He also reiterated the need for a proactive working approach and the ability to respond to the peoples’ needs effectively, meaning that state officers and officials would need to maintain up-to-date with current labour situations both locally and internationally. In addition to this, the Labour Minister highlighted the necessity to share understanding on the 20-year strategy on human resource development (2017 � 2036), the 8+1 agendas for reformation, the 5-year master plan on workforce development (2017 � 2021) and the restructuring of the ministry’s role in determining directions for Thailand’s workforce development. All of the listed correspond with the government’s policies for a Thailand 4.0, in driving the economy through innovation towards stability, prosperity and sustainability.
