The Vietnamese government has expressed its appreciation to Cambodia for the continued support and non-discriminatory treatment given to the people of Vietnamese origin living in Cambodia.
According to a joint statement released after a two-day visit of Prime Minister to Vietnam, the Cambodian side also expressed the gratitude and appreciation for the assistance of the Vietnamese side in providing training, capacity building and grant aid over the years.
The two sides agreed to the timely implementation of the assistance projects, and continue to explore ways and means to improve the effectiveness of Viet Nam’s assistance to Cambodia, the statement said.
The two countries also agreed to strengthen coordination, information exchange, and mutual support at regional and international fora, especially within ASEAN and its related mechanisms, the UN, WTO and ASEM, it said.
At the same time, the two sides agreed to step up cooperation in areas of great potential such as information and communication technology, tourism, aviation, banking and finance, high- tech agriculture, farming and processing of agro-forestry-fishery products and healthcare, among others.
They also urged the relevant ministries and agencies of both sides to utilize the existing bilateral mechanism, especially the Joint Commission on Economic, Cultural, Scientific and Technological Cooperation and the Conference on Cooperation and Development of Border Provinces to strengthen this cooperation.
