PHNOM PENH, June 24 (Xinhua) -- A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed on Thursday by China and Cambodia to further strengthen the cooperation on road and bridge and other infrastructure development.

Speaking at the ceremony, Tram Iv Tek said the signing of the MOU reflects "our two countries will further strengthen and develop the cooperation on road and bridge infrastructure, information exchange and experience sharing."

Tram Iv Tek also said that the construction of road and bridge will help to promote the economic and social development of the Royal Government and its integration into the regional economy, as well as the poverty reduction.

He, at the same time, thanked Chinese government for its substantial assistance to help Cambodia in road, bridge and other infrastructure development, as well as the training of human resources. "So far, China has built three bridges and 1,500 km long roads for Cambodia, worth nearly 1 billion U.S. dollars. Cambodian people and the Government will not forget China's help," he added.

Gao Hongfeng said China and Cambodia have developed a bilateral and multilateral cooperation in various fields on the basis of mutual trust and mutual support. The economic and trade cooperation between the two countries have strengthened and developed rapidly in recent years, especially in transport cooperation.
