Prime Minister Phạm Minh Chính delivered this statement at the 2023 ASEAN Business and Investment Summit (ASEAN BIS) which took place in Jakarta, Indonesia on Monday. PM Chính said countries should work together to improve institutions through standardising and harmonising investment and business regulations in ASEAN, simplifying procedures by digital transformation and promptly removing the businesses' problems. He added that ASEAN was also a bright spot in economic growth, with a growth rate of 5.6 per cent in 2022.
