The Effects of Foreign Bank Entry on the Thai Banking Market: Empirical Analysis from 1990 to 2002

This paper investigates the impact of foreign bank entry on Thai domestic banks by using panel data on 17 domestic commercial banks from 1990 to 2002. The paper examines different factors affecting bank performance, including changes in the foreign ownership of banks, financial regulations, and market structure. We find that an increase in foreign bank presence leads to a rise in overhead expenses, a decline in profits, and an increase in the interest spreads of domestic banks. In the short run, increased competition from foreign banks negatively affects domestic banks. However, in the long run, domestic banks' performance should improve.
