During a reception in Hanoi for President of the Cambodian National Assembly Samdech Heng Samrin, President Phuc said Vietnam and Cambodia are striving to accelerate border demarcation to build a borderline of peace, friendship, cooperation and sustainable development.
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, two-way trade hit nearly 10 billion USD last year, up 80% year-on-year. Vietnam has invested 2.8 billion USD in nearly 190 projects in Cambodia, becoming the biggest ASEAN investor and among the top five in the country.
Mr. Heng Samrin stressed that the Cambodian legislature always stands with Vietnam.
Over the past decade, friendly ties have been increasing in a range of areas, from culture, education, socio-economy to people-to-people exchange, he said, noting that the Cambodian Party and people always remember the dedication and sacrifice of voluntary Vietnamese soldiers and experts in their struggle for national liberation from the Pol Pot genocidal regime.
