  1. Nationwide protest against EU fishing regulations

    Yes but the know how and plenty parts are imported from Germany. It is mainly done for taxreasons and fully imported cars are more expensive and have a better image. It has nothing to with Thai car parts are superior to car parts manufactured in Germany. It is only done because of the protectionist import taxes. To gain the tax benefits at least 40% of the parts have to come from inside Thailand. And the cars are not manufactured here only assembled.
