BANGKOK, 3rd August 2018 (NNT) - Deputy Prime Minister Gen Chatchai Sarikulya says the National Fisheries Association of Thailand is seeking help from the government to address labor shortages, while dismissing rumors that it is planning to seek assistance from His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn. 

 

According to Gen Chatchai, the meeting between members of the National Fisheries Association of Thailand, representatives of fishermen in 22 provinces and Labor Minister Pol Gen Adul Seangsingkaew over the shortages of workers went smoothly. 

 

Gen Chatchai denied that the National Fisheries Association was planning to submit a petition to His Majesty the King, claiming that the letter he received from the association indicates clearly that it is only seeking the assistance of the government. 

 

Meanwhile, a committee overseeing the mobilization and reform of public administration will convene a meeting in the middle of this month to discuss whether or not the government should buy decommissioned fishing trawlers from fishermen. The matter will later be proposed to the Cabinet for consideration.
