Thailand - Financial sector study : Main report (English)

This financial sector study was undertaken to address concerns about the efficiency of the financial intermediation process to raise and channel the needed savings into productive investments in Thailand; and about the future role of the financial system of the Bank for Agriculture and Agricultural Cooperatives (BAAC) and the Industrial Finance Corporation of Thailand (IFCT). Emphasis is placed on the macroeconomic perspective, specifically on policies toward the financial sector in Thailand, interest rate policy, and how the Bank of Thailand (BOT) may improve its toolkit for the conduct of monetary policy. The report also focuses on the major problems and areas for improvement with commercial banks and securities and finance companies, including their competition or concentration in the financial system and their regulation and supervision (particularly with regard to failing and failed institutions). Also covered are issues relating to industrial and agricultural credit; the present state of the money, equities and fixed income securities markets; and the feasibility of financial leasing, factoring accounts receivables and trust receipt financing.
