Abstract: © koninklijke brill nv, leiden, 2019 This research report argues that non-state actors can negotiate diplomacy by facilitating Thai-Sino bilateral interactions while seeking multi-dimensional win-win benefits. With the rise of People's Republic of China's (PRC) transnational entrepreneurship, this research report departs from the conventional “flight” or “fight” approach. On the contrary, it adopts an interventional approach to encourage interactions between PRC Chinese transnational entrepreneurs and Thai entrepreneurs and other interested parties through business-themed workshops. On the one hand, the latter learn about Chinese business cultures in enhancing their entrepreneurial endeavors while gaining new opportunities on the PRC Chinese market. On the other hand, the PRC transnational entrepreneurs extend their business networks while inadvertently transforming themselves into unofficial dual-accredited diplomats. From an intra-Asian perspective, this research report helps to rectify the scarcity of literature, in which existing migrant studies are largely set in North American and European contexts.
