Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Amin Liew bin Abdullah, Minister in the Prime Minister's Office, Minister of Finance and Economy II, Chairman of BIA and Chairman of EVYD Technology, said: "EVYD Technology is a company that has a strong and clear mission ingrained in its DNA right from the very start. As EVYD continues to develop new technologies, refine our current technologies and aggregate more data across our increasing roster of clients and partners, we get closer to achieving a future where value-based outcome is made possible. EVYD has a clear role to play in optimizing the world's healthcare systems and mitigating unsustainable cost increases. This is our company's purpose and our north star."
"As EVYD accelerates our global expansion, we will continue to develop the competencies and capabilities in Brunei. The establishment of EVYD Campus in Jerudong is yet another concrete testament to our commitment to develop the local health and technology ecosystem, and to the wider community," he added.

Haji Sofian bin Mohammad Jani, Acting MD of BIA, said: "BIA has always believed in a purpose, mission and values alignment with all of our portfolio companies and strategic partnerships. As a strategic, long-term investor, BIA believes that the healthcare sector offers great potential for value creation given its acknowledged systemic issues. We acknowledge it will take time, collaboration and innovation to realize this value. We envision that the pathway to create this value is through an underlying platform that connects healthcare stakeholders to facilitate a more efficient exchange and analysis of information and data to drive better healthcare outcomes for all."
"At BIA, we are very optimistic about the growth potential of EVYD in the region and beyond. I am happy to note that EVYD has expanded to other countries, including Singapore and now the US. And that it continues to look at even more countries to grow its business. BIA is proud to be an investor, and we look forward to growing our partnership with EVYD from strength to strength," he added.
