The Vietnamese Embassy in Cambodia held a ceremony in Phnom Penh on Nov. 4 to present Cambodia with 500 books on bilateral friendship, in both Vietnamese and Khmer languages.

Vietnamese ambassador Ngo Anh Dung said the 600-page collection of poems and music pieces on Vietnam-Cambodia friendship is expected to revive the atmosphere of a difficult period of time which connected two nations together.

He also stressed the significance of the event, which took place in the context of increased bilateral friendship, cooperation and exchange activities, following Vietnam-Cambodia Culture Week 2010 in Sihanoukville and Phnom Penh.

Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister Men Sam On said the bilingual books will help young generations of both countries to understand the history of the two nations.

The same day, the embassy also held a talk on investment and business activities of Vietnamese enterprises in Cambodia, drawing the participation of more than 20 Vietnamese businesses./.
