difference between show and watch

I want to explain my problems with following sentences:

" I'm happy to hear that our new ENT surgeons are finding far fewer cholesteatoma cases to operate on," says Dr Sal, whose foundation has done 10,000 free operations. As well he has designed a cheap digital audiometer to provide early detection of hearing disability. Village health workers and schoolteachers have used his audiometers to screen millions of children.

With his work in Thailand showing results, Salyaveth is taking the battle against ear disease to neighbouring Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia, as well as Bhutan and China."

Please, read again the sentence "With his work in Thailand showing.......". The word 'show' and 'watch' don't have same meaning. 'Show' is done for other people, while the work 'watch' is done for own self.
The word 'showing' is located after the word 'Thailand'. Can I write "With his work in Thailand that shows results ......."? Is it legal? If it is wrong, what are the reasons behind this?

I think 'showing result' means after observing results of his works in Thailand, Dr Sal wanted to spread the area of his work to the neighbouring country of Thailand. Am I right? If I replace the word 'showing' with 'watching' or 'observing', what kind of differences will be appeared?

Ahmed you can't do that because it would mean the work itself is doing the watching

You could write, "Watching results of his work in Thailand," but isn't id or collo

@Nousher Ahmed,

Quote:
With his work in Thailand showing results,


That just means "producing (good) results", 0r "having some success".
It's got nothing directly to do with watching or observing.

example: John's new diet is showing some results at last. He tells me he's lost fifteen pounds in weight.
