Emrus Sihombing: The Job Creation Law is Precisely Oriented to People’s Welfare


Jakarta – The government recently passed the Job Creation Law (Job Creation Law) and the Job Creation Perppu as an effort to accelerate national economic recovery. However, this action sparked controversy and a series of large-scale demonstrations across Indonesia.

However, there are figures who believe that someone needs to hold a demonstration in support of the Ciptaker Law because this right is guaranteed by the law. This is because the contents of the Ciptaker Law are oriented towards the welfare of the Indonesian people in general and can actually have a positive impact on overcoming the shortage of manpower in all fields and levels of business and enterprise.

According to Pelita Harapan University Postgraduate Lecturer, Dr. Emrus Sihombing, as a positive legal reality in the country, the Ciptaker Law has been able to build new optimism in terms of significant employment and economic growth in Indonesia going forward, of course since the Ciptaker Law was actually implemented without significant disruption.

“Even better, this law is able to build legal certainty, including the imposition of measurable sanctions. he said.

In addition, Dr. Emrus also considers that when examined carefully, the contents of the Citapker Law are full of business licensing conveniences, so that opportunities arise and the development of the number and various fields of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises known as MSMEs.

“The bureaucratic procedures and flow of establishing a business field are very, very simple. The establishment of a Limited Company (PT), for example, can only be done by one person or referred to as an individual PT,” he said.

His party also emphasized that the number of members forming cooperatives as a field of business to advance the people’s economy has been greatly reduced, so that it is not as many as before the birth of this Job Creation Law. MSME capital assistance from the government is one of the main focuses in the Job Creation Law.

“With the Job Creation Law, the business climate in the country is in favor of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs). Micro Enterprises are able to develop into Small Businesses. Meanwhile, Small Businesses move to become Medium Enterprises, which in turn, Medium Enterprises develop into Big Businesses. As a result of this, new Micro Enterprises have sprung up. And so on,” he concluded.

Dr. Emrus also sees the government’s seriousness in the job creation law in favor of socio-economic welfare for all Indonesian people.

“It can be seen in the contents of government regulations (PP) and presidential regulations (Perpers) as derivative regulations. A number of these PPs and Presidential Regulations were prepared taking into account, accepting and considering all the aspirations of the Indonesian people in at least 11 main areas in the Job Creation Law, namely: (1) Improving the Investment Ecosystem and Business Activities; (2) Business Licensing; (3) Employment; (4) Ease, Protection and Empowerment of Cooperatives and MSMEs; (5) Ease of Doing Business; (6) Research and Innovation Support; (7) Land Procurement; (8) Economic Zones; (9) Central Government Investment and Acceleration of National Strategic Projects; (10) Government Administration; and (11) Guidance and Supervision and Imposition of Sanctions. All contents of the PP and Presidential Decree are oriented towards the socio-economic welfare of the Indonesian people,” he said.
