Lao Journalists Enrich Capital Market Knowledge

Editors and journalists from both state and private television stations, radios, newspapers and magazines in Vientiane Capital attended a one-day workshop to enrich their knowledge of capital markets as well as quality stock exchange news reporting.

Held at the Lao Securities Exchange (LSX) on June 2, the training event was jointly organised by the LSX, the Lao Securities Commission Office (LSCO), the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET), Asset Pro Management Co., Ltd of Thailand, and APM (LAO) Securities Company Limited.

This programme will provide participants with a broader knowledge and understanding of capital market. I believe that after having attended this seminar, Lao journalists will be able to better provide the public with information about the risks and benefits regarding capital markets, said LSCO Deputy Director General Nakhonesy Manodham.

You might understand that capital market is an axis of national development. Many developing and developed countries use the stock market as a long-term and large fund mobilising forum, said Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the LSX Vankham Voravong.

Capital market is new to all, including those from the media, so we have to improve journalists' knowledge and capability as they need to disseminate precise information that the public can easily understand, Mr Vankham said.

Executive Vice President of SET Noppakao Sucharitakul said that the objective of the course was to provide participants with knowledge and understanding of investment and stock market and the knowledge they learned would help them analyse the information they got before disseminating it to the public.

The one-day event also witnessed a lecture given by Sopon Navarattanapong, a Thai veteran business reporter from a Thai News Agency � MCOT's Modern Nine TV.
