SET continues "INVESTORY Mobile Exhibition on School" project in 2017 to promote  money savings and financial planning among Thai youth

Bangkok, July 31, 2017 - The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) has been actively promoting the knowledge on money savings and financial planning to the Thai youth via the annual "INVESTORY Mobile Exhibition on School" project, organized for the second year after the success of the launch last year. This year, SET aims to carry out the roadshows in 15 schools expecting to reach 40,000 students  in Bangkok and its vicinity.
SET President Kesara Manchusree said SET places importance on providing  financial literacy to the general public so that we can benefit all sectors of the country in accordance with the SET's vision "To Make the Capital Market 'Work' for Everyone." The exchange has continually instilled the knowledge and know-how among Thai youth via various projects, especially the out-of-classroom learning places which are Maruey Library and INVESTORY, the first investment discovery museum in Thailand. INVESTORY is an interactive self-discovery museum, full of multi-media & digital learning tools as well as investment simulation games to suit today youth's lifestyle.
"In our mobile exhibition, the students will enjoy with several hands on  activities and games, selected from INVESTORY. It's an exciting form of edutainment about financial planning and knowing the value of money which can guide them to be a financial grownup in the future," added Kesara.
The "INVESTORY Mobile Exhibition on School" is a special project consisting of  exhibition, fun activities and knowledge-based simulations of SET's INVESTORY investment discovery museum to enhance knowledge of the youth on money savings and financial planning. This year, there will be roadshows in 15 schools in
Bangkok and greater Bangkok  areas, embracing approximately 40,000 students.

In addition, INVESTORY, jointly with Suan Dusit Poll, conducted a survey on spending behaviors of secondary school students aged between 11-19 years. Out of the total of 300 respondents, over 30 percent said they were interested in part-time jobs after school hours for extra money; and over 40 percent said they had saved money regularly. The outcome also reflected that today's youth placed  more and more importance on money savings and financial planning.

For more information, interested students can visit INVESTORY (free) in the basement of The Stock Exchange of Thailand's office building on Ratchadaphisek road, or visit our website at

SE Asia Stocks-Most fall ahead of econ data; Vietnam at over 9-yr closing high

Most Southeast Asian stock markets ended Monday lower as sentiment turned cautious ahead of a raft of
economic data this week, but Vietnam  .VNI  bucked the trend and closed at its highest in over nine years as realty and
financials firmed up.  

Indonesia is expected to release its July inflation and GDP numbers, Thailand and Philippines their inflation rates for the month, and Malaysia its trade data for June.
Vietnam rose 0.8 percent to post its highest close since Feb. 2008 with Vingroup JSC  VIC.HM  and Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Investment and Development of Vietnam  BID.HM  leading the gains.
Risk assets turned less attractive after North Korea conducted another missile test late on Friday, sparking tension.
Philippine shares  .PSI  cut part losses to end 0.7 percent lower and ended above the 8,000 level for a fourth straight
session. The index is up 2.2 percent on month, its fifth straight monthly gain.
Ayala Land  ALI.PS  fell 2.3 percent to close at its lowest in over a week, while telecom company PLDT Inc  TEL.PS  declined 3.7 percent to hit a near 10-week closing low.
Investors are taking profits after a strong run in the previous week, said Manny Cruz, an analyst with Manila-based
Asiasec Equities Inc.
The Thai index  .SETI  fell 0.3 percent, dragged down by financials such as Kasikornbank  KBANK.BK  and Siam Commercial Bank  SCB.BK .
Thailand's private consumption rose slightly in June but private investment contracted from the previous month, central bank indexes showed on Monday, suggesting economic recovery remains patchy.  
Malaysian shares  .KLSE  fell 0.4 percent, their biggest drop in more than three weeks, with financials figuring among
top losers. The index is 0.2 percent lower on month.
Singapore shares  .STI  closed marginally lower, but posted their seventh straight month of gains. Losses in heavyweights such as Keppel Corp  KPLM.SI  and Singapore Telecommunications STEL.SI  outweighed an 8.4 percent jump in Yangzijiang Shipbuilding Holdings  YAZG.SI .
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  rose 0.2 percent and ended higher for a sixth consecutive month.
Indonesia's annual inflation rate likely eased in July as demand returned to normal after the Eid al-Fitr festival, a
Reuters poll showed on Friday. The data is expected on Aug. 1.
  Market              Current      Previous Close    Pct Move
  Singapore         3329.52          3330.75             -0.04
  Bangkok           1576.08          1581.06             -0.31
  Manila              8018.05          8071.47             -0.66
  Jakarta              5840.939        5831.027            0.17
  Kuala Lumpur 1760.03          1767.08             -0.40

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
