Tay Ninh (VNA) – Officials from some Cambodian provinces offered greetings to authorities and people of southern Tay Ninh province during a visit on January 29 ahead of Vietnam’s traditional Lunar New Year festival (Tet).

Governor of Prey Veng province Chea Somethy, on behalf of the Cambodian provinces of Tboung Khmum, Svay Rieng, Kampong Cham and Oddar Meanchey, wished leaders and people of Tay Ninh health, happiness and good luck in the New Year.

He noted that thanks to the two Governments’ attention, the Cambodian provinces sharing the borderline with Tay Ninh have inked comprehensive and long-term cooperation agreements with the Vietnamese side. 

They have recorded encouraging results in economic, trade and social partnerships and in ensuring security and order in border areas, thus bringing a number of benefits to their people, especially border residents, he added.

Chairman of the Tay Ninh People’s Committee Pham Van Tan thanked the Cambodian provinces for their Tet greetings.

In 2017 and 2018, Tay Ninh and the Cambodian provinces of Svay Rieng, Prey Veng, Tboung Khmum and Kampong Cham officially inked cooperation deals and carried out many programmes to boost bilateral economic and trade ties.

He asked the relevant sides to keep cooperation under the signed agreements so as to enhance the solidarity, friendship and collaboration between the two countries, as well as between Tay Ninh and its neighbouring provinces in Cambodia.-VNA
