This stakeholder meeting, involving relevant ministries and government institutions as well as representatives of the private sector and research institutions, is held in the framework of the NTM survey implementation in Thailand. It aims at
- informing stakeholders about the NTM survey, which will be officially launched on 5 August 2013,
- sensitizing institutions about the purpose of the survey and possible survey results,
- encouraging private sector participation in the survey,
- obtaining feedback on the NTMs and related problems faced by the business sector in Thailand as well as on the survey methodology.
A second stakeholder meeting will take place when NTM survey results are available in order to validate results and discuss potential solutions to the NTM-related trade obstacles identified through the survey.
