Malaysia is the country of honor at this year's expo.

The region needs to look for alternative sources to support growth as exports to Europe and the U.S. are affected, Najib said.

Environmental protection and sustainable development are critical issues that will be addressed at the expo, said Najib, who urged for more efforts in developing clean energy and reducing fossil fuel emissions.

ASEAN is made up of Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
