THAITRADE.COM is Thailand’s Best e-Marketplace
Key Tool for Thai Entrepreneurs to Enter Overseas Markets, Boost Export


7 November 2013 – The Department of International Trade Promotion (DITP), the Ministry of Commerce, touts Thaitrade.com as Thailand’s best e-Marketplace. It is now playing a pivotal role in bringing Thai entrepreneurs to overseas markets and boosting Thai export on a continued basis. The Service Excellence Award from the Office of the Ad-Hoc Public-Sector Development Subcommittee has reaffirmed the efficiency of both the DITP and Thaitrade.com.

Mrs. Nantawan Sakuntanaga, the Director General of the DITP, says technology has now become the integral part of trade activities because it facilitates communications as well as the growing e-Commerce. According to her, Thailand’s e-Commerce recorded the trade volume of well over Bt250 billion in the Business-to-Business (B2B) sector and up to Bt84 billion in the Business-to-Consumer (B2C) sector in 2012. Over the same period, the international-trade volume of Thaitrade.com-based B2B transactions jumped by 10 times. The DITP is also confident that the growth trend will continue.

"We have recognized the need and the importance of developing new features for Thaitrade.com. We are now in the process of preparing Mobile Commerce, which will transform smart phones into trade tools. Moreover, we have planned to expand our services via our financial-institution network. We have focused on empowering SMEs especially in regards to e-Commerce for the ultimate goal of readying them for the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC). When the AEC materializes in 2015, free trade will spread across the ASEAN region,” Mrs. Nantawan says.

A total of 9,379 Thai exporters are now members of Thaitrade.com. Via this e-Marketplace, the DITP has provided them with various forms of support. IT development has been in place to ensure that Thaitrade.com serves as a great channel for PR and commerce on a continued basis. As an efficient platform for trade negotiations, this web site is packed with related information, news, updates and market analyses by experts. Thaitrade.com has also constantly spurred buying requests via its E-Newsletters. Indeed, this web site has created opportunities for Thai entrepreneurs to tap into overseas markets at a low cost. It, moreover, has organized extensive workshops to ensure that the entrepreneurs run their online businesses with maximum efficiency.

"In 2014, we will be pursuing the goal of encouraging more Thai SMEs to use e-Commerce as a means to boost their sales. This year, the Thai SMEs’ e-Commerce sales have already gone past Bt1 billion,” Mrs. Nantawan adds.

As a boost to its credibility and reputation, the DITP has lately won the Service Excellence Award from the Office of the Ad-Hoc Public-Sector Development Subcommittee. Its service quality is thus guaranteed.
