More Chinese travellers keen on Brunei

FLAG carrier Royal Brunei Airlines (RB) is expecting to come in Brunei, attracted by the sultanate’s more leisurely pace.

In a meeting the day before yesterday with The Business Report (TBR) team, RB Deputy Chairman Dermot Mannion cited the increasing number of Chinese visitors.

“The growth in visitor numbers from Hong Kong is about 14 per cent up on last year. Similarly, we are seeing seven per cent growth year-on-year from Shanghai into Brunei,” he said.

Mannion said this is an encouraging start in these early stages, adding that Chinese passengers like staying in Brunei for a few days to escape the hustle and bustle of China.

Chinese tourists, he said, enjoy the peace and tranquillity that Brunei has to offer.

RB is also developing marketing strategies to encourage more Chinese tourists to visit the sultanate.

“We are confident that we will see a significant growth in passenger traffic from the overall Chinese market,” he said.

He added the rise in traffic will lead to more cargo activity as well. He said the Brunei-Guangxi Economic Corridor is going to be an impetus for freight and logistics over the coming years.

“We are keen to take full advantage of these opportunities,” he said.

Justin Calderon, TBR’s Editorial Director and Isabella Romeo, TBR’s Project Director, are producing The Brunei Darussalam Report, a special report to be published in The China Daily in January 2016 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of diplomatic relations between China and Brunei.

AseanAffairs   04 January 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
