In ASEAN, English is the official language that people have to use in communication and  in the workplace. However TDRI (Thailand Development Research Institute) disclosed that Thai labourers will be at a disadvantage especially the ones with poor English skills. Plus the wages in other countries is cheaper than Thailand. As a result of this, foreigners will be able to replace Thai’s  whose language skills are poor.
