The special relationship and comprehensive cooperation between Vietnam and Cambodia have continuously developed in all fields in recent times.
The statement was made by Cambodian Consul General in HCM City, Sam Samouth, at a meeting with President of the Vietnam-Cambodia Friendship Association in HCM City, Truong Minh Nhut, to mark the 58 th anniversary of Cambodia’s Independence Day on November 8.
Sam Samouth said trade ties between the two countries have increased sharply this year, with the value amounting to US$2 billion at present. Vietnam has also invested in major fields in Cambodia such as transportation, banking, trade, tourism, agriculture, power, rubber, aviation, health, oil and gas. Cambodia has welcomed around 550,000 Vietnamese tourists since the beginning of the year.
At the meeting, Mr Nhut noted that cooperation between localities in HCM City and Cambodia has also been promoted especially in trade, education, training, health and tourism.
The cooperative project with Vietnam to build Cho Ray – Phnom Penh Hospital has made important contributions to improving the health of the Cambodian people.
