The holy month of Ramadhan is a significant month for people in Brunei, while upholding the Malay Islamic Monarchy (MIB) the philosophy, the Chinese Embassy in Brunei Darussalam said in a statement, marking the end of Ramadhan and signifying the start of the Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebration.

Every year during Ramadhan, the embassy organises a number of activities to promote interactions and foster ties with the local community.

This year’s Ramadhan saw Chargé d’ Affaires of the Chinese Embassy in Brunei Darussalam Wang Haitao visiting Pai Yuek School, Temburong District to donate to students basic necessities and gifts in commemoration of the 30th Anniversary of the Establishment of Diplomatic Relations between China and Brunei.

The embassy, with support from the Chinese National Radio and Television Administration, also collaborated with Radio Television Brunei (RTB) with the broadcast of a Chinese drama Masa Muda Terindah aired on prime time via Channel RTB Aneka. The drama, the first to be broadcast in Malay language in Brunei, tells the story of a group of Chinese youngsters who migrated from the city to a remote desert and turned it into an oasis after conducting tree-planting campaigns for decades. The programme won ‘Best TV Drama’ under the Chinese prestigious Flying Apsaras Awards for 2020.

This year’s Ramadhan also saw the Chinese Embassy awarding certificates and prizes to primary schools that had actively participated in its painting competition commemorating the 30th Anniversary of the Establishment of Diplomatic Relations between China and Brunei; and visiting Chinese students at Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) and Universiti Islam Sultan Sharif Ali (UNISSA), as well as volunteers who came to Brunei to teach Chinese language.

The youth is the future, said the embassy. Cultural and people-to-people exchanges between China and Brunei have been flourishing in recent years, in particular student exchanges among the youth, strengthening the friendship between the two nations.

Meanwhile, last year’s Ramadhan saw Chinese Ambassador to Brunei Darussalam Yu Hong handing over donations to orphans residing in Kampong Subok.
