This document aims to provide reflections on the current operations of the LCCs, and recommendations on how they can be further strengthened. These findings and recommendations are based on the ILO’s observations of LCC operations and interviews with key officials and staff in Samut Sakorn, Trat and Ranong. Additional information was obtained from several meetings over the past year with the Department of Employment (DOE) and the National Fisheries Association of Thailand (NFAT).
