Four Asean stock exchanges - Bursa Malaysia (BMB), The Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE), Singapore Exchange (SGX) and the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) – are making progress toward achieving interconnectivity as part of the broader Asean Exchanges Collaboration.

The four exchanges have appointed SunGard as the technology provider of the business-to-business intra-Asean cross-border order routing and trading platform that will electronically connect the markets of participating exchanges and allow investors and broker members to access multiple markets via a single connection. The platform is expected to go "live" by the end of the first quarter of 2012.

Dato' Tajuddin Atan, Chief Executive Officer of Bursa Malaysia said: "The Asean trading link is an important development in enabling our markets to create greater ASEAN investment mobility amongst intermediaries namely the broker members and information vendors. This forms an integral part of the various initiatives in achieving the overall objective of the Asean Exchanges Collaboration to promote the growth of the Asean capital market."

"The Asean trading link will facilitate global trades especially for retail investors seeking a bigger exposure in a fast growing Asean market," said Mr Hans B. Sicat, President and CEO of PSE.

Magnus Bocker, CEO of SGX, said, "We are pleased with the development of the ASEAN trading link which will enable investors to easily trade across markets in this region, the combined GDP growth of which is expected to average 6% annually across the Asean countries over the next 5 years. We expect this link will drive greater liquidity and investment mobility in Asean."

Charamporn Jotikasthira, President of SET said, "Signing the agreement with SunGard today is another milestone achieved for the Asean link project. However, technology alone is not sufficient to make this project a success. The Asean Exchanges will work together on marketing initiatives to promote the Asean link and the Asean asset class.

Among others, there will be a networking event to promote cross-border partnerships among Asean brokers in Phuket in July."

Asean Affairs says this is an important step and it comes from the private sector. The public sector, namely the Asean Secretariat should follow this lead an start connecting Asean.

Asean Exchanges is a collaboration of seven exchanges from Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. The collaboration aims to promote the growth of the ASEAN capital market by driving cross-border collaboration, streamlining access to ASEAN, creating ASEAN centric products, and implementing targeted promotional initiatives. The result is more ASEAN investment opportunities to more people as well as bringing greater liquidity to members of the collaboration.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
