EXIM Thailand’s Corporate Social Responsibility Plan 2012 - 2016
Pursuant to Section 7 of the Export-Import Bank of Thailand Act, 1993 (B.E. 2536), EXIM Thailand was founded with the objective of “conducting the business which promotes and supports export, import and investment for the purpose of national development.” Thus, the goal of advancing the country’s social and economic development has apparently been imbued in the Bank’s founding principles and raison d’être. Being a state-owned specialized financial institution under the oversight of the Ministry of Finance, the Bank embraces its corporate social responsibility (CSR) by conducting, on a continuous basis, numerous social contribution activities such as aids to the underprivileged or disaster victims, dissemination of knowledge in international trade and investment to entrepreneurs and the general public, fostering of education, public health, religious affairs, arts and culture, and caring for and preservation of the environment.
Under EXIM Thailand’s corporate governance policy, set out by the Board of Directors (BOD) pursuant to a resolution of the BOD meeting no. 12/2550 on December 20, 2007, the “corporate social responsibility” agenda has been embedded into the Bank’s good governance framework that the Bank must adhere to.
