Thanh Nien Daily, Vietnam – October 7, 2008

Deputy Prime Minister Pham Gia Khiem and Cambodian counterpart Hor Namhong signed Monday agreements to cooperate in areas of education, agro-forestry and fishery, and culture-sports and tourism.

Under the plans, Vietnam will provide 550 scholarships for Cambodian students to study in Vietnam and build a vocational school in its neighbor’s Mondunkiri Province. 

Cambodia, meanwhile, agrees to expedite the allocation of 100,000 hectares of land for Vietnam to plant rubber trees.

The two neighbors urged for closer collaboration between localities that host UNESCO’s World Heritage sites to boost local tourism industries.

Additionally, the officials also authorized deals to cooperate in fields of health, labor, transport and civil aviation.

The four-day meeting of the Vietnam-Cambodia Joint Committee in central Da Nang City, chaired by Khiem and Namhong, will wrap up today.
