Abstract
This paper proposes to examine the relationship between components of a multi-dimensional model of the Cultural Intelligence and Expatriate Adjustment with critical consideration given to the effects of Cultural Distance. In terms of psycho-cultural and socio-cultural adjustment of expatriates, it is proposed that there will be a significant difference. In order to be applicable for belt & road initiative, we choose China and Thailand as research subjects. And we propose that cultural distance will moderate the relationship between cultural intelligence and expatriate adjustment, and the relationship is stronger when the direction of cultural flow is from Thailand to China.
