BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN, Sept. 28 (Xinhua) -- After announcing expansion of service into Beijing, capital of China two weeks ago, Brunei is ready to provide more flight connections to Chinese cities and more travel packages to Chinese tourists.
Awang Wardi Bin Hj Mohammad Ali, acting permanent secretary at the Ministry of Primary Resources and Tourism, said Thursday that Brunei welcomes more visitors from China and other countries with more convenience and attractions provided.
"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#1# 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.
"China market is so big and sophisticated, so we need to take different strategies to save the market#2# including more scheduled flights and chartered flights," he said.
"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.

Five more Russian athletes have been banned from the Olympics for life as a result of the International Olympic Committee's investigations into the country's doping scandal.
Sergei Chudinov, Aleksei Negodailo, Dmitry Trunenkov, Yana Romanova and Olga Vilukhina have all been punished.
The IOC announced the first Russian bans, based on the findings of the 2016 McLaren report, on 1 November.
On Monday#4# it published a full decision on one of the bans for the first time.
In it, the IOC's disciplinary commission described the "puzzle" of investigating something that was "by nature and purpose elusive".
The McLaren report said Russian athletes benefited from a state-sponsored doping programme between 2011 and 2015, speaking of "a cover-up that evolved from uncontrolled chaos to an institutionalised and disciplined medal-winning conspiracy".
In explaining its decision to punish Alexander Legkov, one of two Russian skiers banned on 1 November, the IOC said the athlete had "sought to argue that no evidence could be drawn from the McLaren report" but it had "come to a different conclusion".
It said the authority of the report's author, Professor Richard McLaren, was "unquestionable" and it "can and will rely" on its findings.
Negodailo and Trunenkov were members of Russia's four-man bobsleigh team that won gold at Sochi 2014.
Romanova and Vilukhina won silver in the biathlon relay#5# while Vilukhina won silver in the 7.5km event.
Nineteen Russian athletes have now been suspended from the Olympics for life since 1 November.
The latest bans come with the IOC set to rule on whether Russia will be allowed to compete at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, which begin on 9 February.
The IOC will announce its decision at its next meeting, scheduled to begin on 5 December.

Japan’s SoftBank Group Corp is offering to purchase shares of Uber Technologies Inc at a valuation of US$48 billion, a 30 percent discount to its most recent valuation of US$68.5 billion, a person familiar with the matter said on Monday.
The investment, which was approved by the Uber board in October, would also trigger a string of governance changes at Uber that would limit some early shareholders’ voting power, expand the board from 11 to 17 directors and cut the influence of former Chief Executive Travis Kalanick.
The investment and board moves are supported by new Chief Executive Dara Khosrowshahi and come at the end of a year of scandals and change for Uber#9# including the announcement last week that executives covered up a major hack in 2016.
The consortium of investors led by SoftBank and Dragoneer Investment Group plan to take a stake of at least 14 percent in the r.
