The seminar of the Earning Forum 2024 was held with the aim of providing a platform for listed companies to disseminate business information. It was also an opportunity for them to share their annual reports for 2023 and the first quarterly report for 2024 to public investors.

The seminar urged investors to study filings of companies and equity reports by securities firms. CSX’s CEO also encouraged all listed companies to find ways or create opportunities that allow investors to learn about their companies more easily and effectively.
