Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen has recalled India’s key contribution to the reconstruction and development of Cambodia, and encouraged further enhancement of the relations and cooperation between both nations.

While presiding over the official handover ceremony of 325,000 doses of Covishield (AZ) vaccine from India to Cambodia under the Quad Vaccine Partnership, held here at the Peace Palace this morning, Samdech Techo Hun Sen expressed his gratitude to the Republic of India, a compassionate friend of Cambodia.

India’s presence since 1981 after the end of the Khmer Rouge regime has made significant contributions to Cambodia’s socio-economic recovery through humanitarian assistance, support in trade and culture, as well as financial lending in both bilateral and multilateral frameworks, he said.

As a result, he stressed, Cambodia-India relations in terms of socio-economy, trade and investment have grown remarkably, albeit with slight declines during the spread of COVID-19.

“Whilst the spread of COVID-19 has subsided, and we have very well managed the COVID-19 situation, I would like to encourage further strengthening of friendship, promotion of cooperation and strengthening of relations between Cambodia and the members of the Quad Initiative, especially between Cambodia-India in terms of trade, investment, information technology, relaxation of travel requirements and connection through direct flights, and development of tourism,” underlined Samdech Techo Hun Sen.
