Impact Assessment of COVID-19 in Thailand: Employment and Labour
The COVID-19 related impact on the economy in Thailand through both direct (generated by domestic lockdown) and indirect (supply and demand shocks in supply chains, including tourism) channels is likely to be severe. There are already signals of the disruptions in the world of work in the first quarter 2020 in Thailand which are expected to deepen and broaden over the next months.
The study is based on labour force survey data for the first quarter of 2020. This is part of the series of the impact assessments of COVID-19, conducted by UN Thailand.
