Ambassador mentioned that since the establishment of diplomatic relation between China and Brunei on 30 September 1991, under the strategic guidance of the leaders of the two countries and the comprehensive support of the people on both sides, the bilateral relationship had enjoyed a rapid development. The year of 2013 witnessed the establishment of a strategic cooperative relationship, which was upgraded to a strategic cooperative partnership in 2018. There were frequent high-level visits between the two sides. His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam visited China 12 times, both president and premier of China paid multiple visits to Brunei. The visit of the State Councilor and Defence Minister General Wei Fenghe concluded early this month which helped to enhance the further cooperation of the two countries. We set up Joint Intergovernmental Steering Committee and mechanism of exchanges in various fields such as political and economic consultations, which vigorously promoted pragmatic cooperation that continuously achieves new results.

Ambassador elaborated that the year of 2021 marks the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Brunei. 30 years means steadily moving towards the goal and approaching maturity. The multitudes of challenges facing today’s world is vastly different from 30 years ago. Yet, peace and development remain the underlying trend of the times, and people everywhere crave even more strongly for peace, development and win-win cooperation. China and Brunei set a good example of relations between countries of different sizes based on equality and mutual benefit for common development. China will continue working with Brunei to jointly assume responsibilities, fulfil mission and address challenges.

Ambassador said that to celebrate the coming 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Brunei, after close communication and coordination, the Chinese Embassy in Brunei together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports of Brunei co-organize the 30th Anniversary Commemorative Logo Design Competition.

The Bruneian and Chinese citizens residing in Brunei from various sectors, especially young people and students, are welcome to participate. We are looking forward to seeing designs that are full of imagination and capture the theme prominently. We wish the competition a huge success. I also hope that the seated media friends could promote this competition as well as our friendship through your respective platform to attract more people to take part in this competition.

At last, Ambassador expressed that in the process of responding to the epidemic since beginning of this year, the people of China and Brunei have supported each other, with cooperation strengthened, mutual trust deepened and friendship enhanced.
