Prime Minister Hun Sen will visit Japan in early August, where he will meet Japanese leaders to discuss strengthening ties between the two nations, the government said yesterday.
Following a closed-door meeting between Mr Hun Sen and Japanese ambassador to Cambodia Hidehisa Horinouchi at the Peace Palace yesterday, Mr Hun Sen’s assistant informed reporters of the visit.
“Prime Minister Hun Sen’s upcoming visit to Japan will include economic discussions about trade sectors – as part of the strategic partnership of both countries – and there will also be discussions on human resources and traffic improvement in Phnom Penh,” Mr Sophallet said.
Mr Sophallet added that Mr Hun Sen will attend a seminar which will be attended by hundreds of Japanese investors.
Mr Hun Sen’s visit to Japan will be on the 25th anniversary of Japan sending peacekeepers to Cambodia and also on the 60th anniversary of former Japanese Prime Minister Nobusuke Kishi’s visit to Cambodia for the first time in 1957.
