The Vietnamese Ministry of Planning and Investment and the Cambodian Ministry of Planning have signed a cooperation document during March 5 talks in Hanoi.

Planning and Investment Minister Bui Quang Vinh said that improving the efficiency of future bilateral cooperation requires both ministries to properly guide their governments’ development policy designs.

Cambodian Planning Minister Chahay Than hailed Vietnam’s socio-economic achievements as well as the assistance and cooperation the country has given to Cambodia’s economic, educational and infrastructure development process.

In 2012, a larger proportion of Cambodia’s international arrivals originated from Vietnam than any other country. The Cambodian Ministry of Planning also enjoyed the support of its Vietnamese counterpart when calculating national and local GDP targets.

Than said he hopes his ministry will continue to receive support in the above fields and broaden cooperation more generally.

Minister Vinh reiterated his respect for Cambodia’s achievements in economic growth, inflation control, and agricultural development.

The two ministers agreed that future cooperation should be promoted through the regular visit exchanges to deepen mutual understanding and expand cooperation in the Vietnam-Laos-Cambodia development triangle.

Minister Vinh also used the occasion to present the Friendship Order to a number of Cambodian Planning Ministry individuals and collectives, acknowledging their contributions to the two nations’ friendship and cooperation.
