BANGKOK (NNT) – The Labor Ministers of Thailand and Saudi Arabia have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on the export of Thai labor that includes provisions for safe working conditions in the Gulf state.
Thai Labor Minister Suchart Chomklin met with Saudi Human Resources and Social Development (HRSD) Minister Ahmad Sulaiman Al Rajhi on Monday (28 Mar) to attend the signing ceremony in Riyadh.
The ceremony was seen as another significant step toward fully reestablishing ties between the two nations after the relationship turned sour three decades ago. The agreement is believed to also include labor protections consistent with international standards.
