Date: 2012-10-18

Cambodia may set up a consulate in Xiamen in the near future, and the Cambodian port city of Kampot is expected to establish sister city relationship with Xiamen, reported Haixi Morning News on Wednesday.

Cham Prasidh, Cambodian Minister of State and Minister of Trade and Commerce, led a delegation to visit Xiamen and participated in the 16th CIFIT in September this year.

During a short talk with Hong Chengzong, Director of the Xiamen Municipal Foreign Affairs Office, on 11th September, Cham Prasidh said he will promote Cambodia by setting up a consulate in Xiamen, and actively boosting friendly exchanges between Kampot and Xiamen.

Cham Prasidh, whose Chinese name is Huang Yudehu has always hoped to seek his roots in Fujian Province after he learned that his ancestors emigrated to Cambodia from Fujian in the late 19th century. Cham Prasidh visited Jiang Xiatang Huang Ancestral Hall in Siming District and Huangshi Ancestral Hall in Xinxu Town, Xiang'an District during his stay in Xiamen.
