THAILAND: Online Market Place for Thai Garment Manufacturers

The Thai Garment Manufacturers Association (TGMA) has set up a website to increase the efficiency of local garment manufacturers by improving business management and expanding market opportunities.

The site was 'soft-launched' three months ago and is currently receiving around 2,600 hits a day. Its aim is to reduce both purchasing costs and purchasing time for members

Services offered include manufacturer and product listings, a search facility, industry news, trade events information, quota information and productivity tips.

The site also includes an excess inventory service, allowing manufacturers to sell excess products via the site.

Just over 25 per cent of Thai garment manufacturers are members of the TGMA and director Kartchai Jamkajornkeiat claims that members' revenues account for 90 per cent of Thailand's total garment exports, with around 60 per cent of the total value being material purchases among members.
