A fair of high-quality Vietnamese goods and exports opened in Cambodia’s capital city of Phnom Penh on October 13, attracting the participation of 110 producers and 50 exporters.
Addressing the event, Cambodian Trade Minister Cham Prasit said in the first eight months of this year, two-way trade between Viet Nam and Cambodia reached US$790 million and Viet Nam’s total investment doubled the level of 2006 to hit the mark of US$114 million.
The minister added, however, that the figures were far below the potential for cooperation between the two countries.
Vietnamese Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Le Duong Quang said as the two countries are both members of the World Trade Organization, they enjoy good conditions to boost their bilateral cooperation within the regional and international frameworks.
During the trade fair, scheduled to run till October 17, various trade exchange activities between businesses of the two sides will be held in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.
