 Labour Minister Sirichai Distakul joined Asean ministers to sign the CLMVT (Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam and Thailand) Joint Declaration on Safe Migration to strengthen regional efforts to end decades of illegal labour in five Southeast Asian nations. The pact formed at last week's ministerial meeting on labour affairs in Da Nang, Vietnam, affirms Thailand's neighbouring nations' support of the government's latest effort to crack down on illegal migrant workers, said Gen Sirichai after the three-day meeting that ended on Thursday.
