Japan is considered an important labour market with the potential to meet needs in terms of income, knowledge, and experience. It is also a target country that Thai workers are interested in and want to travel to for work. I am delighted for all the technical intern training graduates in Japan, and I appreciate the perseverance, patience, responsibility, and diligence in fulfilling the work for the specified period. From now, I ask that you bring your skills, experience, and discipline gained from training in Japan and use this to develop your work or use it as a guideline for running a personal business to success. As for the occupational support money received today, please continue to use it for the greatest benefit of yourself and your family,” said Mr. Suchart in his speech.
