Indonesia needs 3.8 million new skilled workers per year: Govt

Indonesia needs to produce 3.8 million skilled workers annually to meet its target of becoming the seventh largest economy in 2030, a top official has said.

Manpower Minister Hanif Dhakiri said that currently Indonesia was the 16th biggest economy with 57 million skilled workers. In 2030, Indonesia would need 113 million skilled workers.

"There is a shortage of 56 million skilled workers, and that has to be filled in 14 years," he said after signing a memorandum of understanding about vocational training at the Industry Ministry’s offices on Tuesday.

Hanif added that the government, through several ministries, would intensify vocational training.

The Manpower Ministry would also focus on vocational training centers (BLKs) in coordination with industries. Currently, 650 companies are working with the BLKs to provide internships.
