ANZ was the first Australian and New Zealand based bank to establish a presence in Thailand with the opening of a representative office in Bangkok in 1985.
As a representative office, ANZ cannot provide direct banking services in Thailand, but it works closely with the ANZ network to arrange facilities for companies doing business in Thailand.
ANZ in Thailand can provide guidance to companies wishing to undertake trading activities in Thailand as well as assistance in specific trade transactions by facilitating the selection of an appropriate Thai bank for the issuance of import Letters of Credit and subsequent introduction to the selected bank. Other product areas we provide guidance on are Project Finance and Private Banking.
Generally, ANZ in Thailand provides advice to customers to assist them to identify opportunities for investment and potential joint venture partners in Thailand and organises introductions to Thai corporations and government officials.
