Mr. Khai told Cambodian Deputy PM Sun Chanthol that cooperation between the two countries has maintained a stable development momentum with economic cooperation being a bright spot and trade turnover growing dramatically in the first quarter of this year.

Mr. Chanthol said that to achieve the goal of 20 billion USD in bilateral trade, the two countries need to strengthen economic-trade-investment relations, adding that the Cambodian Government encourages Vietnamese businesses to invest more in Cambodia.

Mr. Khai reiterated Vietnam's respect for Cambodia's legitimate interests in national construction and development, including the Funan Techo canal project, in line with the friendly relations and relevant regulations of the Mekong River Commission.

He urged Cambodia to continue collaborating closely with Vietnam and the Commission to share information and assess the project's impact on water resources and the eco-environment in the Mekong River basin. This, he stressed, is crucial for harmonizing the interests of riparian countries for the sustainable development of the basin and the wellbeing of its inhabitants.
