Trade links: Thai trade fair to boost relationship

BORDER clashes between Cambodia and Thailand will not prevent a Thai trade fair from taking place in Phnom Penh in May, the Thai ambassador said yesterday through a spokesman for Prime Minister Hun Sen.

Speaking on behalf of both Hun Sen and Thai ambassador Prasas Prasasvinitchai while they were in a meeting yesterday, Eang Sophallet told reporters the Prime Minister fully supported the upcoming trade fair and that he didn’t want the February clashes in Preah Vihear province to disrupt business. The sentiment expressed by Hun Sen was a continuation of statements he made in February when the clashes first broke out.

During his farewell meeting with Prime Minister Hun Sen, outgoing Thai ambassador Prasas Prasasvinitchai said that the Diamond Island expo from May 19 to 22 would boost trade relations.
