STF CONTINUES TO PUSH FOR KEY CHANGES TO FISHERIES MANAGEMENT AND LABOUR LEGISLATION THROUGH ITS LIST OF ROYAL THAI GOVERNMENT ASKS
A key component to long-term Task Force (STF) success in Thailand is the quality of legal reform by the Royal Thai Government.
Whilst significant progress has been made by the Royal Thai Government since the STF was established, current work streams have identified specific asks that relate to Supply Chain Transparency, Sustainability and Employment Practices.
If adequately addressed and enforced, these Asks will have a positive and long-lasting impact on labour practices across all industries, significantly reducing risks of human rights abuses and human trafficking.
There is a clear imperative to localize and entrench the ability to monitor and support reforms, progress and working practices, thus avoiding an unrealistic and uneconomic over-reliance on foreign business interests and western NGOs.
