Thai bourse grants sports development award


BANGKOK, November 16, 2015 - The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) honors and encourages philanthropic actions of individuals and organizations through its annual "Social Recognition Project" via SET-sponsored awards covering seven areas. This year's award for the Football History Association has been granted to Nipon Malanon and Prasit Peingbangyang for their outstanding works and contributions to the football profession in Thailand.
 
SET President Kesara Manchusree said that this year the awards granted to two  football coaches -- Nipon Malanon and Prasit Peingbangyang -- were to recognize the outstanding endeavor and dedication in coaching youth football players, both building strong physical and mental health, to help strengthening communities and immunizing society. At today's event, SET granted THB 2 million to the Football History Association to support their sports promotion activities, and football professionals whose contributions were beneficial to the society. This underlines SET's commitment to promote good citizenship, leading towards a sustainable society.

Juta Tingsabhat, vice chairman of the Football History Association, said that  the association has continuously communicated football history information and statistics to build football popularity in order to develop good mentality and discipline for life. Both Nipon Malanon and Prasit Peingbangyang have been highly recognized and have built good reputation to the football profession in Thailand by dedicating themselves to community youth football coaching voluntarily. This was contributable to the society.

These two awards are part of the awards in seven areas, selected by seven  organizations and is one of SET's social activity projects. SET has recently granted five awards covering the award from Sugree Charoensook which has been
granted to Narong  Prangcharoen, a Thai composer of classical music with international acclaim, who has dedicated more than 12 years to enhancing the standard of classical music composition in Thailand and building reputation for Thailand; the award from the Population and Community Development Association (PDA) has just been granted to "Neon Kho Community Organization Development Institute"  (Rural university, in Rayong province, the eastern part of Thailand) with a remarkable work in developing rural communities in Rayong, coaching villagers to rely on themselves under Sufficiency Economy philosophy, a path towards sustainability.

The award from the Duang Prateep Foundation has been granted to Somsak Eamsaard, a community activist who has dedicated more than 40 years to fighting with drugs and drug-related problems; the awards from the Thai Library Association has been granted to Chaveelak Boonyakanchana and Kanjani Thiradejh to honor their efforts and dedication in continuously developing library projects and enhancing reading habit in remote areas, while the education development award  has been granted to Supit Chaimongkol, an educator, to value his dedication in empowering youth in the hill tribe villages on education.

The selection is in process for the the Vimuttayalaya Foundation, and the  results will be announced on November, 20.

SE Asia Stocks-Most fall after outflows, Paris attacks


Most Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Monday, with stocks in the Philippines suffering the worst drop in nearly five weeks as Friday's attacks in Paris further fuelled foreign selloffs in emerging markets.
 
The Philippines' key stock index  .PSI  dropped 1.8 percent, the worst single-day fall since Oct. 13. Twenty eight out of 30 stocks measured by the index ended down on the day, led by Globe Telecom Inc  GLO.PS  and Energy Development Corp  EDC.PS .

"It's a combination of the recently announced earnings results, valuation concerns and recent events," said Manila-based Jason Bibit of Regina Capital.
    
"We also have speculation over the timing of the Fed's rate hike weighing on emerging markets. The PSEi is more prone to wilder swings since it has been more expensive than its peers in the last couple of years," he said.

The Philppines' bourse said foreign investors sold shares for a fifth day worth 731.74 million pesos ($15.53 million), taking their net selling so far this year to 51.94 billion pesos ($1.10 billion).

Malaysia  .KLSE  and Indonesia  .JKSE  also posted a net outflow worth 219 million ringgit ($49.99 million) and 425.84 billion rupiah ($31.03 million), respectively, stock exchange and Thomson Reuters data showed.
   
 Singapore's index  .STI  extended its slides for a seventh day to the lowest close since Oct. 6. Vietnam's index  .VNI  eased 0.3 percent after two days of gains.
   
 Bucking the trend, Thai SET index  .SETI  recovered after an early fall and finished up 0.5 percent, with domestic funds seen buying shares, brokers said.

ASEAN  ANALYSIS

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
