What is ServiceSolutionsUSA?

The U.S. Department of Commerce developed the ServiceSolutionsUSA Directory in order to help American companies connect with strategic organizations in other nations to ensure successful business ventures.

Through Commercial Service Bangkok’s ServiceSolutionsUSA Directory, U.S. companies can connect with Thai businesses in order to find the partner organizations they need to provide services, assist in investing, or help with exporting. Likewise, Thai companies can also utilize this partnership to boost their business activities in the U.S.

Why is this service beneficial for U.S. and Thai companies?

Ever since the Treaty of Amity and Commerce between the United States and Thailand in 1883, we have seen substantial commercial growth in both nations. As cross-investment continues to flourish in both economies, it is important to develop strong partnerships across many functions of businesses to ensure success. Just as American organizations need Thai partners to guide them through new ventures in the Thai economy, there is a growing need for U.S. accounting and legal executives to assist Thai companies as they continue to enter the American economy. Joining the ServiceSolutionsUSA Directory will enable organizations from both nations to interact with one another, strengthening their networks and building the framework for a stronger performance across both countries.

How do I become a member?

As a member, you are guaranteed a listing on our SSUSA directory that includes a description of your business, company logo, your contact person, company address, email, and company website, all for a minimum fee of $300 annually. Please contact Ms. Thanyathorn Voravongsatit, Commercial Specialist for more details if you have any further questions.
