BANGKOK -- Japan's Mizuho Bank and the Export-Import Bank of Thailand are planning a partnership deal that will provide financial services to small- and medium-size Thai companies that are looking to expand their businesses into other countries in Southeast Asia's Mekong region.

The deal is expected to be signed as early as Monday, according to people familiar with the matter. Mizuho would become the first Japanese private bank to make such a deal with EXIM Thailand. Mizuho will lend money to Thai SMEs, assessed and guaranteed by EXIM Thailand, when they enter another country in the region.
