‘Navigator for Business’ B2B Network (N4B) started its development in 2009 as agreed in the Protocol of the 4 th Meeting of the Thai-Russian Joint Intergovernmental Committee (November 2009, Bangkok). N4B is a multi-language internet platform intended to establish integrated informational business space and promote economic, trade, and investment relations on a national and international level. Since the end of 2010 Navigator for Business is operating in a pilot mode in 6 languages: Russian, English, German, French, Chinese, and Thai.

In many Asian countries B2B e-marketplaces supported by the government promote SMEs goods and services at national and international markets. The most successful platforms operate in China and Korea.
N4B provides to SMEs very easy-to- use and efficient tools to promote their goods and services on the domestic markets. Developing this multi-language B2B internet network in Thailand and other CICA countries shall promote economic, trade and investment cooperation between CICA members through the involvement of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) into the foreign trade.

Using the N4B features SMEs may receive free of charge:
And the information would be known to the business communities concerned: potential customers, partners. As an additional service a ‘virtual representative office’ could be established in the countries on interest. This is an effective way for SMEs: - to BOOST the demand, - to find reliable and trusted partners; that works 24 hours a day, 365 days a year!
A special role for business communities (chambers, industrial, agricultural, and trade unions and associations) distinguishes N4B from already existing systems. Competent business communities may give recommendations to its members thus helping them to find clients/partners; N4B assists in organizing effective work of business communities (including business corresponding and easy downloading documents for both general and inner use, making the one-click- dispatch among the participants, etc.).

In 2010, to promote the N4B platform in cooperation with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Russia and other competent business associations 5 Internet Forums were held attended by representatives of more that 150 organizations. Forums were broadcasted online via internet; all presentations, video, etc are available at the website N4.biz. On 30 November 2010, during the Forum, the online Moscow – Bangkok telebridge was set up.
We are looking for the partners both in private and public sectors to localize and promote the N4B in Thailand. There are several options for public-private partnership. the state (on behalf of ministry, department, etc.) owns the national N4B platform and a private company operates it; the state leases the N4B platform from a private company and uses its services to promote SMEs and foreign trade; private company owns and operates the platform with the government support.
