Regional sustainable capital market

 

BANGKOK, April 1, 2021 – The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) organized the 32nd

ASEAN Exchanges CEOs virtual meeting on March 30, 2021. CEOs of seven ASEAN

Exchanges from six countries namely Bursa Malaysia, Hanoi Stock Exchange,

Hochiminh Stock Exchange, Indonesia Stock Exchange, Philippine Stock Exchange,

SET and Singapore Exchange collaboratively discussed strengthening co-operation

on cross-border products, working together to enhance sustainability in the

capital markets, and continuing its joint marketing of ASEAN activities to

uplift ASEAN Exchanges to catch global investors’ eyes.

 

SET President Pakorn Peetathawatchai said: This year’s agenda focused on

facilitating the issuance of ASEAN products by having cross border products,

exchanging experiences in the capital market’s ecosystem development and

investment that will lead to sustainability amid the disrupted new normal with

practical executions, and continuing to work with partners to foster greater

diversity, innovation and investment opportunities. ASEAN Exchanges will jointly

establish a Sustainability Working Group to foster sustainable development and

enhance the appeal of ASEAN’s listed companies to global investors. SET, at the

meeting, has shared practical experiences in driving Environmental, Social, and

Governance (ESG) to create balanced growth for both business and society, and

has showcased the outstanding world-class performance on sustainability of the

Thai capital market.

 

ASEAN Exchanges started the year with a virtual conference from January 4 to 8,

2021, co-hosted with Credit Suisse. ASEAN’s key policymakers and high-level

executives from the private sector shared their knowledge and expertise to more

than 90 participating institutional investors. The conference was followed by

208 corporate access meetings. The event turnout reflected, among global

investors, the high level of interest in ASEAN Exchanges.

 

Apart from the seven ASEAN exchanges, Cambodia Stock Exchange and Yangon Stock

Exchange joined the meeting.
