  2. Migrant workers' radio in Thailand

    30 March 2012

    Thailand has more than two million foreign migrant workers but many are not formally registered to work and as a result are vulnerable to arrest, deportation or exploitation. The ILO's TRIANGLE project, supported by Australian Aid, the Australian Government's aid programme, has been working with the Royal Thai Government, social partners and NGOs to improve labour protection for migrant workers across the Mekong sub-region. In this short video, an ILO-supported radio programme proves its worth in reaching out to migrant workers in the northern Thai city of Chiang Mai to inform them of their rights and responsibilities.

Currently, there is no recruitment agency association that unites agencies in Laos and provides a forum for cooperation, information sharing, industry regulation or advocacy. At the workshop, guidance will be provided by the MOLSW and the State Recruitment Management Authority, the Lao National Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and comparative experience from the region.
