On Sunday midnight, a total of 100,000 doses of Sinopharm vaccine donated by the Chinese government landed at Brunei International Airport.


At the airport, Haji Erywan, Brunei's second minister of foreign affairs, spoke on behalf of the Brunei government, while Yu Hong, the Chinese ambassador to Brunei, spoke on behalf of the Chinese government.


Senior government officials from Brunei's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA), Ministry of Health, and representatives from the Chinese embassy in the nation were also present.

 

"China and Brunei have cooperated hand in hand in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic since last year, telling volumes about the Kampong spirit of sharing weal and misery," Yu Hong remarked at the airport.


"In the process of anti-pandemic collaboration, pragmatic cooperation in numerous domains between our two nations, as well as friendship between our two peoples, has been expanded and advanced," she added.


Brunei and China have been cooperating in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic since 2020.

 

Brunei extended financial support to China in March 2020 to aid in the management of the pandemic's effects.
This is the second shipment of vaccines that China has donated.
The first consignment of Sinopharm vaccinations, totaling 52,000 doses, arrived in February 2021, according to an MFA press release.


According to the statement, "this year commemorates the 30th Anniversary of the Establishment of Diplomatic Relations, which is a significant milestone in Brunei-China relations."
