It took Thailand more than 55 years to become middle high income developing countries.

The contributions of vocational manpower have not been very high despite the fact that Thailand more than 850 vocational and related schools having almost one million students each year.

The public vocational school emphasized on technical or science and technology, and in the opposite private vocational school emphasized on non-technical areas. The majority of technical students enrolled in public schools accounted for 78 % or 350,000 students.

Majority of Thai labour market has low skills and low levels of education as well as low salary. Less than 64% received less than 10,000 baht a month.
