Release Information

This quarterly release of External Debt, measures the remaining outstanding portion of liabilities (excluding equity) which residents have over nonresidents of the Thailand economy.

External debt outstanding amount collected in the form of original currency is converted to US dollar equivalent using end-of-period New York closing rate (average rate between buying and selling rates). This is in accordance with the standard stated in External Debt Guide and the BPM of the International
Monetary Fund Debt service payment consists of (1) principal repayment on long-term debt
and (2) interest payment, both on short- and long-term debt contracts. External debt statistics are classified by 1) Instrument type : loans, debt securities, deposits, and other debt liabilities; 2) Sector : general government, monetary authorities, bank, and other sectors (state enterprises and private
enterprises) 3) Maturity : short term and long term.

The principle of "passive confidentiality" is applied; i.e., data would be suppressed at the request of entities who are concerned that their interests would be harmed by the level of detail disseminated.

Data is revised each quarter when new data becomes available.
