Prayut marks Labour Day by hailing ‘govt progress’


Thanking Thailand’s workforce for its contribution to the country’s economy, Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha’s Labour Day promise was also to protect them from disruptive technology.

“The government is helping build the technological skills of the Thai labour force so they meet international demands,” government spokesman Thanakorn Wangboonkongchana quoted the premier as saying. “Boosting the skills of Thai labourers will further expand their employment potential.”

Prayut was also quoted as saying that measures have been launched to contain the spread of Covid-19 and mitigate the impact of the pandemic on labourers.

He added that the government has helped enhance workers’ quality of life by paying attention to the enforcement of law, aid for the unemployed and management of migrant workers.
