Indonesia holds government forum to boost job creation
The Indonesia Development Forum (IDF) 2019 will take place in July this year, signalling the government’s intent to spur jobs creation.
Organised by Indonesia’s National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas) in collaboration with the Australian government, the forum is themed Mission Possible: Seizing the Opportunities of Future Work to Drive Inclusive Growth.
“This year’s IDF will focus on the strategies to create jobs, increase productivity, and ensure that all Indonesians have access to decent work and other economic opportunities,” said Bambang Brodjonegoro, head of Bappenas, in his opening address.
Australian Ambassador to Indonesia, Gary Quinlan said “Australia is very pleased to be able to support Indonesia’s efforts to introduce reforms to labour flexibility as well as to increase Indonesia’s competitiveness and balance with dynamic global work patterns.”
