The agreements were signed during Prime Minister Hun Sen’s three-day official visit to Turkey. Mr Hun Sen landed in Turkey’s biggest city, Istanbul, on Saturday.

Having pledged to attract more Turkish investors to accelerate two-way trade, the Cambodian premier presided over the opening of the Cambodia-Turkey Business Forum.

“The Cambodia-Turkey Business Forum is a sign of the strong relations between the countries and presents many lucrative opportunities for Cambodian firms,” the premier said.

“Cambodia will strive to achieve a double taxation agreement, which is in the best interest of both countries,” Mr Hun Sen said.

Prime Minister Hun Sen said that Cambodia will open an embassy in Turkey in 2019, six years after the opening of the Turkish Embassy in Phnom Penh.

He said that the next step in furthering the relation between the countries is to create a direct flight.
