Indonesia (FN), May 10 – The president of the Cambodian Chamber of Commerce (CCC) and co-chair of the ASEAN Business Advisory Council (ASEAN-BAC) tycoon Kith Meng attended the 19th Dialogue Conference between ASEAN-BAC and ASEAN leaders.

The meeting was made during the visit of Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen and his spouse Bun Rany Hun Sen to the Republic of Indonesia for the 42nd ASEAN Summits and Related Meetings.

On the occasion, they discussed the challenges faced by the private sectors in ASEAN. The ASEAN-BAC presented a report on the recommendations and working progress to the ASEAN leaders, particularly promoting regional economic integration.

The ASEAN-BAC was established in 2001 by the ASEAN Heads of state/government. ASEAN-BAC was set up with the mandate to provide private sector feedback and guidance to boost ASEAN’s efforts towards economic integration. Aside from providing private sector feedback on the implementation of ASEAN economic cooperation, the Council also identifies priority areas for consideration of the ASEAN Leaders. Accordingly, ASEAN-BAC’s activities are primarily focused on reviewing and identifying issues to facilitate and promote economic cooperation and integration.
