South Korea’s trade ministry said Monday it has held the first joint committee meeting with Cambodia after their free trade agreement (FTA) took effect and discussed the progress of the deal and ways to cooperate in the global supply chain.

Trade Minister Cheong In-kyo met his Cambodian counterpart, Cham Nimul, in Seoul to review the achievements of the FTA, as well as ways to further broaden ties, according to the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy.
