Abstract: The World Trade Organization's goal is to encourage free trade without tariff barriers by introducing fair regulations. Between the negotiation stage and competitive trading, an alternative market outside of the world trade system has been introduced under the brand "Fairtrade." It has been supported internationally by the uniting together of such organisations as OXFAM in England, Fair Trade Labeling Organization in Germany and Transfair International Organization in USA and Canada. The main purpose is to help farmers and suppliers in developing countries and to seek ways to resolve ineffective market devices and unfairness by promoting the Fairtrade Label internationally as a means of adding value to the product. In the lower part of Nan province, a group of weavers produce a cloth woven by hand classified as Sarong watermark or Woven watermark flow. Nan province is also widely famous for other attractions such as Boat racing, which is broadcast nationally, black Ivory, Sao Din Na Noi Temple, beautiful paintings at Phumin Temple, beautiful scenery at Doi Phu Kha, chintz tasting at Pla Pak, Chinese Mafai Chuan, delicious lychees and Nan's Golden Oranges. Together, these constitute solid career opportunities for community groups.
