Thai bourse grants social recognition awards for musical and sport talents

BANGKOK, October 7, 2014 - The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) honors and encourages philanthropic activities of individuals and organizations through its annual Social Recognition Project to honor them as role models and inspiration to the future generations.
This year's music talent from the Sugree Charoensook Award is granted to Tanis  Sriglindee for his musical talent in initiating Thai folk flute's incredible
techniques and varieties to preserve Thai cultural heritage. The Samrerng Chaiyong Awards were given to Niwat Sriswat for his 15 years of outstanding work in coaching community youth football and Nimae Nidehah for his football coaching in Pattani for two decades.
These two awards are part of the total of seven areas of recognition selected by  seven organizations, part of SET's corporate social responsibility projects.

SET Chairman Sathit Limpongpan said SET has been granting awards annually since  2007 to individuals and organizations that contribute to society as role models in doing goodness, encouraging others to accept and benchmark as best practice for Thai society. The THB 2 million for each award would be to support both the individuals and the organization's missions to benefit the society at large in music and sports, to upgrade quality of life both physically and mentally, eventually grooming  quality human resource for Thai society.

Sugree Charoensook, chairman of the foundation named after him, said that SET  has given opportunities for his foundation to create more musical activities, assist underprivileged children, hill tribes, and rural children to sing and play musical instruments, enabling them to develop their physical and mental potential and live harmoniously in society. Granting the award to Tanis Sriglindee was a recognition of Thailand's pride for his amazing creation in
using Thai folk flute as a tool to inspire and promote Thai nationalism, towards  sustainable society.

Juta Tingsabhat, vice chairman of the Football History Association, said that  the association has continuously supported and enhanced football history
information and statistics for Thai society's benefits. We congratulated the two awardees, namely Niwat Sriswat and Nimae Nidehah who have brought prestige to football professionals in Thailand by dedicating themselves to society and rural communities without expecting returns. We believe their good deeds will be inspirational to all.
The other award recipients screened and selected by the other five organizations will be announced soon. These five organizations are the Duang Prateep Foundation; the Population and Community Development Association, the Professor Sangvian Indaravijaya Foundation, the Thai Library Association, and the Vimuttayalaya Foundation.

Vietnam index eases; funds turn to property stocks  

Vietnam's VN Index   ended almost flat on Tuesday with mixed moves of stocks near the market's resistance level, while funds snapped up property firms on expectation of a recovery in the long-troubled real estate sector.
The index closed down 0.06 percent at 614.08 points with the market retreating towards the end of the session after the 615-point resistance level was passed in early trade.
Investors focused on property stocks, hedging on the long-term bounce of a sector stymied for several years by bad debt and weak credit growth. The central bank has vowed measures to tackle both problems.
 Kinh Bac City Development   led the property firms, surging 5.42 percent to close at its highest since April 2012,
Other real estate firms also advanced. Tan Tao Investment and Industry   rose 1.08 percent and Binh Duong Trade and Development    advanced 3.74 percent.
 "The real estate market can't get any worse," said analyst Hoang Huy of ACB Securities.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index   at the close

SE Asia Stocks -Thai SET near 2-month low; Indonesia up for 2nd day

Most Southeast Asian stock markets edged lower after a range-bound session on Tuesday, with the Thai index ending at a near two-month low amid losses in large caps but Indonesia bucked the trend, rising for a second day amid technical-led buying.
Bangkok's SET index   finished down 0.2 percent at 1,539.39, its lowest close since Aug. 8, extending Monday's 1.7 percent drop.
Among those actively traded, shares of airport operator Airports of Thailand    fell almost 1 percent to the lowest level since Aug. 21 after weak tourism related data.
The number of tourists arriving in Thailand in September dropped a preliminary 7.0 percent from a year earlier after a fall of 11.9 percent in August, showing the country's big industry continues to feel the pinch of a long political crisis.  
Stock exchange data showed inflows into Indonesian large caps such as Telkom Indonesia  and Astra International   helped bring Jakarta's composite index  0.7 percent higher.
"The decline last week was quite steep. Investors are returning since some of the blue chip stocks are trading at relatively cheaper prices," said Jakarta-based Muhamad Alfatih, an analyst with Samuel Sekuritas Indonesia.
Others in the region appeared to be tracking Asian markets.     

MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  was up 0.2 percent in late afternoon trade, after wobbling between positive and negative territory as it took its cues from a choppy, losing session on Wall Street overnight.

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
