The Ambassador commended the Royal Government of Cambodia for taking the right and timely measures to combat Covid-19, maintaining economic and social stability and better controlling the spread of the epidemic.

H.E Anatoly Borovik also said that seeing the potential of Cambodia, many Russian companies, both large and medium-sized, are interested and looking for opportunities to invest and do business in Cambodia. In this regard, the Ambassador believes that in the future, the bilateral trade volume between the two countries will gradually increase.
