In Brief: New crossing with Laos could boost trade

CAMBODIA has agreed to a deal with Laos that will allow a fixed number of vehicles to cross the border each day, a move aimed at boosting trade. Minister of Tourism Thong Khon said that 40 properly insured vehicles would be allowed to enter Cambodia each day from Laos. "We hope that more vehicles will cross from Laos into Cambodia in the future, and that there will be more tourists as well," he said at a press conference at the ministry.  The only legal crosssing between the two countries is at Stung Treng. Last year, Cambodia signed a memorandum of understanding with Vietnam that allows the entry of 150 transport vehicles into the Kingdom each day.
