Currently, environmental products and services play important role in international trade. Many countries issue law about environment by starting from controlling pollution emission to the policy that focuses on protecting the cause of problems. However, environmental product and services have many problems; therefore, they are not able to compete with main products. The free trade of environmental products and services is proposed to discuss in international trade negotiation under framework of WTO APEC and FTA. However, the free trade of environmental products and services may have both positive and negative effects on development of economy, society and environment of country. For example, it may lead to reduce obstacles of producing and service of environmental products and services and tax and non-tax obstacles. Moreover, it could lead to solve environmental problem of country. On the other hand, it may have negative effect on producing section and self-help of developing country. These are depended on specifying area and definition of “environmental products and services” and readiness of developing environmental products and services of those countries.
Therefore, government sector should focus on the roles and responsibilities of negotiators that concern with environmental products and services. The environmental issues are picked to discuss in international negotiation widely. The consideration should perform from different aspects such as potential of industry, advantages and disadvantages of economy, society and environment. Moreover, people who are responsible for trading negotiation of Thailand are still lacking of development of understanding continuously and systematically and there are no organizations which provide training course about the negotiating strategies which focus on developing negotiation techniques, transferring knowledge and negotiating experiences, creating proficiency of negotiating regulations or agreements in trading groups and negotiation of emerging issues. These will lead to the necessity of developing and creating potential of negotiating resources of Thailand systematically and seriously.
