PHNOM PENH, Nov. 13 – Cambodia has welcomed the visa exemption agreement with Vietnam which was signed during a visit to Vietnam by Prime Minister Hun Sen early this month.
The agreement, expected to come into effect early next year, will create an important impetus for the non-smoking industry’s development as well as other services of both countries, Cambodian Tourism Minister Thong Khun told reporters on November 12.
The agreement will also help increase the number of those who travel cross Cambodia-Vietnam border gates for tourism, trade and health treatment, according to the Cambodian official.
In addition, the agreement contributes to facilitating other services like transport, restaurants and hotels, generating more jobs for people of both countries, particularly in tourist sites and common border areas. (PNA/VNA)
