Workers aged between 40 and 45, who are doing fewer shifts and earning less as well as those whose jobs stand to be disrupted by technology must improve their skills or they may find themselves jobless once the Covid-19 crisis is resolved, said Tanit Sorat, vice chairman of the Employers’ Confederation of Thai Trade and Industry.

He warned that the post-Covid labour market will be very different, with businesses employing more freelancers and more people working from home.

Also, most staff will be re-hired on an outsourcing basis, he added.

Tanit also said that the “new normal” created by the Covid-19 crisis will give birth to a neo-economy, where most transactions and business operations are digital.

In addition, special sanitary and phytosanitary measures will be applied to exports as well as domestic transportation, and public health screening will be stricter in airports as well as bus and train stations.
