Cambodia and Indonesia on Wednesday signed an agreement on visa exemption to boost tourism flow between the two countries.

After signing the agreement with the visiting Marty Natalegawa, Indonesian foreign minister, Hor Namhong, Cambodia's Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said the visa exemption will pave the way for larger flow of tourists from Indonesia to Cambodia while Cambodian people will be able to make faster access to Indonesia.

Marty Natalegawa is making a three-day official visit to Cambodia, during which he will pay courtesy calls on Chea Sim, president of the Senate, Heng Samrin, president of the National Assembly and Prime Minister Hun Sen.

Marty Natalegawa will also be granted a royal audience by King Norodom Sihamoni.

Hor Namhong said his country will look forward to signing more agreements on visa exemptions with all countries in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) as well as in the Asian region and in Europe.

As of today, Cambodia has signed such agreements with most of ASEAN members except Brunei, Myanmar and Thailand.

ASEAN makes up of ten countries including Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
