Brunei, China eye more youth plans


A delegation from the All China Youth Federation (ACYF) is in Brunei for two days in order to explore possibilities in increasing the level of youth exchanges between the two countries.

Established in 1949, the ACYF is a federative body of Chinese youth organisations and excellent youth nationwide.

Through its 52 member organisations and over 77,000 individual members at all levels, the ACYF reaches over 300 million young people across China, according to its website.

In an interview with The Brunei Times, deputy secretary general of ACYF, Chen Guanghao, explained that the delegation was here to follow up on the experiences of previous visits by youth from China to the country.

He noted that after 21 years of diplomatic relations, the young people of China have a good impression of Brunei and would want more opportunities to visit the country's "natural beauty".

Chen also added that bilateral relations can be improved by having more people-to-people exchanges. He was confident more of those exchanges will take place as the leaders of both countries have agreed that youth exchanges were important in promoting bilateral ties.

"We are trying to expand the scale and level of the exchanges," he said, noting that currently, what they have was not as big as they expected.

He added that a major part of their visit was to look for opportunities to increase the youth exchanges, "to do better and make them bigger and more often".

The delegation met yesterday with the acting director of Youth and Sports, Mohd Zamri bin Hamdani at the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports (MCYS) headquarters yesterday.

They also attended a briefing by the Brunei Youth Council and the MCYS to help them understand the function and role of those organisations.

The delegation will also be visiting cultural sites around Brunei during their stay.

As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
