"We are very glad to have our Chinese friends around. Our tourism department is looking at several more packages for not only the Chinese but also for other markets," he told Xinhua on the sidelines of a press conference of Royal Brunei Airlines (RB), the sultanate's national airline.

"Besides improving our standards and quality of the our products, we are also looking to expand more tourism activities in Brunei, including river cruise in several locations. With these new activities and packages, we believe it will help to invite more tourists to our country," he added.

According to Karam Chand, RB's CEO, the flag carrier is considering opening more flights to Chinese cities.

"When you look at the trade, the growing bilateral relations and the movement of people, the potential for tourism, investment, all these things are there between Brunei and China," he said.
