development, SET shared our experiences of becoming the first exchange in ASEAN
to join the UN Sustainable Stock Exchanges Initiative (UN SSE Initiative) in
2014. Many interesting topics are lined up including bond market development
through the exchange trading system and foreign currency bond; as well as
enhancing capabilities of small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and the
Fintech businesses with fast-growing business models in many countries."
