PM Dung Urges Expanded Co-operation With Cambodia

Ha Noi–The Vietnamese Government would do its best to work with the Cambodian Government to raise bilateral ties to a more effective and fruitful level, said Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung in Ha Noi yesterday. Dung told the Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation Hor Namhong there was huge potential for further co-operation between the two nations, particularly in the areas of trade, investment, tourism, education and training and cross-border links. He also proposed the two sides work more actively within ASEAN forums to make the ASEAN community more prosperous. Additionally, the two nations should co-operate with the Mekong River Commission to use the river’s water resources sustainably and effectively. Dung also said he hoped Cambodia would support the Vietnamese community living and working in Cambodia and be more efficient in border marking.
