BANGKOK (NNT) – The industrial sector has reported a shortage of laborers despite increased unemployment brought on by COVID-19 as many migrant workers have been unable to return to the Kingdom.

Private sector entities via the Thai Chamber of Commerce have proposed four possible ways to aid unemployed individuals and the industrial sector, to the Senate Committee on Labor.

Vice President of the Thai Chamber of Commerce and Chairman of Labor Strategy and Skill Development Poj Aramwattananont outlined the four as encouraging businesses to offer flexible working hours starting from a minimum four hours to retain workers and draw in new employees; maintaining privileges for foreign workers to reinforce international confidence; enhancing skills through e-Learning, and creating a Big Data powered Digital Platform for domestic and foreign laborers.
