Laos Today: Lao-Thai Cooperation on Workers' Nationality Verification Progressing Very Slowly


The implementation of the Lao-Thai cooperation accord on workers' nationality verification has progressed very slowly due to personnel and budget limitations on the Lao side. The same reasons have prevented the Lao government from being able to stop Lao workers from leaving home to search for job in Thailand and illegally work there.

Since the accord was signed two years ago, Lao and Thai officials have completed nationality verification for only approximately 40,000 Lao workers in Thailand and registered them out of the estimated 400,000.
