PHNOM PENH, Sept. 10 (Xinhua): Cambodian Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen announced that the China-ASEAN dialogue relations have brought about development in all fields and prosperity for the nations and the people of Asean and China.

He made the remarks during the opening session of the 18th China-Asean Expo via videoconference.

Hun Sen expressed his pleasure and congratulations to the 30th anniversary of the establishment of China-Asean dialogue relations.

He said the resounding success achieved during the past 30 years has become concrete foundation for Asean and China in laying out a great path and creating new opportunities for achieving a shared prosperous and inclusive future.

"Going forward, I am of the view that China and Asean must continue working together in the fight against and overcoming Covid-19 pandemic so as to sustain socio-economic activities and people's livelihood," Hun Sen said.

He added that the fight against this global pandemic requires solidarity, trust, joint planning as well as action in a prudent manner under a multilateral mechanism with respect for international law and sovereignty of each country.

"In addition, China-Asean must continue promoting cooperation in all sectors, especially finance and trade, in order to accelerate the socio-economic recovery in the aftermath of the Covid-19 crisis through widening the openness of market and flows of free trade, as well as facilitation of investment flows," he said.

Meanwhile, Hun Sen extended his deep gratitude to the government and the people of China for the assistance to Cambodia through all forms of supports, including Covid-19 treatment techniques, medical equipment, and COVID-19 vaccines.

"At the same time, I highly commend the government and the people of China for the active participation and its leading role in the fight against the COVID-19 at the global level, via the production and distribution of vaccines, provision of medical equipment as well as experience-sharing on prevention, care and treatment for the COVID-19 patients," he said.

The 18th China-Asean Expo is being held online and offline in Nanning, capital of south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, from Sept. 10 to 13 under the theme "Sharing Opportunities Created by the New Land-Sea Corridor, Building the China-Asean Community with a Shared Future".
