The prime minister will travel to China for the ceremony
PHNOM PENH—Prime Minister Hun Sen will travel to China next month to preside over the signing of a free trade agreement (FTA) between the two countries, a senior official announced on July 8.
Vongsey Vissoth, standing secretary of state at the Ministry of Economy and Finance, made the announcement during a press conference at the ministry.
This announcement came as the two countries’ working groups last month concluded their negotiation, having settled the remaining issues in the section on market access for goods and services.
Vissoth said that the two countries’ trade ministers will officially announce the FTA in the next few days while Prime Minister Hun Sen will travel to China to oversee the signing ceremony.
