A Vietnam-Cambodia friendship school was inaugurated in Daun Keo city in Cambodia’s Takeo province on September 26. 

Covering 5,000 square metres, the school’s construction was funded by the Vietnamese Mekong Delta province of An Giang. 

Addressing the inaugural ceremony, Takeo Deputy Governor Um Vanna lauded the efforts of the Vietnamese-Cambodian Association to establish the facility, saying the school is a symbol of the traditional An Giang – Takeo bond. 

On the occasion, Vietnamese and Cambodian philanthropists brought computers, education tools, uniforms and trees to the school.
