The ABIS, which is ASEAN's premier annual business and investment event, will be held in conjunction with the ASEAN Summit to be hosted by Thailand. It serves as a platform for the business community to engage with ASEAN leaders, business executives, entrepreneurs and key decision-makers who shape and influence ASEAN's economy, the MFA said.

The two-day conference will see government leaders, private sectors and stakeholders from ASEAN and other parts of the world share ideas.
