DPA – August 12, 2008

Phnom Penh – A US delegation headed by World Trade Organization (WTO) expert Christina Sevilla is in Cambodia for bilateral trade talks, the US embassy said Tuesday.

The US embassy statement said US-Cambodian trade was valued at 2.6 billion dollars last year, and that figure was expected to reach 3 billion dollars this year.

Sevilla is director for inter-governmental affairs and public liaison at the Office of the US Trade Representative, which falls under the executive office of the US president, and is also responsible for WTO issues.

Sevilla was scheduled to meet with Cambodian Commerce Minister Cham Prasidh Wednesday. The embassy statement did not say when her official visit was scheduled to end but said that it was aimed at furthering economic ties between the two nations.

Cambodia took its place in the WTO in 2004.
