The Eastern Economic Corridor Office is launching short training courses to boost auto-manufacturing workers’ skills and help them soften the financial impact of Covid-19.

Funded partly by government budget to stimulate the economy, the courses have so far benefited 9,500 workers, said Kanit Sangsubhan, secretary-general of the EEC Office.

The office is collaborating with five vocational colleges spread across the EEC provinces of Chonburi, Rayong and Chachoengsao provinces.

Prior to the virus crisis, the office estimated 475,000 workers would be needed for EEC industries from 2019 to 2023. This year, it aims to train 20,000 to 30,000 workers.

The government and private sector are each paying 50 per cent to fund the reskilling and upskilling courses.
