Subject of thesis : The Foreign Goods Trade Regulations in Thailand and Their Illumination to Chinese Law.With the development of technology and economic globalization, Thailand, a developing country, has entered the World Trade Organisation (WTO), and become a member of WTO since 1st January 1995. Becoming a member of WTO, Thailand has now opened itself to the world, which could bring benefits to the country's economy. Since entering the WTO, Thailand has consistently followed the rules and regulations of WTO. In order for Thailand to conform to the WTO, the country has amended some of its economic and trade, and administrative laws, new legislation has been introduced and the old ones were abolished. In addition to the conformation to the WTO's requirement, these changes in economic and trade law also suit the free market systems nationally and globally. Being one of the early WTO members, the country's foreign trade regulations are largely based on GATT/WTO agreements, however there are some limitations in these regulations. Moreover, there are few researchers in this area. Major aims of this thesis are to discuss and study in detail the foreign goods trade regulations in Thailand, and to give suggestions on how to improve Chinese Foreign Trade Regulations.There are 3 major parts in this essay with approximately 50,000 words. The first part focuses on the history and evolution of Thai foreign trade regulation, the characteristics of regulations in different historic periods, and the law system of Thai foreign trade regulations. The author also points out that Thailand's treaties which were signed with the western countries in the past were unfair. Because other countries protected there own country's benefits. The first part also discusses the period of 1982 to 1995 before Thailand entered the WTO when Thailand began to negotiate new foreign trade treaties with western countries. Italso examines the situations after Thailand became part of WTO since 1995.The second part of the thesis mainly studies on the foreign trade regulations in Thailand. Issues to be discussed are import and export regulations, license and quota system, export payment systems, foreign exchange systems, antidumping and Countervailing, customs/duties systems, safeguard measures.

The next issue is the financial payment system and the inspection of goods in order to maintain the quality of goods, protect people's health, and to ensure the national security. The next topics are the Thailand's anti-dumping and countervailing measures, customs/duties systems of Thailand and safeguard measures are also discussed. The conclusion of this part is that the legislation of Thailand's foreign goods regulations that are practiced and adhere to the internationally accepted principles are closely followed WTO's agreement. Also, these regulations indicate that the Thai government administrates the national economic in order to ensure that Thailand enters the global economy, protect fair competition, which lead to improve the population's quality of living, national production, and to utilise the best use of country's resources. Thailand also takes some measurement to control and protect the country's exports.The third part is the core and objective of this thesis. Having studied the foreign goods trade regulations of Thailand, some limitations of Chinese foreign trade regulations can be pointed out, and this is largely related the anti-dumping. The main problems are its incompatibility with the international trade systems. The export markets are also too narrow, mainly focused on certain countries. Lack of effective management with the trading countries is also another problem. Having used its current anti-dumping, private enterprises are reluctant to take actions to keep the current customers. In terms of countervailing, problems found are that government tends to...
