Talks aimed at forging a trilateral trade deal with Laos, Vietnam

Officials from Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam are discussing an agreement that aims to boost trade activities and the movement of goods among the 13 provinces included in the Cambodia-Laos-Vietnam (CLV) Development Triangle Area.

The three-day talks, which wrap up today in Vietnam, aim to finalise the trade agreement that encompasses four Cambodian provinces (Ratanakiri, Stung Treng, Mondulkiri and Kratie), four Laotian provinces (Attapeu, Salavan, Sekong and Champasak), and five Vietnamese provinces (Kon Tum, Gia Lai, Dak Lak, Dak Nong and Binh Phuoc).

This is the fourth round of negotiations since 2015.
