About amerthai.

Weconfess that our premise is neither unique or original. Since the lure of lucrative trade first brought the disparate cultures of the West and Southeast Asia together, it has been an unending challenge for each to understand the other. This difficulty was experienced first hand as a Thai MBA student began to master the career lessons of his American tutor. At the same time, Thailand’s strategic opportunity for unappalled economic growth as an economic hub of the new ASEAN economic region has begun to emerge. As American business pivots from aging EU markets to the promises of growth in Asia, we found ourselves becoming more than mentor and student. We became partners. Our mission is simple. We offer to build bridges of trust and understanding between the merchants of America and Thailand, working person to person, one client and one transaction at a time.
