Myanmar and Thailand hammered out a deal to smooth the way for labour recruitment after thousands of Myanmar workers left the kingdom in haste the past week, which almost soured bilateral relations between the two nations.


  • The exodus of workers from the neighbouring country was triggered by a strict decree passed by the Thai government on June 23. Thousands of workers abandoned their jobs and fled the country with their families and belongings after the decree.
  • Under the new decree, heavy fines of 400,00 to 800,000 baht for every unregistered worker would be imposed on employers by the Thai government.
  • An estimated 40,000 Myanmar workers fled the country when the law was announced. Over a million Myanmar workers fuel the Thai economy, and thousands of young workers cross the Myawaddy-Moei River every year to earn a living.
