Hanoi (VNA) – Vietnam and Cambodia should boost their solidarity, work together, and assist each other in the interests of their people, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc told Cambodia’s Ambassador to Vietnam Prak Nguon Hong.

At his reception for the diplomat in Hanoi on November 8, PM Phuc emphasised the important role of the Ambassador in stepping up the two countries’ cooperation.

He congratulated Cambodian people on their important achievements gained over the past years on the occasion of the country’s 63 rd National Day and affirmed that Vietnam and Cambodia have enjoyed the time-honoured traditional relations and always stood side by side with each other during the difficult times.

“The Party and State of Vietnam always treasure and give high priority to cementing and promoting the traditional friendship and all-sided cooperation with Cambodia,” PM Phuc said.

He expressed his hope that the Ambassador will have positive contributions to solidifying the two countries’ friendship during his working term, through promoting the demarcation of the shared land border and facilitating the Vietnamese community’s activities in Cambodia.

Ambassador Prak Nguon Hong said he is impressed with successes made by Vietnamese people and will do more for the bilateral friendship.

He hoped that he will receive due attention from the Government, functional agencies and Vietnamese people to accomplish his role as a bridge for the two countries’ friendship.

He pledged to actively participate in tackling problems still existed in the border demarcation and the planting of border markers.

The same day, the PM hosted Singapore’s Ambassador to Vietnam Catherine Wong during which he suggested the countries bolster connecting their economies by establishing more Vietnam-Singapore industrial parks and urban areas and inviting more multinational groups headquartered in Singapore to invest in Vietnam. 

He said the two countries should study new cooperative models, like the establishment of hi-technology and creative technology parks and food processing centres in Vietnamese localities.

Ambassador Catherine Wong affirmed that Singapore-Vietnam relations are growing strongly across the board, prominently in economy.

Agreeing with the PM’s views on enhancing economic connectivity and creating new cooperative fields, she pledged that she will focus on assisting the two countries’ businesses to boost investments and achieve successful operations.-VNA
