(VOVworld) - Thailand is opening its labor market to Vietnamese workers as it sees higher demand for guest workers. In a recent statement broadcast on the National Broadcasting Services of Thailand (NBT), Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ochao, said that Thailand will fall short by 60,000 to 70,000 workers when it joins the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) in early 2016 and that Thailand is considering importing Vietnamese laborers to meet this demand. With this in mind, Thailand is accelerating the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on labor cooperation with Vietnam and adjusting the MOUs signed with Cambodia, Laos, and Myanmar to match current political, economic and social developments.
