VGP - The Viet Nam-Cambodia Friendship Association and the Cambodia-Viet Nam Friendship Association on July 29 issued a joint statement, strengthening friendly neighborliness, traditional friendship and long-term cooperation between the two nations.

The two associations promise to convene a meeting every two years to review the implementation of the agreements and discuss future activities

Nearly 200 delegates from the two associations and representatives from six Cambodian and Vietnamese border provinces reviewed their joint work over the past four years at a conference held in the Cambodian province of Svay Rieng. 

Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister and Chairwoman of the Cambodia–Viet Nam Friendship Association Men Sam An said ties between the two peoples, particularly border two-way trade, have become closer. 

They agreed to continue realising agreement signed in December 2015 to raise public awareness of bilateral friendship and comprehensive partnership, thwarting plots to divide bilateral friendship by hostile forces, and contributing to strengthening mutual understanding and trust. 

Two sides promised to convene a meeting every two years to review the implementation of the agreements and discuss future activities. 

Chairman of the Viet Nam–Cambodia Friendship Association (VCFA) Vu Mao said the VCFA established the Viet Nam–Cambodia entrepreneurs’ club in Ho Chi Minh City, helped offer health check-ups and treatment to the poor in Cambodia, as well as provide support for Cambodian students in Viet Nam. 

Since 2009, the two friendship associations have conducted a number of visits by businesspeople, leaders of border localities, and former Vietnamese volunteers.
