The Information Technology Agreement (ITA) Negotiations
Negotiations on the Information Technology Agreement are important for
Thailand as they cover a number of issues relating to the country’s IT industry, such
as computers, electronic circuit boards, and hard drives, which are one category of the
product groups seeing the greatest increase in exports.
The major focus of the negotiations involves expansion of the scope of
information technology products and the categorization of IT products, particularly
those utilizing the newer multifunctional and convergence technologies.
The Department of Trade Negotiations is tasked with undertaking in-depth
studies and analyses of the information technology industry to develop negotiating
positions that will be in the country’s best interests.
