Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cambodia, has expressed his high appreciation for the visit by Chinese President H.E. Xi Jinping to Cambodia, scheduled to be on Oct. 13-14, 2016.
At the graduation ceremony of the Royal University of Law and Economics held here this morning, Samdech Techo Hun Sen said the 28 documents to be signed during H.E. Xi Jinping’s visit will promote more cooperation between the two nations in terms of trade, tourism, investment, especially agro-product sectors.
The Chinese president’s forthcoming visit will help Cambodia achieve her target of attracting at least 0.001 percent of the 1.3 billion Chinese people to visit the Kingdom and boost the bilateral trade up to US$5 billion next year, he said.
China’s promise to increase her purchase of Cambodian rice from 100,000 to 200,000 tons a year is another help for Cambodia, he underlined.
This will be the second visit of H.E. Xi Jinping to Cambodia since 2009 when he was a vice president.
Last year, the Cambodia-China bilateral trade reached US$4.4 billion, and it is expected to rise to US$5 billion in 2017.
