The Cambodian Ministry of Commerce’s Secretary of State Tek Reth Kamrong said during her recent meeting with Russian Ambassador to Cambodia Dmitry Tsvetkov that Cambodia will ask for a third meeting between Cambodia’s working group and the Europe Economy Committee (EEC) via videoconference next July, according to the Khmer Times.

The EAEU is home to 183 million people and represents a combined GDP of about 5 trillion USD. The bloc has five member states – Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan.
