Thailand to export 50k workers

Bangkok Post, Thailand, 24 April 2022 - The Labour Ministry aims to send 50,000 Thai workers overseas this year following improvements in the global Covid-19 situation.

The target was publicised at a recent meeting chaired by Labour Minister Suchart Chomklin between the ministry and 127 labour brokerage firms, according to the Department of Employment's (DoE) PR office.

The meeting was also attended by DoE director-general Pairoj Chotikasathien, it said.

The office said the Covid-19 pandemic led to travel restrictions being imposed, forcing many countries to delay their plans to import labour.

Now, however, restrictions have been largely eased and Thailand's labour exports are set to resume in significant numbers, it said.

This year, the Labour Ministry expects to send about 50,000 workers to foreign shores, the office said.

Mr Pairoj, meanwhile, said firms and officials during the meeting exchanged views and suggestions about the issue.
