8月是泰國詩麗吉皇后的誕辰，亦是當地母親節，除了介紹皇后生平，VT本期封面故事也藉由與泰國Siam Piwat集團執行長Chadatip Chutrakul的訪談，來傳遞不可小覷的女性力。這位獲《富比世》評選為2016年亞洲50名女性企業家的Chadatip，如何能在競爭激烈的零售業，尤其是電商浪潮來勢洶洶的時局，帶領團隊創造一片天地？
August 12th is the birthday of the Queen of Thailand, Queen Sirikit and also the Mother’s Day in Thailand. In addition to the introduction of Queen Sirikit, we would like to emphasize female power by interviewing Chadatip Chutrakul, the CEO of Siam Piwat. Despite the rise of e-commerce, Chadatip, recognized by Forbes as Asia’s 50 Power Businesswomen 2016, has still managed to lead Siam Piwat to great success in the highly competitive retail industry.
In the special topic, we invites Dr. Yang to decode the meaning of numbers in Thai culture. Wondering why the number 13 is associated with ghost and considered unlucky in Thailand? The reason is totally different from Western thought! That’s the fun of cultural differences.
The importance of culture cannot be overemphasized. Recently, Taiwan has started to regard Southeast Asia as “the land of opportunity”. For people who want to do business in foreign countries, in addition to knowing industry conditions, it’s also necessary to learn local culture in order to understand the local people and thus start long-term collaboration with them. As for tourists, they will gain a wider and deeper view of Thailand if they learn its culture.
We don’t regard ourselves as know-it-alls. Instead, we’ve been walking on the path of learning. In addition to sharing news and beautiful scenery, we hope to bring opportunities and new perspectives to our readers so that everyone can think outside the box and see Thailand from a different view.
