Labour Minister Chalerm Yubamrung will this month sign an agreement on conditions for the employment of Thai workers in Qatar, labour permanent secretary Jirasak Sukonthachart said on Wednesday. 

Mr Jirasak, who is also acting secretary-general of the Social Security Office, said the ratification will cover employment contracts, travel expenses and salary and will be agreed with Qatar's ambassador to Thailand.

He said the ratification is needed since Qatar wants to recruit as many as 30,000 Thai workers to work in various fields such as architecture and engineering, and will include technical experts and crews for its flagship airline Qatar Airways.
