The Vietnamese PM made the statement while joining a virtual dialogue between ASEAN leaders, partners and representatives of the ASEAN Business Advisory Council (ASEAN-BAC) as part of the 36th ASEAN Summit.

The Governments always view businesses as a nucleus of development and prosperity, as well as a force to realize development goals and targets in the building of the ASEAN Community, he said. 

Solutions to support businesses had been put forth during previous meetings of ASEAN leaders, such as removing and reducing tariffs and opening the market, among others.

PM Phuc thanked the ASEAN BAC for its recommendations to ASEAN leaders and agencies to take prompt actions.
