The Asia-Pacific Labour Market Update is a twice-yearly snapshot of recent economic and labour market trends in Asia and the Pacific Region. Based on official data available at the time of publication, each edition contains special coverage / thematic focus with country examples on a topic of concern for decent work in the region.
Decent Work Country Profiles are constituent-driven assessments of national level progress toward decent work. Designed to strengthen countries’ capacities to “self-monitor and self-assess” progress toward decent work, the Profiles bring together authoritative national data on “statistical” indicators of decent work with accompanying legal framework indicators to provide a context-specific analysis of the pace and direction of change across the decent work landscape. In Asia, Decent Work Country Profiles are produced with the support of the ILO-EC MAP Project –Monitoring and Assessing Progress on Decent Work.
Labour and Social Trends (LST) Reports provide a comprehensive analysis of national and regional labour market developments, either nationally or regionally, and often with a specific thematic or topical focus (such as job-rich growth, the impacts of economic crises, or regional labour market integration). The reports bring together up to date and nationally available data with integrated analysis to highlight progress and identify gaps in the economic and social development, and guide the way for policymakers in designing policies for meeting decent work objectives.
Thematic working papers produced by ILO staff and associates working in Asia and the Pacific Region, and focussing on issues across the full spectrum of the Decent Work Agenda.
This publication brings together available labour market indicators to provide the most up-to-date picture of the Thai labour market in a simple, easy-to-read style.

The impact of the recent economic crisis on the labour market is also assessed, and the final chapter provides some conclusions and recommendations.
