The Bank for SMEs (Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises)
SMEs play a critical role in Thaksinomics and the Bank for Small-and Medium
Sized Enterprises is the financial component of the Government's overall SME
promotion program. SMEs account for 40-50 percent of the Thai economy's GDP,
38 percent of the total value of exports and 69 percent of the country's jobs.
Thaksinomics singles out SMEs because of their potential to adjust to fast
changing conditions, to reach certain market niches more rapidly than bigger
companies and to innovate in terms of products and process.
