In particular, Vietnam has invested in agriculture, finance-banking and forestry across 25 Cambodian provinces and cities, said a representative of the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry's Can Tho branch (VCCI Can Tho) at a press briefing to introduce “Vietnam-Cambodia Business Forum” and “Caravan – A Journey Connecting Vietnamese and Cambodian Businessmen”.
With many advantages of the long borderline and multiple international border gates, Vietnam has a significant potential to boost border trade cooperation with Cambodia.
The Mekong Delta alone has four provinces, including Long An, Dong Thap, An Giang, and Kien Giang, sharing the border with Cambodia, allowing Vietnam to establish collaboration in trade, agriculture, tourism, as well as information and technology with Cambodia, according to the VCCI Can Tho representative.
The “Vietnam-Cambodia Business Forum” and “Caravan – A Journey Connecting Vietnamese and Cambodian Businessmen” are scheduled to take place from December 5 to 8 in Cambodia, in a bid to create opportunities for entrepreneurs from the two countries to meet and discuss further cooperation, while promoting economic, trade and investment cooperation between Vietnam and Cambodia.
The Caravan event is expected to attract 200 participants from 20 Vietnamese provinces and cities.
