The fund roadshow, under the Asia Region Funds Passport (ARFP) initiative, is also a unique platform for executives from both Thai and Japanese asset management firms to exchange views, build network and create tremendous benefits to the mutual fund industries.

Education on relevant regulations will be provided to stakeholders so as to support the implementation, enabling them to utilize what SEC and other regulators is putting efforts to make this cooperation successfully.”
