This study proposes a systematic process in identifying potential trade barriers for policy makers. The sequential filtering model extends the Decision Support Model (DSM) for this purpose. The DSM has been used to identify export opportunities. The model starts by eliminating uninteresting countries based on general macro-indicators, retaining those countries with adequate import size and growth, deleting countries with high trade restrictions and other barriers, and comparing realistic export opportunities and the country's actual export trade performance. Thailand's export opportunities in other ASEAN countries are employed as an example in utilizing this model.
