Hun Sen in Singapore to lobby for tax breaks

PRIME Minister Hun Sen left yesterday for a three-day visit to Singapore, where he is expected to discuss measures aimed at increasing Cambodian exports to the city state.

The premier is scheduled to hold talks with Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and President SR Nathan, according to Hun Sen’s personal adviser, Sry Thomarong. Hun Sen will lobby the Singaporean leaders for tax reductions that could facilitate the export of Cambodian agricultural products, Sry Thomarong said.

Foreign Affairs Minister Hor Namhong and Commerce Minister Cham Prasidh accompanied the premier on the trip, which is scheduled to conclude tomorrow, Sry Thomarong said.

Earlier this month, officials close to the premier were mum on speculation that Hun Sen was heading to Singapore for medical treatment related to his left eye, which he lost in fighting in 1975.
