On the implementation of Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on labor cooperation and agreement on labor recruitment between Thailand and Vietnam signed last year under the witness of two Prime Ministers, Thailand will recruit a number of Vietnamese workers for construction and fishing jobs from September 2016. Vietnam Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs and Thai Ministry of Labor have worked together to discuss guidelines and steps to send and receive Vietnamese laborers.

Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung (L) shakes hands with his Thai counterpart Prayuth Chan-ocha  on July 23, 2015. The PMs witnessed the signing of a number of cooperation agreements, including a Joint Statement on the third joint Vietnam-Thailand Cabinet meeting, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on labor cooperation, an agreement on labor recruitment.

Vietnamese labor officials have also demanded that their workers should get the same payment as locals of around US$500 a month in remote areas, $1,000 in developed areas, and more in big cities. Vietnamese workers will be provided with training and education in Thai culture and their rights in accordance with Thai law before they are sent to Thailand. Additional training will also be offered to them after they come to Thailand.

Thailand has agreed to provide Vietnam with samples of labor contracts and other essential documents on the education and training activities for Vietnamese workers before they are sent to Thailand, along with lists of Thai agencies that will receive the Vietnamese workers at the end of this month.

Under the agreement on labor cooperation between the two countries, Vietnamese workers will work in the construction and fishing sectors. However, Thailand will consider recruiting Vietnamese workers in other fields based on the actual demand of Thailand enterprises and Vietnam’s ability to supply labor.
