PHNOM PENH, Jan. 13 (Xinhua) -- Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen and visiting Vietnamese Premier Nguyen Tan Dung on Monday vowed to further deepen cooperation in economics, trade and tourism for the benefits of the two countries and peoples.
The two premiers made the commitment during a bilateral talk at the Peace Palace in Phnom Penh.
Dung asked Hun Sen to further expand cooperation in air, land, waterway transportation so as to boost economics, trade and tourism.
He proposed to further deepen cooperation with Cambodia in the fields of telecommunications, banking and finance, and agriculture.
"We have already had cooperation in these fields, but we need to further deepen them," he said.
The Vietnamese premier also promised to help construct a stretch of Cambodia's national road No. 78 and agreed to sell 200 megawatts of electric power to Cambodia in dry seasons and buy 100 megawatts back from Cambodia in rainy seasons.
For his part, Hun Sen agreed with Dung's suggestion and said the inter-connectivity in air, land, and water ways are the most important factor to further deepening cooperation between the two neighbors.
Earlier in the day, the two premiers co-chaired the 4th Cambodia-Vietnam Conference on the Investment Promotion, which was attended by some 300 Cambodian and Vietnamese senior officials and business executives.
Dung arrived in Cambodia on Sunday for a three-day working visit. He is also scheduled to pay a courtesy call on King Norodom Sihamoni on Tuesday.
Besides, he attended the inauguration of a Vietnamese Cha Ray Hospital in Phnom Penh and the groundbreaking of a Vietnam-funded bridge in Kandal province.
