Chiew Chee Phoong, Assistant Group Editor-in-Chief of the Brunei Times, a participant of the 2nd 10+3 Media Cooperation Forum, said that the most memorable part of the trip to China was having witnessed 1.3 billion Chinese people pulling together to bring relief to the quake disaster; in addition to the nationwide three-day mourning.
Chiew added that with the force of such a united Chinese people, the reconstruction of disaster areas will not be a difficult task. In addition, China will certainly be able to successfully run this year's Olympic Games.

He said that efforts the Chinese government and its people have taken to rescue the people reflect the most humanitarian spirit.
