Before globthailand.com

In July 2013, the Department of International Economic Affairs, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Thailand launched a Business Relations Unit together with a website – ThaiBiz.net to connect foreign affairs with local businesses.  At the outset, the Business Relations Unit primarily served as a coordinating office

for the Thai businessmen who were invited to accompany  the Prime Minister of Thailand for official visits to explore new frontiers for business opportunities abroad.


Over time, the Business Relations Unit and the website have evolved to become the Ministry’s interactive channel with the Thai private sector.  It disseminates updates of global market information and business opportunities contributed by over 90 Thai Embassies and Consulates-General worldwide.


In January 2017, ThaiBiz.net is replaced by globthailand.com as a new public service platform, aspiring to provide reliable first-hand local information to further enhance Thai entrepreneurs’ capacity to become more competitive players in the global market.
