Financial Secretary John Tsang started his visit to Cambodia today by meeting officials and attending a business luncheon in Phnom Penh.
 
He met Senior Minister and Minister of Commerce Cham Prasidh and they agreed to look for more business opportunities on the import-export, financial and infrastructure fronts between their jurisdictions. The minister thanked Mr Tsang for helping Cambodia seek a drastic reduction in tariffs from developed countries during the World Trade Organisation Ministerial Conference in 2005.
 
Mr Tsang then gave a speech to update the Cambodian business community on the latest situation and business advantages in Hong Kong at a luncheon co-organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council and the Hong Kong Economic & Trade Office in Singapore.
 
He later held a meeting with Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economy & Finance Keat Chhon, during which a Hong Kong business delegation explained their business operations. Both sides said they wished to strengthen bilateral trade links.
 
Mr Tsang also met Prime Minister Hun Sen and thanked him for Cambodia's support for an ASEAN-Hong Kong Free Trade Agreement. The Prime Minister said the agreement will be important not only to Hong Kong, but also ASEAN nations.
