The deficiencies in the labor force are heavily related to the education system. As the education system continuously fails to produce consistent English and critical thinking skills needed to be successful and politicians do not act on education reform promises, we can expect to see these issues continue. Without a fundamental change in the education system it will be very difficult to solve these problems. There has been a consistent decline in students’ science and math scores from standardized tests, and it is a possibility that the education system may not be able to provide the engineers demanded in the near future, especially for high-level IT and advanced engineering positions. For Thailand to achieve the next level of value-added in the global economy, the government must focus on increasing the skills of the Thai labor force.
