Thai seafood associations reveal labor conditions action plan
Eight seafood and fishery associations will today reveal their action plan on labor conditions and send a decisive message against the United States' decision to downgrade Thailand to "Tier 3" in its annual Trafficking in Persons Report.
The Bank of Thailand and businesses groups have voiced concern over the move, saying it has the potential to hamper the country's export sector especially the shrimp industry.
The eight associations met yesterday to draw up a 'roadmap' as a whole supply chain, in a bid to defend themselves against the report.
