JAKARTA/BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN, June 12 (Bernama-VNA): The Asean Business Advisory Council (ASEAN-BAC) has called for boosting trade and investment with Japan.

Chair of ASEAN-BAC Arsjad Rasjid said the close partnership between Asean and Japan over the past 50 years will accelerate the strengthening of economic integration and the establishment of a free trade area, and enhance competitiveness in the global market.

He said the Asean-Japan partnership will accelerate liberalisation and facilitate trade in goods, services, and investment in the region, Vietnam news agency (VNA) reported.

He added that as an Asean strategic partner, Japan will work together with ASEAN-BAC to create a stronger platform that supports Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) to innovate collectively through technology and adapt to dynamic changes.

"Japan remains a trusted dialogue partner of Asean,” it reported Arsjad said in a statement.

He was leading a ASEAN-BAC delegation on a promotion roadshow to Tokyo.
