Cambodian Information Minister Khieu Kanharith said Wednesday that information sector has played a very important role to further enhance ties and cooperation between Cambodia and China, saying that Cambodia is looking forward to broadening information cooperation with China.
"Information sector is a potential and effective way to strengthen and expand economics, trade, politics, social relations, investment, and education between the two countries," he said during the celebration of the fifth anniversary of the Cambodia- China Friendship Radio in Cambodia.
"The ministry is ready to further develop and broaden information sector with China," he said.
The minister highly spoke of the excellent Sino-Cambodian ties, which had been established and fostered by the leaders of the two countries from one generation to another.
"The two countries are friendly neighbors, faithful friends, good brothers, and excellent cooperation partners standing on a win-win principle," said Khieu Kanharith, who is also the spokesman for the Cambodian government.
Chinese Ambassador to Cambodia Bu Jianguo pledged to help broaden information cooperation between the two countries during her diplomatic mission.
"Information sector is vital to help the two countries to deepen the Comprehensive Strategic Partnership of Cooperation and bring closer connection between the peoples of the countries," she said.
At present, the two countries have maintained good relations in information sector. The Cambodian Information Ministry has a good relation with the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television of China, and the country's official news agency Agence Kampuchea Presse (AKP) has closely cooperated with the China's Xinhua News Agency.
In addition, the National Television of Cambodia has also maintained a good cooperation with China's CCTV.
In the near future, the National Television of Cambodia and the China's Yunnan TV will jointly invest in a pay TV with about 70 channels in Cambodia, according to Khieu Kanharith.
