The Royal Thai Government (RTG) is aiming to bring Thai legislation in line with international standards. The coalition applauds the RTG for this progress but reiterate much more still needs to be done. We urge the RTG to consider two crucial aspects in the next steps. First, the definition of forced labour must be harmonised. Second, forced labour must be designated as a stand-alone criminal offence.
