Banco Sabadell in Thailand


Banco Sabadell’s relations with the Thai banking system go back to the early 1980s.
Over this time, a firm bond has been formed with practically all local banks, thus covering the needs of Spanish exporters.
The proximity of the regional office of the Banco Sabadell in Singapore, which has been working in the country since 1990, has enabled us to set up intense cooperation on this market and with its public and private agents. Banco Sabadell Singapore has also strengthened our capacity to advise companies, investors, importers and exporters.
