A: Moving forward, Bursa remains committed in ensuring that the securities market continues to be sustainable and vibrant despite increasing volatility from external factors. We will continue to pursue efforts to increase market competitiveness as well as to develop the robustness and resilience of our market.
Potential re-rating catalysts for the market include the acceleration in the implementation of various government transformation programmes, prospects for greater merger and acquisition activities and further divestments by government-linked companies. Malaysia's strong economic fundamentals, positive prospects and sustained domestic corporate earnings growth is also expected to continue to attract portfolio inflows. The recognition of Malaysia as an "Advanced Emerging Market" in the FTSE Global Equity Index Series effective June 2011 will further increase the attractiveness of our market.
In addition, the various capital market initiatives as announced by the Prime Minister in the recent Invest Malaysia 2011 and the strategies unveiled in the Capital Market Masterplan 2 are expected to result in an increasing interest in the Malaysian market.
We also look forward to an improved performance on the derivatives market. Efforts are undertaken to promote the derivatives marketplace to the retail market sector in Malaysia alongside promotions to the institutional participants. Interest in FKLI is expected to move in tandem with the activity of the securities market, while interest in our key product, the FCPO contract, is expected to be sustainable.
We continue to invest in the development of the capital market and the regulatory environment while keeping a close watch on our expenditure. Based on the progress made in 1Q11 and barring any adverse developments, we expect improved level of activity in our markets and financial results for the financial year ending 31 December 2011.
