Sun Chanthol laid stress on the road connectivity in Cambodia and briefed his guests on major infrastructure development projects, including the master plan for road infrastructure development, water transport master plan, railway transport plan, logistics master plan and feasibility studies of automated guideway transit (AGT), subway and monorail operating systems.
In the meeting, Cambodia and France announced their joint commitment to further strengthen closer cooperation between Cambodia and AFD.
