Export-Import Bank of Thailand (EXIM Thailand) is a state-owned financial institution under the Ministry of Finance's supervision. It was established with an initial capital of 2.5 billion baht by the Export-Import Bank of Thailand Act B.E. 2536 (1993), which took effect on September 7, 1993.

Following rapid business expansion, the Bank's capital was increased with the Ministry of Finance's additional contribution of 2.5 billion baht and 1.5 billion baht in April and July 1998, respectively. Later in December 2008, the Ministry of Finance injected another 1.3 billion baht in capital to enhance the Bank’s capability to fulfill its mission as a state-run specialized financial institution with a mandate to promote and support Thai exports, imports, and investments, both domestic and overseas.

In September 2009, the Ministry of Finance increased the Bank’s capital by another 5 billion baht. The fund was earmarked for export promotion through export credit insurance under the Strong Thailand Scheme 2012. The service helps safeguard exporters against non-payment risk by overseas buyers, thereby boosting exporters’ confidence in their business expansion in the main or emerging markets, particularly in the midst of the 2009 economic turbulence when such risk heightened substantially.
