Sharing a 56.8-kilometre borderline with Cambodia, the southern province of Kien Giang is in a favourable position to develop friendly relations with Cambodian localities.

In recent years, officials and border guards of the two countries have regularly held meetings to share information and resolve arising problems related to border issues.

Additionally, localities along the border set up twin relationships with Cambodian villages to jointly maintain border security, foster economic ties between the two peoples and prevent cross-border smuggling.

In the last 5 years, the province has launched over 20 campaigns to offer free medical examinations to more than 3,000 impoverished households in Cambodia.

From 2013 to 2014, Kien Giang and Cambodian border provinces recorded a bilateral trade revenue of more than 267 million USD.-VNA
