Dr Pakorn Peetathawatchai , President , The Stock Exchange of Thailand , said : “ This is one of our most ambitious and challenging projects to establish a common , streamlined infrastructure that will open up new possibilities for Thai brokers to revolutionize their back-office business models . We strongly believe that continued support from participating brokers in providing valuable insights , along with KGiSL ’ s delivery capability , are key ingredients to contribute the project ’ s success .”
