Visoth spoke at a public forum on macroeconomic management and the Law on Finance for 2023 on Wednesday (Jan 25).

In this regard, Visoth also mentioned what Cambodian prime minister pointed out that Cambodia must be independent and develop its competitiveness. When Cambodia strives for equal competition without the need for favor, Cambodia becomes a self-reliant state, Visoth added.
