Cambodia and the United States have expressed their optimism over their bilateral cooperation in the field of labour.

During their meeting here at the Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training yesterday afternoon, H.E. Ith Samheng, Minister of Labour and Vocational Training, and U.S. Ambassador to Cambodia H.E. W. Patrick Murphy expected that the labour cooperation between the two countries would see more progress as their diplomatic ties improved.

Both sides also underlined their willingness to strengthen cooperation between the two nations not only in the field of labour, but also in the area of trade.
