Some necessary background, this is a summary translation from the Council of State, issued as a guide to foreigners. It's not a full translation.


CROWN PROPERTY ACT,

B.E. 2479 (1936)
In the name of His Majesty King Ananda Mahidol:
Council of Regency

Being the 4th Year of the Present Reign.


Whereas the House of Representatives has passed the resolution that it is expedient to manage crown property to be more appropriate;

Be it, therefore, enacted by the King, by and with the advice and consent of the House of Representatives, as follows:

Section 1. This Act is called the “Crown Property Act, B.E. 2479.”

interesting question, would love to buy their stock as a holdings company

Sovereign funds should open their capital and let investors trade them as shares, like they do for other trading funds

^But this isn't a Sovereign Wealth Fund. It appears to be some variant on a 'Family Office' governed by a specific set of rules.

When Abhisit appeared at our Bangkok conference he said that Thailand was mulling over starting a SWF.
