Vietnam and Cambodia to boost co-operation on construction

Wednesday, August 12, 2009

Vietnam and Cambodia should continue to strengthen co-operation on land management, urban planning and construction in order to make a contribution to consolidating and promoting the two countries’ fine friendship.

Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung made the statement while receiving Cambodian Senior Minister of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction Im Chhun Lim in Hanoi on August 11.

Vietnam wishes to effectively implement the agreements signed between the two governments on speeding up trade ties, especially investment by Vietnamese investors in Cambodia, PM Dung affirmed.

This not only brings economic benefit to both, but also develops the existing fine friendship between the two nations, he added.

The Vietnamese PM expressed pleasure at the development of bilateral ties in all fields as well as the results of talks between the Cambodian Minister and Vietnam’s Minister of Construction, Nguyen Hong Quan, as well as the Minister of Natural Resource and Environment Pham Khoi Nguyen.

Vietnam will provide personnel training in construction for Cambodia, and exchange experience in legislation on land management and construction, PM Dung said.

For his part, Minister Im Chhun Lim pledged to support Vietnamese construction investors in Cambodia and create favourable conditions for Ho Chi Minh City’s Construction University and Architecture University to open training branches in Cambodia. (VNA)
