The implementation of such activities create aptness for Thailand and other developing countries in order to fully exploit the advantages of globalization and liberalization in various fields and directly result in the performance enhancement on personnel in Asia and other regions that mutually accept the agreement with the International Institute for Trade and Development. However, the entering into the ASEAN Economic Community in late 2015 required Thai’s personnel to have knowledge on trade and development. Currently, available information on trade and development is rather complicated to search because it is not collected within the same sources. Therefore, the development of trade and development information by integrating data from all sectors can create access of information for Thai’s personnel and contribute to the efficient and effective development of the country. Apart from the database preparation of the works on trade and development, the database of professionals on trade and development is also necessary to facilitate the professionals search in various fields of expertise.
Conclusively, the Center for International Trade Study, University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce (UTCC) recognizes the importance of improving database of works and professionals on trade and development so that Thai’s people can access the integrated database. Hence, the Center for International Trade Study would like to propose the International Institute for Trade and Development (ITD) to allow the Center to become an advisory group for the database development of professionals and works on trade and development.
