Thailand answering 500,000 migrant labour shortage

Thaiger, Thailand, 13 July 2022 - Thailand’s Chamber of Commerce yesterday insisted it is addressing the shortage of migrant workers needed to help boost the nation’s economy.

Chamber of Commerce vice chairman, Poj Aramwattananont, made known the demand for workers is surging now almost all coronavirus-related travel and business restrictions to accelerate economic recovery have been lifted by the government.

“Labour is considered a key machine in propelling Thailand’s entire economy from the export-orientated industries, manufacturing, processing and construction to tourism and service-related sectors.

“This is regarded as a serious problem as Thailand desperately needs foreign workers to help rehabilitate the economy battered by the Covid-19 outbreaks. We now have a lot of key infrastructure projects in the construction pipeline and we also have many tourism and service-related jobs that need to be filled after the government announced it would fully reopen the country to international tourists.”

The department accepts more than 500,000 additional foreign workers are needed in its manufacturing and services sectors to support economic recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic but says it is doing all it can to support the kingdom’s businesses.
