Thailand's Securities and Exchange Commission foresees steady growth in the Thai capital market, thanks to renewed foreign investor interest.
The commission's secretary general says bond market development has been high on the agenda since the country experienced a financial crisis in 1997. Since then, Thailand's bond market has grown significantly from eleven billion US dollars to 193 billion. This year alone, foreign net inflows into Thailand's bond market reached three billion US dollars.
The secretary also outlined new development plans for Thailand's bond market. They cover new regulations and measures to facilitate cross-border debt issuing within Asean.
