Thailand has been going through a period of political divisiveness, as noted by recent protests. That said, the currency (Thai baht) remains strong, the middle class is booming, and investors are flocking to the region.
If you’ve been thinking about starting a business in Thailand, the Wood Egg Thailand startup guide will be your go-to reference manual.
Each year we hire 3 researchers (at least one local and one foreigner who live in Thailand), a native English-speaking in-country writer, and an editor, to bring you insights from multiple perspectives.
Our researchers spend over 200 hours interviewing local business people, politicians, and citizens who regular foreigners would never have access to. This is 200+ hours you will save to hit the ground running. (Bonus: When you register your eBook at WoodEgg.com you get access to all of our raw research and interviews.)
In the 2014 Wood Egg Thailand startup guide you will learn:
