The government regulation in lieu of work creation (Perppu) will soon become a law and be ratified by the DPR RI, this policy has indeed represented the interests of many parties, starting from the interests of the state to be safe from the threat of a global crisis, the interests of investors by guaranteeing a legal umbrella to represent the interests of the wider community because it is able to bring about the creation of wide employment opportunities.

The House of Representatives of the Republic of Indonesia (DPR RI) has approved regarding the Draft Law (RUU) regarding the Stipulation of Perppu Number 2 of 2022 concerning Job Creation (Ciptaker) to proceed to level II discussions or it can be said that it will be brought to the Plenary Meeting.

The decision was signed at a meeting of the Legislative Body or Baleg of the DPR and the Regional Representative Council (DPD RI) together with the Government of Indonesia. Please note that there are as many as 7 factions that approve the Job Creation Perppu.

Regarding the Perppu on Job Creation being passed into law, the Secretary General (Sekjen) of the Ministry of Manpower (Kemnaker RI), Anwar Sanusi admitted that he was very optimistic that the existence of Perppu Number 2 of 2022 could indeed be a form of concrete solution for Indonesia.

It is not without reason that recently many experts have calculated and predicted that in 2023 the world will be shrouded in many global uncertainties, which will more or less affect various countries including Indonesia.

Therefore, with the swift action that has been taken by the Government of Indonesia, namely issuing the Job Creation Perppu which will soon be passed to become the law, Anwar Sanusi admits that the presence of this regulation is able to be a solution for Indonesia in facing all the haunting global uncertainties.

It didn’t end there, however, the Secretary General of the Indonesian Ministry of Manpower added that indeed the existence of the Job Creation Perrpu itself was able to provide a legal umbrella as well as fill the void and provide legal certainty because the Ciptaker Law was previously considered to have conditionally unconstitutional status through a Constitutional Court (MK) Decision.

In this decision, the Constitutional Court then made an appeal to the Government of Indonesia to immediately make improvements to the previous Job Creation Law. However, because the conditions in 2023 are that there are many problems in the world and are also full of crises due to various things, the President of the Republic of Indonesia (RI), Joko Widodo then immediately took a quick and strategic step, namely forming a Job Creation Perppu as a solution.

Because if you try to make a formation with steps in accordance with the making of laws and regulations, then of course it will take a very long time, whereas on the other hand Indonesia really needs a strategic policy as soon as possible so as not to get caught up in the flow of global uncertainty.

For this reason, by using his special privileges, President Jokowi has shown how the Government really cares about the interests of the people and also makes great efforts so that this nation does not get swept up in a current of all-in-crisis like other countries in the world.

Therefore, a Job Creation Perppu was formed as an effort to prevent all of this. Then, Anwar Sanusi again explained that apart from being a legal umbrella, the existence of this policy also had a very positive impact on the development of the investment climate because investors immediately assumed there was clear legal certainty so they dared to invest in the country.

It’s different when, for example, this rule is not immediately launched by the Government, it will actually make investors reluctant to continue investing their capital in the country because there is indeed no clear legal umbrella to protect and guarantee the investment activities they carry out.

In addition, it turns out that the existence of Perppu Number 2 of 2022 concerning Job Creation, which will soon be drafted and passed into law by the DPR RI, really accommodates the interests of the Indonesian people. Because it is undeniable that Indonesia has a large population and an abundance of productive age generations.

Surely they really need a guarantee of wide open job opportunities to be able to support and assist their daily life needs, especially to make a living. Therefore, one form of government support for all its people is the Job Creation Perppu which is able to create a wide range of job opportunities.

This is also in line with when investors, both foreign and domestic, continue to be active in making their investments, it is not impossible that the encouragement and opportunity for people to get jobs will also be wide open.

So it is very clear that this Perppu Cipta Kerja has represented many parties, starting from being able to save the country from the threat of a world crisis, then also becoming a legal umbrella that guarantees certainty for investors’ investment activities, which will also be directly proportional to the opening of employment opportunities more broadly for all public.
