TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - President Joko `Jokowi` Widodo stated that in 2019, the government would build and improve the quality of Indonesian human resources.
“Starting in 2019, the government would change the flagship program, from infrastructure into a massive program to strengthen the human resources,” said Jokowi during a speech in the 47th Anniversary of the Indonesian Civil Servants Corps (KORPRI) at Istora Senayan Jakarta, on Thursday, Nov. 29.
According to Jokowi, the government has been focused on building infrastructure in the regions within the past four years. “Through this way, the government opens the isolation, builds connectivity, strengthens the national unity, and builds a new economic center," he said.
The quality of human resources in government and private institutions must be significantly improved. Meanwhile, the quality of human resource in the community must also be improved since a young age.
Jokowi said the Indonesian human resources must be able to take advantage of the opportunities of the global change and rapid development of technology.
“I ask all the ASN (State Civil Apparatus) to immediately strengthen themselves, become agents of transformation of strengthening human resources, and building talents of the nation’s children,” the president said.
Jokowi believed that the transformation of the quality of Indonesian human resources could run and provide positive results for the nation.
