Since the late Ming dynasty, the Teochew people have migrated overseas in large numbers to escape war, social unrest and poverty. More than ten million Teochews, almost as many as the current population in the Teochew region, now live outside China in over 40 countries and territories.Most of the overseas Teochews reside in Southeast Asia and Hong Kong. Thailand in particular has a large and influential Teochew community. It is from these countries that the Teochew Letters originate.
