Hun Sen, Vietnamese PM Sign Deals on Road, Drugs Fight
The Cambodia Daily | 26 April 2017
Prime Minister Hun Sen on Tuesday signed off on cooperation deals with his Vietnamese counterpart, including a new expressway linking the two countries.
Mr. Hun Sen and Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc met at the premier’s Peace Palace in Phnom Penh to sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on numerous projects.
The most significant of the pacts was a new expressway linking Phnom Penh to Ho Chi Minh City via the border city of Bavet. There have been past discussions about the proposed 167-km toll road, but this marked the first time the two governments put pen to paper agreeing to cooperate in its construction.
