9 November 2020 - CONGRATULATORY MESSAGE TO HER EXCELLENCY THE RT. HON. JACINDA ARDERN ON HER RE-APPOINTMENT AS PRIME MINISTER OF NEW ZEALAND

From:  His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan, Brunei Darussalam
To:  Her Excellency The Rt. Hon. Jacinda Ardern, Prime Minister, New Zealand

Your Excellency,

I have great pleasure in sending my warmest congratulations to you on your re-appointment as Prime Minister of New Zealand.

Brunei Darussalam and New Zealand continue to enjoy warm and close relations, underpinned by various areas of cooperation. I look forward to further strengthening these ties both bilaterally and in the regional and international fora, particularly as New Zealand hosts the APEC Leaders' Meeting in 2021.

I also welcome the convening of the ASEAN - New Zealand Leaders' Summit this month to commemorate the 45th Anniversary of our longstanding Dialogue Relations. I look forward to enhancing the close partnership between our countries during Brunei Darussalam's Chairmanship of ASEAN in 2021 and as the coordinator for ASEAN - New Zealand Dialogue Relations from mid-2021 to mid-2024.

With my kindest regards and very best wishes to you and your family for your continued good health and happiness.



SULTAN HAJI HASSANAL BOLKIAH
OF BRUNEI
