Vietnam and Cambodia are planning to collaborate on more than 20 projects worth more than US$17 million.
Vietnamese officials say the joint projects, which will run until 2020, cover the areas of agricultural science and technology, quarantine, forestry and seafood.
There will be strengthened collaboration on controlling disease outbreaks along the countries' shared border as well as forest management and timber trading.
Vietnam has agreed to help fund an aquating breeding development project and to help build a seafood research institute in Kampot province.
Cambodia has agreed to a deal to grow rubber and industrial trees on its land.
