A seminar on the province’s labor shortage and preparations for the ASEAN Economic Community hosted by Personnel Management Association President Viroj Sirijanthanont, CP Global President Peerapong Sunthornwiphat and Preecha Thonsukan, human resources manager for Charoen Pokphan Foods Plc followed. EPMA Director-General Sakda Waankaew closed the day with a comparative analysis of national wages and bonuses.
Pongsak said the Chonburi Labor Bank was launched to gather and share information on available domestic and foreign laborers to meet the demands of the province’s many industrial, import-export, and tourism companies. The shared-information pool should help lower recruitment costs for businesses and offer residents more occupational options, he said.
