperate on a wide range of areas including tourism, health and education.
