Employment situation starting to improve

BANGKOK (NNT) – Improvements in the employment situation are being seen, in line with positive developments in exports, consumption, and manufacturing and the success of the public program to retain hiring levels at SMEs.

She also cited state sector employment promotion and the factory sandbox scheme as having partly contributed to improved employment.
