Chiong assures “friendly business climate” after father’s indictment

“As local chief executive, we have to be steadfast on promoting a friendly business climate (especially for future investors),” she told the media earlier.

Petronas happened to be a competitor of Pryce Gas, and both are among the largest multi-national companies in the country engaged in the petroleum industry.
