Thai bourse joins IMF to hold first "International Capital Markets Conference"  

BANGKOK, November 11, 2015 - The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) has joined hands with the IMF Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (OAP) to organize "International Capital Markets Conference 2015", the first time for the Thai capital market, on November 30 - December 1, 2015 in Bangkok, with the top financiers in the region and forefront experts joining to share knowledge and experiences in fundraising, clearing and settlement system and investment, highlighting collaborations and economics potential in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS).

The unprecedented event aims to enhance capital markets and economic development in GMS, while building collaborations among GMS capital markets. This conference will reinforce SET's strategic direction to synergize and enhance sustainable growth among GMS countries, moving together on the global arena.

SET President Kesara Manchusree said, "This collaboration among SET and the IMF Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific marks an important milestone and underlines SET as a spearhead to develop the GMS capital markets. The event will welcome more than 300 global and regional key stakeholders, consisting of high-level executives from government sectors and central banks, policy makers, multinational executives, foreign fund managers and listed companies' executives from GMS and Asia, as well as international experts to exchange views on fundraising opportunities, investment collaboration and improvement of clearing and settlement systems in order to accelerate regional development among GMS capital markets, responding  to future demand and growth in GMS."

Ministry of Finance Permanent Secretary Somchai Sujjapongse would preside over the opening ceremony and deliver a keynote speech. The event would also be participated by distinguished guests especially the IMF Deputy Managing Director Mitsuhiro Furusawa, Juan Pablo Cordoba, World Federation of Exchanges Chairman, and Robert C. Merton, the 1997 Nobel laureate in economics, to share valuable experiences and discuss the though- provoking phenomena in the region, added Kesara.

IMF Deputy Managing Director Mitsuhiro Furusawa stated "It is a great pleasure for the IMF to co-host with SET, the inaugural International Capital Markets
Conference. Financial linkages have increased greatly across Asia, notwithstanding disruptions during the global financial crisis. Bangkok has
played an important role in this development, especially in GMS. These linkages bring with them not only opportunities?more cross-border risk sharing, deeper
and more liquid capital markets, and more diverse sources of funding?but also risks of sudden capital outflows and volatility."

"In that context, how can we ensure a more stable access to capital, to enable the region to grow in a more sustainable manner? We, at the IMF, are mindful
that financial integration requires long-term investment in financial architecture, robust regulations, and carefully designed safety nets. I look
forward to hearing at this conference an exchange of views among participants, relaying their global expertise to further enhance these financial
interconnections. I would like to welcome you all, and look forward to an active  discussion to support further growth in the region," Furusawa added.

The "International Capital Markets Conference" will be held during November 30 - December 1, 2015 at the Plaza Athenee Royal Meridien Hotel, Bangkok.

Vietnam index dips 0.3 pct, volume near 2-week low

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  .VNI  closed down 0.29 percent on Wednesday in its fourth consecutive fall, with most shares heading south in volatile
trade as investors took money off the table, keeping an eye on the U.S. Federal Reserve rate policy.  
Analysts said investors were concerned over a possible interest rate hike in Fed's meeting next month.
Four of Vietnam's six listed lenders lost ground, including Vietcombank  VCB.HM , the country's second-biggest firm by market value, with a 1.24-percent decline, and BIDV  BID.HM  
that dropped 1.28 percent.
Dairy products maker Vinamilk  VNM.HM  bucked the trend to rise 1.56 percent, hitting a record high of 130,000 dong ($5.81) each.

A total of 95.35 million shares changed hand, the lowest level so far this month. Analysts expect the index to move marginally in the next few sessions.

SE Asia Stocks - Weak on foreign selling, Thai telecoms shares fall

Southeast Asian stock markets mostly fell on Wednesday as a mixed batch of Chinese data pulled Asian stocks lower, with foreign-led selling and losses in banking shares sending the Malaysian index to a more-than-one-week low.   
Kuala Lumpur's composite index  .KLSE  was down 1.2 percent at 1,665.32, its lowest close since Nov. 2. The top two losers were Hong Leong Financial Group  HLCB.KL  and AMMB Holdings  AMMB.KL , declining more than 3 percent each.
Foreign investors sold shares for a second trading day worth a net 274.56 million ringgit ($62.97 million).
In Bangkok, investors took quick profits on telecoms shares, causing a 1.3 percent fall in the country's biggest mobile phone firm, Advanced Info Service  ADVANC.BK , while second-ranked Total Access Communication  DTAC.BK  slid 2.8 percent.
The selling also reflected concerns of a likely higher-than-expected price at a mobile frequency auction as the country's telecoms regulator invited bids for two 1800-MHz frequency licences on Wednesday.  
Most sharemarkets posted outflows on the day, led by Indonesia's  .JKSE  614.4 billion rupiah ($45.18 million).

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
