British Prime Minister's Trade Envoy Lord Puttnam will visit Cambodia from March 4 to 7 to strengthen bilateral trade and investment relations, according to a press statement from the British Embassy here on Monday.
"I am delighted to visit Cambodia for the first time as David Cameron's Trade Envoy to understand more about trade and investment environment in Cambodia," Lord Puttnam said in the statement. "I wish to boost commercial, educational, cultural and political relations between our two kingdoms."
During his visit, Lord Puttnam will call on Prime Minister Hun Sen, Education Minister Hang Choun Naron, and Commerce Minister Sun Chanthol, to discuss business and education opportunities and challenges.
He is due to meet British business representatives and will host a film screening of 'The Killing Fields' at Meta House.
Lord Puttnam, an Oscar-winning film producer, has been trade envoy to Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos and Burma since November 2012.
U.K. is the fourth largest investor in Cambodia. According to the report of the Council for the Development of Cambodia, Cambodia had received the U.K.'s promised investment of 2.4 billion U.S. dollars in the last two decades.
The two-way trade volume was valued at 742 million U.S. dollars last year and is expected to reach 1 billion U.S. dollars this year.
