"You can't build a deep friendship without mutual understanding." This is a widely known proverb in Brunei. China and Brunei have established and maintained a tradition of friendly exchanges since ancient times, laying a solid foundation for today's friendly relations and cooperation between the two countries.

As an important country along the Maritime Silk Road, Brunei is attracting increasingly more Chinese investment. The economic and trade cooperation between China and Brunei has developed rapidly and the economic and trade relations have deepened day by day. In 2014, at the 11th China-ASEAN Exposition, the Brunei government and the government of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China, decided to build the “Brunei-Guangxi Economic Corridor”. Since then, more and more Chinese companies have entered Brunei. China has provided great assistance to the construction of Brunei's infrastructure and built the Damora Bridge, the Telisai-Lumut Expressway, the Ulu Tutong Dam and other projects, as well as the largest infrastructure project in Brunei history - the Temburong Cross-sea Bridge connecting Brunei mainland and Temburong District.

 

In 2018, the bilateral trade volume between the Brunei and China was 1.84 billion U.S. dollars, up 86% year-on-year. The two countries have achieved remarkable results in cooperation in investment and contractual services. By the end of February 2019, China had concluded engineering contracts with a total contract price of 3.25 billion US dollars in Brunei, and completed a turnover of 3.34 billion US dollars. The exchanges and cooperation between the two countries in the fields of civil aviation, health, culture, tourism, sports, education and justice have gradually begun.

Over the years, all walks of life in Brunei have actively participated in China-ASEAN Expo and benefited greatly. It can be said that China-ASEAN Expo has brought many opportunities for cooperation to Brunei.

The two sides started comprehensive cooperation in agriculture, industry, logistics, halal food processing, health care, biomedicine, tourism and other fields. With 15 consecutive years of exhibition experience, Brunei's advantageous industries have emerged with the continuous expansion of the scale of the exhibition at the Expo. In the previous Expos, Brunei presented a total of 653 booths and 240 exhibiting companies. At the 15th China-ASEAN Expo, Brunei mainly exhibited feature and advantageous products such as food and beverages, health products, port operations, and educational services. Brunei's halal food, seafood, electronic information products and services have become very prestigious brands at the Expo. They are favored by purchasers and have gradually entered Chinese market.
