As export is a vital engine driving the Thai economy, it its essential to lay down strategies to enable local entrepreneurs and exporters access to potential foreign opportunities. Because Thai businessmen and manufacturers run their business in different regions across the country, the Department of International Trade Promotion, Ministry of Commerce has established 5 Regional
Trade Promotion Centers. They are located in the North, the Northeast, the East and the South and serve as links to local manufacturers and export with international traders. These 5 regional centers work closely with 62 DITP offices worldwide.
