Thailand Focus 2013 to highlight connecting regional markets   

The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET), together with Phatra Securities pcl, and Bank of America Merrill Lynch, will hold “Thailand Focus 2013” during August 28-30 at the Grand Hyatt Erawan Hotel, Bangkok, under the theme “Connecting to New Investment Frontiers,” enabling investors globally to get insights of Thailand’s economy, investment, and government policy. This year, stock exchanges and listed companies in the Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS) will also present their growth potentials.

SET President Charamporn Jotikasthira said that Thailand Focus, the largest investment seminar on Thailand, would showcase the country’s economic growth and attractiveness of Thai listed companies, as Asian markets, especially in the GMS, have been increasingly attractive among foreign funds.

 “We expect to gain the highest amount of participants ever, with no less than 200 foreign fund managers and other executives coming to Thailand Focus. Over 150 foreign investors have accepted our invitations already, including fund top executives from Asia, Canada, Europe, and the United States. Thailand Focus is a unique opportunity for investors to get insights and strategies of the government and private sectors, with Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Kittirat Na Ranong being invited to speak on the country’s growth opportunities.”

“This year’s event highlights the readiness of the Thai capital market to be GMS’s capital market hub. Due to the high growth rate in the region, we have invited executives of bourses and listed companies of Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam to participate in Thailand Focus for the second year, reflecting our collaborative commitment to support and emphasize the region’s capital market growth. We will also take this occasion to hold the first GMS exchanges CEOs meeting, called ‘GMS Focus’, to support the region’s continuous capital market development” Charamporn continued.

Phatra Securities, a subsidiary of Kiatnakin Phatra Financial Group, President Krittiya Veeraburus highlighted that “we are very pleased to jointly host Thailand Focus again this year. The increasing number of fund managers from global and regional funds to join this event is yet another proof of the rising attractiveness and importance of Thailand capital market. Investors are paying more attention to the outlook of Thailand’s economy, expansion prospect of regional economies, as well as Thai government’s investment plan, and economic linkages between Thailand and its neighboring countries.”
Bank of America Merrill Lynch Country Head & Managing Director Ornkanya Pibuldham, said: “Thailand’s growth story continues, driven by the expansion of neighboring economies which stay on course in their advances and continued foreign direct investment into Thailand. We expect ASEAN-5 (Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines) to expand at about 5 percent in 2013, and believe that Thailand's strong fundamentals will continue to be attractive to investors worldwide.”  

"Thailand Focus 2013: Connecting to New Investment Frontiers" is one of SET's activities to match the right financial opportunities for institutional investors around the world and boost capital market opportunities for Thai listed companies.

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
