This study examines how Thailand GDP announcement surprise affects AEC stock markets which are Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, and Vietnam. In the sample of 44 GDP announcements in Thailand during 2009-2019, our result suggests that there is no impact to AEC stock markets on GDP announcement date. However, we find pre-and post- GDP announcement effect spillover to other countries in AEC. In addition, the direction of Thailand GDP announcement has no reaction on abnormal return on AEC stock exchanges. In contrast, our findings report the influence of macroeconomic conditions in Thailand on the abnormal return in Malaysia, Singapore, and Philippines.
