well equipped with updated information on 2016 listed firm's performance with
the combined earnings up 30.41 pct from last year, as well as economic
information. There has been a good response from investors in Hong Kong as the
Thai stock market is attractive compared to peers with lots of potential in mid
and small-sized firms to invest, while there are some worries about the Federal
Reserve's  interest rate hike which could impact the global investment."

equity fund will be this year second roadshow. Currently, investment inflow from
Korean investors is comparatively low, while Korean investors are looking for

industries to Korean investors to gain more confidence on Thai listed firms'
potential," added Santi.

SET's upcoming roadshows will be in The United Kingdom, Japan, and Singapore. In
