Indonesian FM calls for improved human resources

Foreign Minister Hassan Wirajuda said Monday the Indonesian nation must be able to improve its human resources in the face of full Asean economic integration in 2015.

"The full Asean economic integration in 2015 of which the blueprint has already been launched has its minuses and pluses for the Indonesian nation. To face it, we need to improve our human resources so it will not harm but will benefit this nation in its effort to speed up the attainment of its progress," he said.

Unless the Indonesian nation made preparations for the Asean economic integration which will allow free flows of goods, service and investment among Asean member states, it would lag behind other nations, he said.

One of the arrangements to be applied soon was an Asean open-sky policy which would have negative and positive impacts on Indonesia and that the country needed to produce professional human resources, he sad.

"One of the efforts to promote human resources is improving the educational sector. Both the central and regional governments are making efforts to improve our educational system which is considered quite successful. As a matter of fact, Indonesia is one of the Asian countries which see fairly high educational growth in terms of the even distribution of education and not the quality of education," he said.
