Hor Nam Hong, Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, highly appreciated the fair and said Cambodia would do its best to attract Vietnamese investment in the country.

During the first eight months of this year, bilateral trade was worth US$1.2 billion, compared with $1.1 billion in 2007.

It is expected to reach $1.3 billion by the end of the year and $2 billion by 2010, he said. — VNS
