Long Beach Mayor Forges Closer Ties With Phnom Penh

Long Beach is the second-busiest port in the United States after Los Angeles and is home to more than 20,000 Cambodian-Americans.

Washington, D.C – A delegation from the Californian city of Long Beach led by its mayor has made a four-day visit to Cambodia to strengthen trade and cultural ties with its sister city of Phnom Penh.

The delegation, led by Mayor Robert Garcia, met with several government officials, including the commerce minister and minister of transport.

“Mayor Garcia is visiting to renew the sister city relationship between Long Beach and Phnom Penh, first signed in 1993,” the US Embassy in Phnom Penh said on its Facebook page. “This is the first time a sitting Long Beach mayor has visited Cambodia! Together, Long Beach and Phnom Penh celebrate the people-to-people ties, as well as the growing trade ties, between our two countries.”
