Phnom Penh, 17 October 2021 (TDI): On Thursday, Cambodia’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister in charge of the Office of the Council of Ministers, Bin Chhin, received Pablo Kang, the Australian Ambassador to Cambodia. The meeting convened in Phnom Penh where the officials discussed ways to strengthen bilateral relations between the two countries.

Ambassador Kang briefly updated the Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister on Canberra’s cordial partnership with Phnom Penh during the discussion.

The Australian Ambassador further maintained that Australia would continue supporting Cambodia in terms of human resource development through offering scholarship programs to its people.
