Minister appeals for Argentina investors

Cambodian Commerce Minister Pan Sorasak requested that senior Argentinean officials should encourage Argentinean investors and businessmen to look at economic prospects in the Kingdom, according to state-run news agency Agence Kampuchea Presse (AKP).

The request was made during a bilateral meeting between Sorasak and Susana Malcorra, former minister of foreign affairs of Argentina, during the Eleventh World Trade Organization Ministerial Conference (MC11) held in Buenos Aires earlier this week.

According to Sorasak, bilateral trade between the two countries reached $27 million and Cambodia has attracted 10,000 Argentinean tourists. Cambodia is currently the chair of the WTO’s Global Coordination Bureau of the Least Developed Countries (LDCs).
