Cambodia and Myanmar have agreed to strengthen ties by focusing on both nations’ tourism and education sectors.

Cambodia’s Prime Minister Hun Sen and Myanmar’s President U Htin Kyaw have discussed establishing tour packages between Cambodia’s Siem Reap and Myanmar’s Bagan.

“He [Mr Htin Kyaw] asked the tourism ministers of both countries to cooperate and organise a tourism package, especially between Siem Reap and Bagan,” Mr Hun Sen’s assistant Eang Sophalleth said after the meeting.

According to Mr Sophalleth, Mr Hun Sen agreed to Myanmar’s suggestion saying that it would improve the cultural awareness between both countries.

The two heads of state also mooted the idea of establishing exchange programs and scholarships but stopped short of solidifying plans.
