SET and SZSE team up to connect Thai listed companies to Chinese institutional investors, driving renewable energy business

BANGKOK, The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET), together

with the Shenzhen Stock Exchange (SZSE), organizes “2022 China – Thailand Green

Energy Cooperation Seminar and Roadshow” in a virtual format on September 20,

  1. This is the fifth occasion that both countries have jointly hosted to

connect and enhance investment opportunities.


Executives from the Thai capital market and listed companies are invited to

share information on renewable energy business trend in Thailand and listed

companies’ transition to renewable energy business under a new context. The

event attracts over 120 institutional and individual investors from China.


SET Senior Executive Vice President Soraphol Tulayasathien said that information

on Thailand’s renewable energy business transition and the potential of locally

listed companies in the green energy business were presented at the virtual

seminar. Climate change policy is prioritized by both Thailand and China in line

with the global trend for energy consumption reduction to protect environment.

In the same direction as the Thai government, which aims for a 30 percent of

energy to come from renewables by 2037, carbon neutrality by 2050, and net zero

greenhouse gas emissions by 2065.


As per the plan, SET has encouraged listed companies to put the environmental,

social and governance (ESG) principles into practice and fully incorporate them

into the operational process. The sheer number of Thai companies have adapted

their businesses to be in line with the climate change goals and transformed

their businesses to renewable energy. Furthermore, a growing number of investors

now prioritize on sustainable investment in order to open up opportunities for

long-term returns.


In this seminar, the capital market executives will present the updated

information on “Green Energy Outlook and Investment Trends in Thailand & China”

focusing on renewable energy business in Thailand. In addition, executives of

three listed companies engaged in energy business namely B.Grimm Power pcl,

Electricity Generating pcl, and RATCH Group pcl will also present their

potential and business operation directions to build confidence among Chinese

institutional investors and widen investment opportunities in the future.


In 2019, SET and SZSE signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the

intention of increasing opportunities exposure for Thai and Chinese securities,

and connecting the two markets to increase fundraising alternatives through,

e.g., cross-market product development, cooperation on Index-related matters and

annual roadshows.
