The Thai Stock Exchange has unveiled a new investment promotion campaign, aimed at local investors, that will be in effect throughout Q1-12. The Stock Exchange of Thailand SET President, Mr. Charamporn Jotikasthira, said that even though last years flood crisis has affected overall local economy and investment considerably, the impact on listed Thai firms has been limited as not many of them were directly hit by the inundation.

He added that the resilience of publicly-listed companies is evident also due to their strong fundamentals. According to Mr. Charamporn, many companies in the industry sector will still be able to turn the crisis into a business opportunity now that the situation is returning to normal. And with its mission to build and restore confidence in the public and the business sector, the SET is introducing a new campaign “invest THAILAND” to encourage Thais to become a major engine in driving local investment and businesses forward.
