EXIM Thailand President said that, under the MOU, EXIM Thailand will support Thai entrepreneurs in AMATA Industrial Estate and alliances in the business networks in their access to financial sources and new trade and investment opportunities in and outside Thailand.

“This cooperation between EXIM Thailand and AMATA aims to fill business gaps for entrepreneurs at all levels in the AMATA Industrial Estate, from small to medium and large enterprises throughout the supply chain, so that they are fully ready to uplift their production efficiency and strengthen their export and investment linking investment both domestically and internationally. This also includes cooperation projects between Thai and other countries’ governments for economic, social and environmental development at the regional and global levels as a whole,” added Dr. Rak.
