VTV.vn - Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc arrived in Siem Reap, Cambodia on November 23 for the ninth Summit of the Cambodia-Laos-Vietnam (CLV) Development Triangle Area (CLV 9) at the invitation of his Cambodian counterpart, Hun Sen.

The Vietnamese PM was welcomed at Siem Reap International Airport by the heads of the Ministry of Commerce and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of Cambodia, along with representatives from the Vietnamese Embassy and Consulate General in Battambang.

Since its establishment seventeen years ago, the triangle area’s cooperation mechanism has been strengthened ceaselessly, contributing to enhancing links, ensuring security and political stability and promoting poverty reduction and socioeconomic development in the three countries.

The cooperation among Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam has expanded into various fields, from security and diplomacy, transport, industry, trade and investment to agriculture and environmental protection.

At the CLV8 in Vientiane, Laos in 2014, the parties supported Vietnam’s proposal to enlarge the mechanism through promoting the connectivity of the three countries’ whole economies instead of only those of their thirteen border provinces, and pushing for cooperation in the fields of telecommunications, electricity, tourism and banking.

PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc is scheduled to meet his Cambodian and Lao counterparts, Hun Sen and Thongloun Sisoulith, and to take part in the CLV9 in the afternoon of the same day.

The summit is expected to issue a joint statement on the connectivity of the three economies, among others. A list of fifteen priority projects will also be tabled for discussion.
