Expert: The Ciptaker Law is an Important Pillar for Indonesia’s Economic Growth


Jakarta – The existence of the Job Creation Law (Ciptaker) is one of the most important pillars to continue to drive export figures and support economic growth in Indonesia. This was stated by an Economic Observer at the University of Indonesia (UI), Fithra Faisal, in an online discussion with Communi&Co, on Friday (14/04/2023).

According to him, in order to increase the role of industry, the government must improve infrastructure, human resources and institutions.

“The Ciptaker Law was able to create the widest possible employment opportunities, besides that it was also able to increase the economic growth target at a minimum, so that Indonesia would be released from the middle-class economy,” said Fithra.

The UI Economic Observer explained that there are aspects of equity and simplification in the Ciptaker Law. So far, investors still do not have a clear legal umbrella when they invest in Indonesia. Therefore, we really need a legal umbrella in a short time, one of which is through the ratification of the Ciptaker Law.

Another resource person in the discussion, Special Staff (Stafsus) of the Minister of State Secretariat (Mensesneg), Faldo Maldini, considered that so far there are still overlapping regulations and there is no serious intention to improve them. Therefore, the Omnibus Law on the Ciptaker Law was held to fix all of this.

“Moreover, the world is currently also experiencing a crisis of economic uncertainty, including the role of Ukraine and Russia, so there is a dire need for regulations that are really clear about all of this,” said Faldo.

Furthermore, Faldo explained, so far the Government’s efforts to be able to improve communication patterns in a linear manner have continued. In addition, there are still many discussions in the community, but in fact there are still misperceptions because not all of the points of the Ciptaker Law are pro-oligarchy, because in fact companies cannot carry out arbitrary layoffs.

“There are more as if this law is said to be not pro-laborers. In fact, in the Ciptaker Law, everything has been regulated because trade unions can speak freely,” said Faldo.

Faldo appealed to those who reject the Ciptaker Law and think that this rule only benefits big companies, they should not only look at a rule from one side, but in the life of the nation, they must look at a wider horizon because Indonesia is so big, so they can pay attention to the fate of workers. in other areas, in terms of equity.

On the same occasion, the Founder of the Indonesian Smart Communication Movement (GCKI), Ellys L. Pambayun said, the Government’s efforts to continue to build public aspirations and participation have been carried out a lot, by carrying out outreach, discussions and so on.

“However, it turns out that the public still perceives it poorly, therefore the Government’s communication pattern actually has to be improved, which is not too linear,” explained Ellys.

Meanwhile, Secretary General of the Central Executive Board of the Indonesian Young Entrepreneurs Association (BPP HIPMI), Anggawira also agreed that the Ciptaker Law is a solution to labor problems in Indonesia.

The output of the Ciptaker Law, continued Anggawira, was indeed to be able to simplify the bureaucracy, so that business operations could be far more effective and efficient.

“I think all the regulations are on the track, because equity has also occurred and is not only centered on Java Island. Involvement of all stakeholders has also been carried out in the preparation of the task force and also in their respective fields,” concluded Anggawira.
