For Asean to emerge as a more prominent organisation and assert its position as an economic power, it must stand together and speak with one voice, especially when dealing with other big economies in the global stage, said Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

The Prime Minister said that during a dialogue session at the Asean Business and Investment Summit held in Bangkok, Thailand in conjunction with the 35th Asean Summit on Saturday.

Dr Mahathir was also asked how long the trade war between the United States and China will last as it was affecting global economy, he replied that it could last as long as five years.
