The Central Highlands province of Dak Nong and the Cambodian province of Mondulkiri have enjoyed a growing relationship since they signed a comprehensive partnership agreement in 2010.

According to Le Duc Cuong from the Dak Nong Department of External Relations, the agreement, aiming to boost socio-economic agreement between the two localities in the 2010-2015 period, has seen a number of fruitful outcomes.

Thanks to the close coordination between local governments of both sides, the localities have finished border demarcation work as scheduled, with eight landmarks planted, he said.

Dak Nong has also handed over a 24 billion VND (1.128 million USD) vocational school as well as a public security headquarters building to Mondulkiri, said Cuong.

Meanwhile, trade exchange activities between the two provinces have been on the rise, mostly with consumer goods, construction materials, fertilizer and agricultural products, he noted.

At the same time, the two sides have also seen strong partnership in security and defence, particularly in preventing and combating violations of border regulations, drug trafficking and cross-border crimes, Cuong added.-VNA
