Transcript of Thailand

Today, I will be telling you about ethnic minorities, colonialism, globalization and war in Thailand. Introduction Ethnic Minorities Colonialism War/Revolution Thailand has had incredible economic progress over the past half century. Famous brands like McDonald's and Nike, came to Thailand in these years. They improved the country, the stores of these brands make up most of a shopping center (mall) in Bangkok. The bad effect is that the brands make rich, richer and the poor people, poorer - inequality between the two. Thailand is the country in the center of Indochina peninsula in Southeast Asia. The country's area is 513,120 km2. It is the world's 51st largest country.
The population is 66,720,153 people, it was estimated in 2011. The capital city, which is also the largest city, is Bangkok. The currency is Baht (Thai Baht). The country's main religion is Buddhism. It is practiced by about 95% of the population. There are more than 30 different ethnic groups in Thailand varying in history, language, appearance, etc. They have been living in Thailand for thousands of years. The Thai (ethnic Tai) and the Chinese make up approximately 90% of the country's population, about 67.5 million. More than 95% of the population speaks a Tai language Thailand has never been colonized before. Thai people has a history of self determination so they managed to stand up against European power. That is a very special thing about Thailand. There was fighting between the Thai and the French. Thailand and Japan also fought.During World War II, France was defeated.Thailand was proud of never being colonized and determined to keep it like that. Japanese occupation of Thailand from 1932-1945. Japan invaded Thailand on December 8, 1941. Japan's goal was to have access to routes to British ruled Burma (Myanmar) and Malaya. Japan wanted to invade Malaya and Burma. An alliance between Thailand and Japan was formally signed on December 21, 1941. On January 25, 1942, the Thai government declared war on the United States and the United Kingdom. There are more of the wars, but I think this is enough.
