    Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports Dato Seri Setia Awang Haji Nazmi bin Haji Mohamad and spouse Datin Hajah Binanun binti Haji Bungsu attended as the guests of honour.

    The ambassador also highlighted the keen interest of Bruneians in learning the Thai language, Thai martial arts Muay Thai and enjoying Thai cuisine, which is testament to the strong economic and people-to-people ties that have the potential to be developed for long-term and concrete cooperation in infrastructure, wellness and medical tourism, sports, youth and cultural exchanges.

    “With our countries sharing common priorities such as embracing sustainability and digital transformation, I am confident that we can further strengthen our cooperation for the mutual benefits of our two countries and peoples as we are approaching the 40th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations, in 2024,” added the ambassador.
