Export - Import Bank of Thailand (EXIM)
Background and Objectives
Export-Import Bank of Thailand (EXIM Thailand) is a state-owned specialized financial institution under the Ministry of Finance’s supervision. It was established by the Export-Import Bank of Thailand Act, 1993 (B.E. 2536), which took effect on September 7, 1993. The Bank’s objective is to conduct business which promotes and supports Thai export, import, and investment for the purpose of national development by providing credit facilities, guarantees, insurance against risks, or other services conducive to the achievement of its goals.

Besides capital increases from the Ministry of Finance to accommodate its business operations in each period (the latest, in 2021, was the first capital increase in 12 years), EXIM Thailand is self-reliant financially through fundraising in the forms of borrowing from financial institutions both at home and abroad and issuance of short- and long-term financial instruments for offering to financial institutions, state agencies and the general public, to provide credit facilities to Thai exporters and investors.
