The meeting was informative for both parties. Nantawan Wongkachonkitti, Deputy Manager of the Student Loan Fund gave an overview of the demographics of students who received student loans, and provided insightful statistics on loan recipients by major, as well as repayment rates and related lending statistics.  

In return, the Student Loan Fund received information from AMCHAM regarding the AMCHAM Thailand Foundation (ATF) scholarship program, and the program’s expansion to cover vocational school students. AMCHAM also clarified that it intended to enroll additional students into the scholarships program, as well as its intention to become the Thai government’s leading partner in developing the country’s human resource, through its target industries.
