Young Intellectual Forum Reveals the Positive Side of the Job Creation Law
Jakarta – It is believed that the implementation of the Job Creation Law will provide sustainable positive benefits for Indonesia. This was stated by the Co-founder of the Young Intellectual Forum, Muhammad Sutisna, M.Si, Friday (20/10).
He believes that supporting the Job Creation Law is an important step to encourage Indonesia’s economic transformation.
“In the future, the implementation of this legal product has the potential to increase investment, improve the business climate and create jobs. “It is ensured that implementation goes hand in hand with the interests of the community, environmental preservation and workers’ rights,” explained Sutisna.
Furthermore, Sutisna assessed that the role of all parties, including government, civil society and business, is needed in navigating the journey towards successful economic transformation.
“Transparency, public participation and strict supervision are the keys to ensuring that the Job Creation Law can provide sustainable benefits for Indonesia,” he continued.
Likewise, Head of the BRIN Population Research Center, Nawawi, SE., MA., Ph.D. said that currently Indonesia is faced with big challenges in terms of employment, with 2 million job seekers entering the labor market every year and a shortage of qualified workers with education below the average junior high school level.
“Indonesia’s current challenges are very big when it comes to employment. Every year there are 2 million job seekers entering the job market. Not to mention the challenge of the quality of our workforce, which still has an average education of less than junior high school. “So, if it is not maintained, a good investment climate is not created, this will automatically absorb workers,” he said.
According to him, the Job Creation Law is a way out of the industrial conflicts that have been occurring in Indonesia.
“This law is a solution for how we can create an investment and business climate whose aim will be to have a positive impact on various interests, including those of the government, employers and workers,” he said.
Nawawi revealed that a good investment climate will have an impact on increasing production, which will ultimately impact economic improvement, job creation and increased economic growth.
“A good investment climate will increase production, which in the end will also have an impact on improving the economy, creating jobs, increasing economic growth, which means it will also have a positive impact on workers,” he said.
