“Investors from Guangxi Province of the People’s Republic of China and Cambodian investors signed 21 projects worth US$370.

“The signing ceremony was held on the night of 7 April 2008 at the Inter-Continental Hotel with the attendance of Senior Minister and Minister of Commerce Dr. Cham Prasidh, the Chinese Ambassador in Cambodia, and many other delegates from Guangxi.

“The delegation leader Mr. Guo Shengkun [郭声琨] said that the signing between Guangxi and Cambodia shows now an even closer relationship and cooperation between Cambodia and Guangxi.

“Senior Minister and Minister of Commerce Dr. Cham Prasidh expressed his great satisfaction during the signing ceremony between the investors of Guangxi and of Cambodia.

“Officials of the Ministry of Commerce said that the signing ceremony between the investors of Cambodia and of Guangxi province was for 21 projects worth US$370 million. He continued that the cooperation in these 21 projects focuses on agriculture, tourism, handicrafts, hydroelectricity, and industry.

“Dr. Cham Prasidh went on to say that Guangxi was selected for the exhibition of ASEAN this year, because the city of Nanning is located close to the ASEAN region, therefore it is easy to facilitate the transportation of goods between the ASEAN region and Nanning.

“Dr. Cham Prasidh said that besides the relations of commerce and culture, Guangxi has also given presents to the Royal Government of Cambodia, like when a delegation from Guangxi came to Cambodia, they brought 30 computers and 10 escalators for our country.

“Dr. Cham Prasidh expressed his gratitude to the Chinese government, particularly to the province of Guangxi, which handles also economic and cultural cooperation with Prey Veng.” Kampuchea Thmey, Vol.7, #1614, 9.4.2008
