Chinese Vice Premier Hui Liangyu signed three memorandums of understanding with Deputy Prime Minister Sok An on Thursday as he began a three-day visit to the Kingdom. Ek Tha, deputy director of the Council of Ministers’ press department, said Hui pledged to encourage investors to visit and focus more on Cambodia. “The signings today between the Chinese and Cambodian governments are another step in strengthening the two countries’ cooperation in all fields,” he said. Huawei Technologies, China’s largest private hi-tech enterprise, signed a cooperation agreement with the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications and Cambodian mobile-phone operator CamGSM, Ek Tha said. Hui is slated to leave on Friday.
