As for the domestic political unrest, Mr Kan confirmed that it would not impact the company’s investment plan abroad particularly among ASEAN countries. Overall turnover throughout 2010 is expected to rise by 10% as compared to last year.

The SCG CEO mentioned on the direction to solve the stalemate in Map Ta Phut that the company had initiated an idea to lure industrial operators both in the private and government sectors to set up a panel to help develop the environment in Map Ta Put Industrial Estate so as to set industrial tax to pay back to the communities for social benefits.

The 2009 market rally reflects the perception that valuations are about long-term potential, and that political crises in Thailand rarely have a dramatic impact on the fundamentals of  the economy. If we look at the EV/EBITDA multiples of the oil and gas sector, for example, valuations are still low compared to regional peers. This is partly a reflection of regulatory risks and political instability in Thailand.  Ultimately, share performance reflects your company’s performance. But transparency and your free float are also critical factors.
