According to incomplete statistics, there are at least 20,000 Zhejiang businessmen doing business in Cambodia, they let Zhejiang manufacturing throughout Cambodia. Kampuchea is an important country that China promotes the "one belt and one way" construction. Under the traction of "one belt and one road", the cooperation between Zhejiang and Kampuchea is becoming more and more close. "The chamber of Commerce will receive a large number of Zhejiang enterprises visiting Kampuchea every year." Shi Yongping said that the two sides have great potential for cooperation in international production capacity cooperation, economic and trade investment, infrastructure interconnection and other fields.
