Thai bourse launches big investment fair "SET in the City 2013"
The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) has launched its grand investment fair "SET in the City 2013" in Bangkok, under the concept "Broaden Your Investment Opportunities," with executives from capital market organizations and more than 100 other partners participating over November 21-24 at Siam Paragon in Bangkok, expecting to attract more than 100,000 participants  throughout the four days.
Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Kittiratt Na-Ranong presided over the event and delivered the keynote speech at SET in the City.

He noted that since SET in the City was first organized nearly a decade ago, it had been steadily growing in popularity due to the close cooperation between capital market organizations and the business sector.

Over this time, the Thai capital market had grown strongly in terms of market capitalization, number of individual investors, fund unit holders, and institutional investors, in line with the country's economy. The capital market was also well-balanced, with sustained growth of the bond markets and banking loans.
SET President Charamporn Jotikasthira said: "SET and other organizations in the capital market have jointly cooperated to build quality investors by focusing on boosting the general public's financial and investment expertise, enabling them to learn from seminars, other activities and online channels, so that they can increase their sustainable returns despite market volatility due to domestic and overseas factors. As a result of these efforts, the number of new investors has jumped by more than 90,000 in the first nine months of this year, and we believe that this number will keep rising in 2014.

"SET in the City" is a key  event to attract new investors every year, as about 60 percent of event participants have been new investors coming to get information and investment advice from gurus, and realize the potential of Thai listed companies, which is a key mechanism to drive Thailand's business sector."
The investment fair, now being held for the ninth time, aims to offer a full range of modern financial products and investment services in one central, convenient place, with over 100 public and private organizations presenting information and giving advice.

The fair also offers 50 intensive seminars  throughout the four-day event on November 21-24 at 10:00 a.m.- 8:00 p.m., Royal Paragon Hall, 5/fl, Siam Paragon Department Store, Bangkok. For more

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
