Cambodia, Myanmar Pledge to Enhance Trade, Tourism, Education Ties


Cambodia and Myan­mar have pledged to enhance their bi­lateral relations in trade, tourism and education, according to a Cambodian senior official.

The pledge was made during a meeting between Cambodian Prime Minis­ter Samdech Techo Hun Sen and visiting Myanmar President U Htin Kyaw, said Eang Sophalleth, an assistant to the prime minister.

Htin Kyaw told Hun Sen that the two Association of Southeast Asian Nation (ASEAN) members had much room for growth in trade, tourism and educa­tion cooperation, and sug­gested that the two coun­tries promote cooperation in these fields, the official said.

“In response, Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen agreed with the suggestions,” the assis­tant told reporters after the meeting, adding that Hun Sen also thanked Myanmar for granting scholarships to Cambo­dian Buddhist monks to study in Myanmar.

Meanwhile, the prime minister said the two countries needed to fur­ther strengthen their bilateral cooperation in the frameworks of Ay­eyawady-Chao Phraya- Mekong Economic Cooperation Strategy (ACMECS), Cambodia- Laos-Myanmar-Vietnam (CLMV) cooperation, Greater Mekong Sub-region cooperation, and ASEAN.

Trade volumes between the two countries are still relatively small. On the tourism side, 11,441 My­anmar visitors came to Cambodia in the first 11 months of 2016, a 43-per­cent rise year-on-year, ac­cording to a Cambodian tourism data.

Htin Kyaw made the four-day state visit to Cambodia early this month at the invitation of King Norodom Sihamoni. He concluded his trip last Monday after visiting the famed Angkor archaeo­logical park in northwest­ern Siem Reap province.
