The Mekong Delta province of Long An has so far this year provided over 10 billion VND (476,000 USD) in support of its neighbouring Cambodian provinces of Svay Rieng and Prey Veng.

It has helped Prey Veng build a bridge spanning the Cai Co canal at the Tan Hung-Svai A Ngoong auxiliary border gate. The bridge is expected to be completed in 2015.

It has also trained eight public servants from the two Cambodian localities in the Vietnamese language and agricultural techniques as well as granted scholarships to Cambodian students of Vietnamese origin at the provincial School of Economics and Industry.

Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Do Huu Lam said Long An will continue maintaining and developing all-round relations with Cambodia, organise charitable activities and accelerate the implementation of cooperation agreements with the two Cambodian provinces in the fields of economics, socio-culture, security and defence.-VNA
