EXIM Thailand President said EXIM Thailand is ready to render financial support to Thai entrepreneurs investing overseas, especially in new types of power business. TLUXE is the first Thai enterprise to engage in geothermal power plant business in Japan, using geothermal heat to generate electricity 24 hours a day. This is in line with Japanese government's policy to promote the use of renewable energy sources to secure supply of energy appropriate for the country's economic and social environment.

""EXIM Thailand's support of TLUXE's geothermal power plants in Japan will not only serve as a prototype for other Thai entrepreneurs' future endeavors in this area, but also allow for Thai entrepreneurs' access to renewable power production technology and know-how. This will also further both countries' sustainable economic and social development, in line with EXIM Thailand's main mission and policy to develop its financial facilities in response to Thai entrepreneurs' needs in their international trade and investment of the new era,"" added Mr. Pisit.
