BSE MD and CEO Ashishkumar Chauhan said, BSE and SOPA fully acknowledge each other's respective strengths, resources, experience and expertise and therefore feel it expedient to join hands for mutual benefits in pursuit of common goals with the underlying objective of developing commodity derivatives market.

BSE (formerly Bombay Stock Exchange), established in 1875, is Asias oldest stock exchange, while SOPA is the only national-level body representing the soybean processors, farmers, exporters and brokers in India working towards strengthening soybean as a viable crop.
