Due to the influx of migrant workers on its territory, Thailand government may finally have decided to give them a legal route as they attempt at appointing workers from neighboring countries–Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar.
These are the same countries that have witnessed turbulence in recent times and people have chosen to migrate from their territory. As per official confirmation, Thailand will accept 160,000 migrant workers from Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar.
This will also ensure that the crisis that the country is suffering from related to the shortage of migrant workers will also be solved. Experts suggest that Thailand authorities are aiming to solve two problems by this–one if illegal penetration and the second one its workers shortage.
Thailand authorities will also be issuing visas to more than 2.2 million people on account for their work so that it allows them to remain in the country even during the pandemic. The labor ministry too confirmed the announcement that it will cater to labor shortage.
