“I see Cambodia as a promising market for Sukhoi Superjet aircraft. Its economy is growing, passenger traffic of Southeast Asia is increasing dramatically and performance demonstrated by Sukhoi Superjet aircraft confirms that the liner is well-suited for this country,” Nikiforov said after a meeting of the commission.
Moreover, the parties discussed investments in development of MRO network for KamAZ trucks, their upgrade and the possibilities for delivering more new KamAZ trucks, which are among the most popular ones in Cambodia. The parties also discussed other areas of cooperation, including high-tech equipment.
Speaking of possibility of Russian and Cambodian businessmen making payments in rubles, Deputy prime minister of Cambodia, co-Chairman of the Russian-Cambodian intergovernmental commission Hor Namhong, said that he sees no obstacles for it, but this matter must be discussed by the businessmen. “When Russian businessmen visit Cambodia, they may discuss this matter with their Cambodian colleagues,” he said.
