Yes, very committed. I have spoken with several Managing Partners at some of the biggest law firms over there and they are all doing what I am here, but their clients are more HSBC, Standard Chartered, etc. However, a major result of the growing Thai economy is that their banks are becoming major players within the entire Asian investment community. I have seen Goldman, SocGen, Morgan and many other banks begin to tap into Thailand and other SE Asian markets. And sadly, because of the major growth out there and the crappy situation here, Asian gains are basically subsidizing the enormous losses here in the US. But that's another discussion :-)
It's definitely an exciting region to be in.
