TWSE to hold investment forum in Kuala Lumpur

Taipei, April 28 (CNA) The Taiwan Stock Exchange (TWSE) will hold a forum in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur on May 4 as part of its efforts to promote Taiwan's capital market, the TWSE said in a statement Thursday.

The "Invest Taiwan, Kuala Lumpur" forum is being co-organized by Taiwan's SinoPac Securities and Malaysian brokerage RHB.

Ten Taiwanese companies have been invited to attend the event.

The TWSE said Taiwan and Southeast Asia are both part of the East Asia economic circle and that in the face of the emergence of Southeast Asia's Islamic economic circle, Taiwan's capital market must not be absent.

The TWSE said through the forum, it hopes to help Taiwanese listed companies strengthen their investor relations and promote Taiwan's excellent corporate governance. It also hopes to introduce more capital from Southeast Asia and boost the momentum and international visibility of Taiwan's capital market. (By Tien Yu-pin and Y.F. Low)
