The Australian-Thai Chamber of Commerce, together with all Thailand Chambers, invites members to attend a Members Briefing on “Developing the Thai Workforce”, featuring presentations from leading Australian companies Bluescope and ANCA.

One of the most important issues across all industries in Thailand is the lack of skilled workers, and the need to improve skill levels either in the early stages or even before employees enter the workforce. To meet the challenge head on, two Australian companies have initiated programs that are aimed at developing their workforce through agreements with Australian & Thai education institutes. Join us as they share their stories and experiences with a view to helping other companies accomplish the same goals.

Austrade will also be on hand to explain how companies can connect with Australian Education Institutes.
