Stock Exchange of Thailand

The main securities exchange in Thailand. It was established in 1975 out of a desire by the Thai government to maintain a securities exchange in the country following the failure of the Bangkok Stock Exchange. Securities traded on the Stock Exchange of Thailand are divided into eight industries, which are subdivided into 25 sectors. It was known as the Securities Exchange of Thailand until 1991, which is the same year it set up electronic trading.
