The magazine will be published by Pacific Hearst Co Ltd, a joint venture between HMI and the Pacific Group, which produces local women's magazine Dichan. It will appear monthly and have an initial circulation of 50,000.
Cosmopolitan's planned introduction to Thailand was first revealed in June last year, when a launch date was set for January.
