Maritime route linking Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand planned

Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia plan to establish a maritime route that links the islands near Thailand's Trat province with Cambodia’s Sihanoukville province and Vietnam’s southern Kien Giang province, according to the Bangkok Post.

It is aimed to push for the maritime route linking the three countries, which will create a market under the concept of "One Market, Three Destinations", the Government News has reported.

It also aims to boost trade, investment, tourism and MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Exhibitions) tourism between the three countries.
