Cambodia, Timor-Leste Discuss Bilateral Cooperation Promotion

Cambodia and Timor-Leste have discussed the strengthening of bilateral relations and cooperation, particularly in the areas of trade and investment.
The discussion took place between Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cambodia, and H.E. Dr. José Manuel Ramos Horta, President of the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste, at their meeting in New York on Sept. 23, on the sidelines of the 77th Session of the General Debate of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).
Both leaders expressed their strong hope that the bilateral relations between the two countries will be further expanded based on mutual trust even though their economic ties are still limited.
H.E. Dr. José Manuel Ramos Horta said he will pay a visit to Cambodia in the third week of October and during which, the bilateral cooperation, particularly in the fields of trade and agriculture will be boosted.
The president profoundly thanked Samdech Techo Hun Sen for his efforts in coordinating for the Timor-Leste’s membership in ASEAN which would be declared later this year, and the country would become a full member of ASEAN in 2023.
Samdech Techo Hun Sen suggested both sides to consider to form a free trade agreement to promote their trade and investment.
The two leaders also discussed the establishment of direct flights between Cambodia and Timor-Leste to ease the trade exchange and investment.
