As representative of private sector, ISD was invited to the discussion on the implementation of Government Regulation (PP) 83 on ‘Employment of Competent Technical Workers in Services Trade’ that was held by Ministry of Trade Directorate of Negotiation in Services Trade (DPPJ Kemendag) on Friday 28/02 at Morrissey Hotel, Jakarta. We welcome the regulation’s intention to raise Indonesian workers’ competence. However, the main concern is how the regulation be implemented given it requires certification of many professions while a huge portion of Indonesian workers are still employed in less skill-intensive sectors and professions. Upskilling of services providers should be prioritized before the implementation of mandatory certification
