The establishment of PEMBELA has left significant effect in elevating the culture specifically among the youth. For example, in the Brunei Darussalam Youth Cultural Exchange Conference that was held last year, such an effort ensured cultural values continue to be inculcated, and at the same time, strengthen the relations between the youth and the previous generation. This was stated by the Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports at the PEMBELA Appreciation Ceremony 2020 and the Presentation of PEMBELA Special Awards at the Suri Seri Begawan Hospital's Learning and Development Centre in Kuala Belait.
Yang Berhormat Retired Major General Dato Paduka Seri Haji Aminuddin Ihsan bin Pehin Orang Kaya Saiful Mulok Dato Seri Paduka Haji Abidin said that the initiatives are evidence of the youth's caliber that can become as an example to other associations. With such achievements, Yang Berhormat added that PEMBELA will continue to move forwards to further expand its positive effects to the society and the nation.
33 youths received certificates for their contribution, involvement and efforts in PEMBELA. Meanwhile, 15 veteran members and youth leaders received the PEMBELA special award for their valuable contribution in shaping PEMBELA as a quality association.
