HA NOI (VNS)— Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung will start his three-day working visit to Cambodia tomorrow with a view to carrying forward bilateral economic, trade and investment ties.

In the first 10 months of 2013, two-way trade between the two countries rose by 8 percent year-on-year to US$2.94 billion. This figure is expected to surge to $5 billion by 2015, underpinned by deeper co-operation in cross-border trade, tourism, telecommunications, aviation, banking, oil and gas, industrial plants and agriculture.

Viet Nam has poured over $3 billion into 126 projects in Cambodia.

The visit is made at the invitation of the Cambodian PM, Samdech Techno Hun Sen. — VNS
