Specialized financial institutions are the state-owned financial institutions established with each specific law, whose duties are to serve the government policies in promoting economic development and supporting investment. They are under the Ministry of Finance's supervision and BOT is empowered from the Ministry of Finance to engage in examination of their performances and risk-associated businesses.
In a separate notification, BOT announced that the government has enacted an Emergency Decree on Assistance and Rehabilitation of Business Operators affected by the COVID-19 to create additional liquidity for business operators. The Decree includes measures to reduce the debt burden of business operators by giving the business operator an opportunity to transfer assets, pay debts to financial institutions with a condition to buy back at the transferred price, and have the right to lease such assets back to operate the business to prevent liquidity issues or default on debt repayment. BOT also issued guidelines for the exemption of fees for implementing measures under the Emergency Decree.
