July 16, 2012 - Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei - Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird meets with Al-Muhtadee Billah, Crown Prince of Brunei. “It has been an honour to meet with His Royal Highness,” said Baird.
This was Baird’s second meeting with the Crown Prince. Baird was pleased to welcome the Crown Prince on his visit to Canada last September.
Canada engages with Brunei through cooperation in several multilateral organizations, including the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), the Commonwealth, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum (APEC) and the United Nations.
