Vietnamese Prime Minister Phan Van Khai will visit Cambodia from March 6 to 8, aiming

to consolidate cooperation between the two countries, a Vietnamese Foreign Ministry

spokesman said on February 23.

During the visit, at the invitation of Prime Minister Hun Sen, the two leaders will

discuss measures to accelerate the implementation of agreements signed by the governments.

They will also exchange views on regional and international issues of common concern,

the spokesman said. Since Vietnam and Cambodia established diplomatic relations in

June 1967, the two countries have seen considerable improvements in trade and economic

ties. The two-way trade stood at US$400 million in the first nine months of 2005,

compared with $500 million in 2004 and $186 million in 2001, according to the Vietnamese

Trade Ministry.
