Director-General of the Thai Department of Skill Development (DSD) Kreeta Sopchoak said that emphasis would be placed on cooperation with the private sector, under the mechanism of “state of the people,” which encourages government agencies to work in close cooperation with other sectors.
The DSD aims to increase labor productivity. It believes that, with greater skills, Thai workers will be able to increase labor productivity, and this would reduce production costs. A target has been set to develop skills for 100,000 workers to accommodate the ASEAN Community through various training projects, such as those concerning languages, tourism, and services.
In special economic zones, the Department will provide skill training for 15,000 workers. It is also preparing to set up two additional skill development centers, one in Mae Sot, Tak province, and the other in Aranyaprathet, Sa Kaeo province.
The current 11th National Development Plan also focuses on human resource development, aimed at increasing resilience to change. Skills for lifelong learning will be developed, as well, with an emphasis on knowledge, innovation, and creativity.
Smiti added the labor strategy consists of four strategic plans. The first plan seeks to promote employment for Thai people. The second plan seeks to enhance Thai labor skills to international standards. In the third plan, labor protection will be developed to international standards and workers will be ensured of job security. The fourth plan involves labor management with international cooperation.
Other issues that were taken into consideration were impacts from the freer movement of skilled labor in this region and human trafficking, so that Thailand would be able to deal effectively with the new situation.
