Indonesia’s private sector will need about 2 million skilled workers within the next three years to support growing business activities, according to the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin).
Kadin said on Tuesday that the demand for workers was based on the projection of 13 business associations including the Indonesian Shipbuilding Association (Iperindo), Indonesian Employers Association (Apindo), Indonesian Furniture Industry and Handicraft Association (Asmindo) and the Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI) .
Kadin chairman Suryo Bambang Sulisto said these combined business sectors would create job opportunities for 2.91 million people a year, but 80 percent of the jobs would be unskilled.
“Cooperation between the government and the business sector is needed to improve the quality of young workers,” Suryo said during the opening ceremony of a meeting titled “Improving the Quality of Young Workers Approaching Developed Indonesia in 2025”.
