The SEC and the Thai Listed Companies Association (TLCA) hosted the “SEC for CEO Forum” project to strengthen relationships and increase communication channels for knowledge sharing among listed company executives, SEC executives, as well as experts from both the public and the private sectors.

Vorapol Socatiyanurak, SEC Secretary-General said that “The “SEC for CEO Forum” project was initiated to serve as a platform for CEOs of listed companies, SEC executives and experts from both the public and the private sectors to meet and exchange their views. We also took this opportunity to encourage the private sector to make more use of capital market for their fund raising and business expansion; thereby enlarging capital market role in developing the country’s economy. Besides, sustainability development through corporate social responsibility and corporate governance were emphasized to increase their awareness and implementation. In addition, this time it was a privilege for us to have Director-General of the Revenue Department, Satit Rungkasiri as a panelist on “New Tax Policy and Directions that Listed Companies Should Know.” The SEC believes that the launch of this project is another milestone for knowledge sharing in our market which in turn will bring new ideas and discussions that will be beneficial for business and the further development of the capital market in preparation for the upcoming ASEAN Economic Community (AEC).”

Chanin Vongkusolkit, TLCA Chairman said that “TLCA believes that in moving together for the further development of both businesses and the capital market, understanding and an integrated effort is a must. Thanks to the SEC for initiating a platform for CEOs of listed companies to meet and discuss with SEC executives to drive constructive outcomes. We would also like to thank the Director-General of the Revenue Department for his contribution and look forward to hearing his views on offshore investment tax for our preparation for the coming of the AEC.”
