HANOI, Aug 27 — Malaysian Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad today advised Malaysians doing business around the world to be “clean and respected” businessmen and investors.
He said Malaysian businessmen are doing well and are respected around the world.
“We must maintain that (respected businessmen status) by doing business properly.
“We know (that) one of the problems we face when doing business in other countries is corruption. The temptation to corrupt is very strong, but please avoid that.
