Bangkok, July 11, 2018 - The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) will organize "SET

on July 12 as a platform to bridge business sector and social enterprises (SEs)
to jointly create exponentially positive social impacts. The event offers
business networks, showcasing social innovations and opening up a marketplace by

SET Senior Executive Vice President Krisada Sektrakul said that the "SET Social 
Impact Day", to be held for the third consecutive year, aims to provide
opportunities for business sector to gain information associated with social
issues that SEs want to address and what business sector can support. Such
movement is a form of social impact investment that the business sector invests
its own resources not only for making profits but also to focus more on
generating positive results on society, underscoring the SET's vision "To Make
the Capital Market 'Work' for Everyone".

innovations, networking groups, sharing sessions to be joined by SEs and gurus
with experiences and expertise in various business and social impact investment,

social enterprises' businesses. At the event, participants can browse and shop
