SET has continuously enhanced development of the infrastructure, and new products and services ready to connect to global capital markets. This will enable SET to be instrumental in the source of funds for businesses, providing opportunities for local and international investors in line with the vision: 'To Make the Capital Market Work for Everyone'.

At the Embassies @ SET event, diplomatic professionals from embassies in Thailand and Thai embassies overseas who play significant roles in connecting and providing trade and investment information in each country have been invited to receive first-hand information and data on the potential of the Thai capital market, the outstanding sustainability development and the resilience of Thai listed firms, with wider perspectives of investment opportunities in Thailand and potential business networking among the countries to attract foreign investors to the Thai capital market.

"The event was well-received by the participants. Significantly, most diplomats paid special attention to listed companies' overseas investment generating revenue for them and the eye-popping IPO numbers. This was a good opportunity to exchange viewpoints and opinions with representatives of various countries which will benefit the development of future products and services to meet the demand of foreign fundraisers and investors," added Pakorn.
