PM boasts of a million upcoming jobs at city expo
Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha on Saturday opened Job Expo Thailand 2020 at BITEC Bang Na, promising over a million soon-to-be-listed vacancies as the government fights unemployment in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“The Job Expo is not only being held in Bangkok, it is also running in other provinces across the country. So far, officials say that only about 100,000 people have applied for the jobs on offer. There are still plenty of positions left all over the country,” the prime minister told an audience at the event which runs until tomorrow.
It is estimated that companies will post 200,000 positions across various sectors, while government agencies are expected to post 400,000. About 100,000 overseas jobs and 200,000 vacancies for new graduates are also predicted.
