Thai book industry

The publishing industry has flourished significantly in Thailand within the last few years.

From 2003 to 2006 the total number of bookstores in the country has almost doubled jumping from 678 stores to 1309.

The increase has mostly been due to bookstore chains that have been springing up all over the country although the increase in number of standalone bookstores cannot be disregarded. The book industry shows no signs of decline perhaps due to the fact that books are not considered to be luxury items so that economic up and downs will not significantly affect the business. The Thai government’s education policy also stresses importance in books so that with the support of the government the book industry can surely thrive.
