The conference was held in the context that Vietnam-Cambodia friendship and cooperation are developed well with good results. Regular visits made by senior leaders of the two countries, especially the recent official visit by PM Nguyễn Tấn Dũng to Cambodia, and the agreements achieved between the ministries and sectors over the past time are vivid evidences for the Vietnam-Cambodia traditional relationship under the motto "good neighborhood, traditional friendship, comprehensive cooperation, long-term stability" agreed by the two countries’ top leaders.

Addressing the conference, Deputy PM Nguyễn Sinh Hùng confirmed that more than ever, Vietnam and Cambodia should further maintain, strengthen and promote their comprehensive cooperation in all fields to build up the two countries’ border area of political stability and socio-economic prosperity, meeting the local people’s demand, and contributing to the two countries’ common targets of construction and development.
