Among the report's recommendations:
- Promoting employment opportunities for older persons is both timely and indispensable for enhancing Thailand’s productivity and socio-economic development.
- Expanding the sectors where older people can find work. Many currently work in agriculture but other potential sectors include commerce, manufacturing, transport, storage, communications and, in rural areas, community-based cottage industries.
- Increasing the income-generating potential of older people is essential, to mitigate the large gap between the over 60’s and younger workers.
