Thai bourse awards winners of capital market learning center concept contest

BANGKOK, April 30, 2013 – The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) bestowed awards to winners of the contest “Conceptual design for presentation of financial and investment knowledge” under the concept of “Know, understand, be inspired, then invest in the capital market”, initiated to decide on fundamental concepts of a Thai capital market learning center. The learning center will be a Bangkok landmark which inspires people on saving and investment. Award winners in the three categories were: inspiring to invest, won by Chandhima Chandhapradit; creativity in presentation, won by Tri Srihatai; financial knowledge interpretation, won by Attapol Wongta.

            Nawaporn Ruangsakul, chair of the contest judges, noted that the contest was a valuable SET initiative which offered opportunities to students and the general public to take part in founding the Thai capital market learning center.
            “Personal finance management is inevitably essential to everyday life and should therefore be instilled since childhood. The learning process is embedded in the theme of the contest. Men and women of all ages were invited to submit their ideas. In addition, the contest promoted an exchange of financial knowledge between parents and children, teachers and students, and even among friends. The 23 submitted entries helped SET simplify learning about finances and investment, making it more pleasant and inspirational. I’m confident that this learning center will become a  notable landmark of Bangkok, and all contest participants, and SET will be proud of having had a key part in its establishment”, said Nawaporn.

Charamporn Jotikasthira, SET president, noted that the Thai bourse has consistently promoted the understanding of savings and investment among the public, and continuously instilled a culture of savings in youth. Therefore, the new SET head office on Ratchadaphisek Road, Bangkok, will include this learning center, which will be a 1,000-sq. meter museum and experience center. This center will be unique and enjoyable, enhancing financial and investment literacy. Visitors will also see the important role of SET as a past, present and future key mechanism in development of the Thai capital market and SET’s relationship with Thai society. The center will provide priceless opportunities for self-learning to people of all ages through innovative learning media set in modern displays.
 “Contest entries were in various forms, including computer games, board games, songs, video footage and Thai musical folk dramas. The judges, comprised of distinguished individuals from various fields, selected the most outstanding works. These ideas will certainly be extended and applied to the learning center,” Charamporn said.

The winners of the contest were Chandhima Chandhapradit, for her work “Experience Discovery Life @ SET/The Happiness Journey”; Tri Srihatai, for his “Back to the Future for Financial Freedom”, and Attapol Wongta, for his work “Life is an investment in learning to search for inspiration and a path to freedom of achievement”.

 The contest judges include Nawaporn Ruangsakul, the chair of the panel, and Charamporn Jotikasthira, the deputy chair, as well as Rapee Sucharitakul, Wiwan Tharahirunchote, Veerathai Santiprabhob, Ronarit Dhanakoses, Patcharin Kachanubal, Noppadol Weerakitti, Maythinee Suvarnapunya, Poraminthra Krouethong, Prapas Cholsaranon, Priyakorn Pusawiro, Wimontip Musikaphan, and Phanit Kerdchokchai.
Each winner has been awarded with a certificate, a cash prize of THB 50,000, and books on finance and investment worth THB 2,500.  For more information on the winners and details of their works, please visit

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
