Japanese Makers Plan Training Program To Train 10,000 Thai Auto Workers

Four major Japanese automakers with assembly plants in Thailand, Toyota, Honda, Nissan and Mitsubishi, are setting up a 10-year training program to educate up to 10,000 Thai technical people and executives of local parts suppliers and related automotive businesses, Asahi reported.

The program, sparked in part by the beginnings of a shortage of competent auto workers in Thailand, will be funded by the Japanese and Thai governments under provisions of a free trade pact agreed in principal last week. It is due to begin by the end of the year.

Training in Japan

It will bring groups of 10-20 Thai specialists to Japan annually for intensive training courses, after which they'll go back to Thailand to teach a series of courses lasting from a few weeks up to three months, at schools and factories around Thailand, the paper said.

Production techniques

The courses will cover production techniques—molding, casting and machining; die-making, including design, schedule and quality control; and engineering subjects like computer-aided design and manufacturing.

The Thai motor industry is expected to hit the 1 million vehicle mark for the first time this year, and about 90% of Thai production is from Japanese-affiliated makers, the paper noted.

With a roster of more than 2,000 suppliers already in place, the Bangkok government is pushing hard to develop a complete parts industry capable of designing and making all the components that go into vehicles.
