Resona Holdings Inc. has agreed to forge a lending alliance with Bangkok Bank focusing on Japanese companies operating in Thailand, company officials said Monday.

Under the agreement, Resona will screen the financial conditions of Japanese companies that want to borrow money to finance their investments in the country, allowing Thailand’s leading commercial bank to offer them loans in the local currency, the officials said.

Resona will also guarantee debt repayments to facilitate the lending process.
