TOKYO -- An open, rules-based market is essential for rejuvenating the Asian economy, Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha said on Thursday, as the region attempts to shake off the COVID-19 pandemic and overcome supply disruptions stemming from the Russia-Ukraine war.

"We must regenerate economic growth by keeping the market open and inclusive," Prayuth said at Nikkei's Future of Asia conference. "Sustainable economic growth is only possible when we are able to adapt to any disruptions and uncertainties in a timely manner."
