Blog: Leonie BarrieTrip to Thailand

Leonie Barrie | 23 September 2006

Thankfully the situation in Thailand seems to have stabilised after the military coup on Tuesday ousted PM Thaksin Shinawatra. I must confess to having more than a passing interest in the situation since I travel to Bangkok tomorrow. It’s been a good five years since I was last in Thailand, but I have very fond memories of the place and hope I don’t find things have changed too much – apart from the sight of tanks and soldiers on the capital’s streets of course.

The main thrust of my trip is to visit the Bangkok International Fashion Fair and Bangkok International Leather Fair 2006 which take place from 27 September to 1 October, but I’m also due to visit some manufacturers too, and it will be fascinating to hear first-hand how they think recent events will impact on Thailand’s clothing industry. It goes without saying that I’ll share my findings with you here.
