The exchange of Vietnamese and Cambodian young people has contributed to enhancing mutual understanding and cooperation between the two countries.

Le Manh Ha, Vice Chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee, made the affirmation while receiving a delegation of the Union of Youth Federations of Cambodia (UYFC) on December 27.
He said over the past time, HCM City has proactively partnered with the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh in various fields.

The city has always created favourable conditions for exchanges and experience sharing between the municipal young people and their Cambodian peers, the official noted.

In response, UYFC President Hun Many spoke highly of the valuable support from the Vietnamese army and people to Cambodia in overthrowing the Khmer Rouge genocidal regime.

Cambodian youth always keep in their mind the need to uphold the tradition to develop the country, he said.
On this occasion, the UYFC and the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union’s HCM City Chapter exchanged experience in operation and youth gathering.

During their stay in HCM City, the Cambodian delegation also visited Nha Rong wharf and the War Remnants Museum.

Earlier, Hun Many and President of the Vietnam Youth Federation Phan Van Mai signed a cooperative agreement for the 2013-2017 period. Accordingly, the two sides will increase the exchange of delegations, organise meetings for young people and share experience in education, youth mobilisation and voluntary work./
