– SET closed at 1,674.03 points, increased 8.10 points or 0.49% with a trading value of 71.2 billion baht. An analyst from UOB Kay Hian stated that the surge was due to the announcement from China to exempt import duty of some categories of products from the U.S. The exempt excluded agricultural products such as corn and soybean, still, it is considered a positive sentiment prior to the trade talks between both countries.
