Thailand will send its observers for the forthcoming general elections in Cambodia in July.
The commitment was made by newly appointed Thai Ambassador to Cambodia H.E. Panyarak Poolthup while paying a courtesy call on Cambodian Permanent Deputy Prime Minister and Acting Minister in charge of the Office of the Council of Ministers (OCM) H.E. Bin Chhin in Phnom Penh this morning.
The intention was warmly welcomed by H.E. Bin Chhin, said Mr. Ek Tha, Deputy Director of the OCM’s Press Department, stressing that many countries have voiced their support to the election process in Cambodia.
On the bilateral relations, he added, H.E. Bin Chhin spoke highly of the good cooperation between the two neighbouring countries, particularly in the fields of economy, trade, investment, and tourism.
According to Mr. Ek Tha, the two-way trade between Cambodia and Thailand in 2017 reached more than US$6 billion, a year-on-year increase of 10 percent. For the first four months of this year, the trade volume between both nations was recorded at over US$2.4 billion.
Cambodia and Thailand have been committed to boost their trade exchange up to US$15 billion by 2020.
