HA NOI (VNS) — Viet Nam and Cambodia reached agreements on a range of transport issues at a ministerial meeting held in Ha Noi on Saturday.

Attending the meeting were Vietnamese Transport Minister Dinh La Thang and Cambodian Public Works and Transport Minister Tram Iv Tek.

They agreed to speed up the organisation of a bilateral session on traffic connectivity and amendments to a protocol implementing a Viet Nam-Cambodia pact on road transport.

The Long Binh – Chrey Thom Bridge connecting the two nations is set to be opened soon.

The two ministers also agreed to co-ordinate on a one stop shop mechanism at the Moc Bai – Bavet international border gate, while working with Thailand to expand trilateral transport links by road and by water.

Both men supported an around-the-clock customs policy at all border gates as part of a bilateral agreement on water transport.

On the occasion, the King of Cambodia granted orders to Minister Thang and his deputy Nguyen Van The for their contributions to expanding co-operation between the two ministries. — VNS
