Speaking at the event, Nga lauded the diplomat for his tireless dedication to the Vietnam – Cambodia ties over the past three years. Political ties have been ceaselessly strengthened while ties across economy, trade, culture, education, national defence-security have progressed. Two-way trade hit 4.7 billion USD last year, and is forecast to hit 7 – 8 billion USD by 2020.

The two countries successfully organised the Vietnam – Cambodia and Cambodia – Vietnam Friendship Year 2017, the celebration of the 50th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties (June 24, 2017), and the 40th anniversary of the victory of the southwest border defence war (January 7, 2019). People-to-people exchange has also been strengthened, she said.

Nga expressed her belief that in any position, the ambassador will make further contributions to bilateral traditional friendship and comprehensive partnership.
