Recently, Brunei held a grand ceremony to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah’s accession to the throne. XCMG, together with its Bruneian dealer BUILD MIX TRADING, decorated a unique and creative float to celebrate the Sultan’s golden jubilee. The float was decorated in a cannon and shield shape to symbolize the defense of the national territory, the country, and the people’s safety. The float won acclaim during the parade and was rated as the most creative float.

The highlights of the celebration included a 21 gun salute, the Sultan Hassanal’s review of the guard of honor in the palace, and the procession of the Sultan Hassanal and royal family members along the main streets of the capital city, Bandar Seri Begawan. It was reported that the parade was participated by about 80,000 people (about 2 percent of the population) who were overwhelmingly passionate and packed the streets tightly.
