Overview

             Although Thailand has largely transformed from recipient to donor of ODA, Thailand still receives technical assistance from countries/international organizations that have best practices in human resource development, especially in science, technology, and innovation.  In some cases, Thailand receives ODA from donor countries as part of the existing technical cooperation agreement, especially from Japan, South Korea, China, Germany and Sweden.

             ODA that Thailand received in 2018

             In 2018, total value of ODA from foreign countries/international organizations that Thailand received through TICA is 66,994,800 USD (2,271.123 billion baht.)  Top 3 donors and their respective ODA value are the US 28.024 million USD, UN 14.721 USD, and France 10.684 USD.

             In 2016-2018, according to OECD database, Thailand received 2,948.7 million USD, 695.6 million USD, and 4,976.4 million USD in ODA respectively.  This statistic reflect the overall ODA that Thailand received, both through TICA and directly to concerned agencies.

             In 2017-2018, top 10 donor of ODA to Thailand and their value are:

             1. Japan 329.7 million USD

             5. France 16.9 million USD

             6. EU 12.1 million USD

             7. UK 10.6 million USD

             8. UNHCR 6.8 million USD

             9. South Korea 4.7 million USD

             10. Australia 3.5 million USD

 

             In 2017-2018, Thailand received ODA in the following categories:

             1. Education 21%

             2. Health and Populations 11%

             3. Other social infrastructure and services 18%

             4. Economic infrastructure and services 20%

             5. Production 6%

             6. Multisector 9%

             7. Humanitarian Aid 13%

             8. Others 2%

             Such statistics show that although Thailand has largely transformed from ODA recipient to donor country, Thailand still receives ODA from countries/international organizations that have best practices in human resource development, education, infrastructure, production, and services. 

             TICA also supports other government agencies that receive ODA from foreign countries, i.e. projects on communicable and infectious diseases with the US, agricultural technology and environment project with Germany, and public health project with Japan.  In most of such ODA projects, Thailand also helps funding or contribute in kind, such as giving privileges to foreign experts or volunteers, which is where TICA supports as coordinators between foreign countries and concerned agencies.
