Hanoi (VNA) – Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam suggested the industry ministries of Vietnam and Cambodia boost links to support both countries’ businesses in the industry and investment fields.

During his reception for Cambodian Minister of Industry and Handicrafts Cham Prasidh in Hanoi on March 28, the Deputy PM said the two sides should enhance cooperation in goods production and supply for not only their markets but also to third markets.

Vietnamese firms have so far poured money into 182 projects in industry, investment and trade in Cambodia. Vietnam is Cambodia’s third largest trade partner, with average growth of 18.5 percent fir 2010-2015.

Informing the host of his talks with representatives from Vietnam’s Ministry of Industry and Trade, Minister Cham Prasidh stated that the two ministries are focusing on measures to assist the two countries’ businesses.

Cambodia wants to learn from Vietnam’s experience in managing small and medium-sized enterprises exporting goods, particularly garment shipment, he said.

He underlined the need to boost the exchange of all-level delegations between the two countries, and enhance economic connection in fields, thus strengthening the bilateral relationship.-VNA
