BANGKOK -- The Stock Exchange of Thailand is preparing listing and reporting reforms to coincide with an expected year-end pickup in economic activity and improved investor confidence once a new government is in place in the Southeast Asian nation.

The Bangkok bourse plans to finalize by the end of 2023 new listing and reporting requirements that will set equal standards for initial public offerings and backdoor listings, followed by a new free-float weighted index to be launched in 2024.
