Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister Sok An on Tuesday leads a delegation to attend an Asian political meeting held in Kunming, China, where Asian leaders will exchange their views on the poverty reduction strategy and find ways how to improve their cooperation for the mutual benefit of the peoples in the region, said a top Cambodian official.

Tekreth Samrach, deputy minister of the Office of the Council of Ministers, said that leaders who represent about 1,000 parties will take part in the conference, which was organized by the Communist Party of China (CPC) and to be held from July 16 - 18.

"His Excellency Sok An will share Cambodian experiences about its win-win strategy how to bring peace for the country after 30 years of wars," said Tekreth Samrach.

An estimated 30 percent out of the country's total 14 million people live below the poverty line of less than one dollar a day. "We expect to reduce poverty one percent per year thanks to the leadership by the ruling party, Cambodian People's Party, and by 2020 we expect to reduce poverty to below 20 percent," he said.

Cambodia will host the International Conference of Asian Political Parties (ICAPP) in early December, aimed at enhancing exchange and cooperation between the political parties for the benefits of the peoples in the region.
