Suu Kyi asks Myanmar migrant workers to be loyal to their employers

Myanmar State Counselor and Foreign Minister Aung San Suu Kyi urged Myanmar migrant workers in Thailand to behave as if they are guests here, be loyal to and communicate with their employers.

Addressing a select group of about 500 migrant workers at Thalay Thai market in Samut Sakhon province Thursday, she said it was normal for petty problems to occur between workers and their employers and urged both sides to solve the problems in a peaceful manner.

She added that if both Thailand and Myanmar join hand-in-hand in development and understand each other, all the problems can be overcome.

Ms Suu Kyi told the audience that she would like to see migrant workers to work legally in Thailand and she promised to press for the quicker issuance of certificates of identification (CI) for the workers so that they can live, work and travel legally in Thailand.

Questioned by the workers about why they need health security cards and alien certificates and why passport charges are different, she stressed the importance of alien certificates and health cards.

As for the different passport charges, she suggested that the problem might stem from the brokers who charge different rates. She then asked the Burmese labour minister who accompanied her in the trip to explain to the workers.
