MANILA - Nationalism is a challenge to businessmen who seek to expand on the regional level in Southeast Asia, AirAsia CEO Tony Fernandes said.

Fernandes, who was in Manila last week for the ASEAN Summit, said he was pushing for AirAsia's 100-percent ownership in all its units in the region to cut costs.
