Appendix I
The U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service in Thailand: Export Facilitation Services
America commercial officers who are part of the diplomatic mission to Thailand staff the U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service of the U.S. Embassy, Bangkok. They, and a professional staff of Thai industry specialists and American contractors, assist the Export Assistance Centers of the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) in providing market knowledge and finding and evaluating potential partners.

Gold Key Service
The Gold Key Service (GKS) is custom-tailored for each client. It combines orientation briefings, market research, and appointments with potential partners. Professional industry specialists provide market research and identify potential agents and distributors interested in working with U.S. companies. U.S. companies provide information on their business objectives and products; the GKS then arranges up to four appointments each day. Assistance with hotel reservations and transportation are available, and bilingual assistants escort U.S. visitors.

Agent/Distributor Service
The Agent/Distributor Service (ADS) locates and screens potential Thai agents, distributors, and representatives for U.S. products and services. ADS offers current available market research. For information, contact any DOC Export Assistance Centers.

International Contact Service
The U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service helps U.S. companies identify Thai companies through its International Contact Service. The customized lists are developed from databases, commercial directories, and other industry sources and contain short profiles and contact details.

Customized Market Analysis
For small- and medium-sized companies new to the market, Customized Market Analysis (CMA) offers valuable information to overcome the issues of limited overseas contacts and sales expertise. The CMA provides U.S. companies with current data customized to individual needs, allowing them to make marketing decisions without the expense associated with overseas product research. The market reports address the topics of qualified agents/representatives, sales potential, competitors, possible licensing or joint venture partners, distribution channels, market influences (price, credit, quality, service, and name recognition), and sales barriers (quotas, duties, or local regulations). Commercial specialists in Thailand develop the reports through interviews with importers, distributors, retailers, wholesalers, end-users, local producers of comparable products, and others. The reports include lists of market contacts.
