Prime Minister Hun Sen on Saturday met with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in Tajikistan to boost ties and trade.

On his Facebook post on Saturday, Mr Hun Sen said that he wanted to see bilateral trade between the Kingdom and Turkey to reach $1 billion in the future.

“To carry out this work, [we] should make lists of goods that can be imported and exported between the two countries. It means that what kinds of goods Cambodia exports to Turkey and what goods Turkey can export to Cambodia,” he said.

Mr Erdoğan said that trade between both countries is $91 million which remains low, according to Mr Hun Sen’s post.

He said that the trade between both countries should be boosted to reach $500 or one billion dollars annually, according to the post.

“[We] should push for more Turkish and Cambodian investors to run many businesses,” Mr Erdoğan was quoted as saying.

Mr Hun Sen said that he hoped Mr Erdoğan will pay an official visit to the Kingdom in the near future.
