BANGKOK (NNT) – Thailand’s Public Debt Management Office (PDMO) plans to issue “Ying Aom Ying Dai” (the more you save, the more you earn) government savings bonds, worth 50 billion baht, next month, aiming to use the funds to finance state projects to ease the impacts of the pandemic.

PDMO Director-General Patricia Mongkhonvanit said on Friday that the interest rates on these PDMO bond tranches reflect the likelihood of higher market rates. PDMO bonds offer an average annual interest rate of 1.80%-1.90% to individual investors, depending on bond terms

The office will also offer the bonds to non-profit organizations at an annual rate of 2.20%.
