  • TEMPO.CO, JakartaThe Transportation Ministry is preparing derivative regulations of Job Creation Law recently enacted by the House of Representatives (DPR) on October 5, 2020. The ministry spokesperson Adita Irawati said that the drafting will cover provisions on land, sea, air, and rail transports.

    “To follow up the Job Creation Law, from 15 government regulations that will be drafted, the Transportation Ministry plans to create four regulation drafts (RPP),” said Adita in a written statement on Thursday, October 8.

    The four RPP will cover policies concerning railway, road traffic, shipping sector, and aviation, she added.

    According to Adita, the new law had complemented four regulations on transportation, including Law No. 23 of 2007 on railways, Law No. 17 of 2008 on shipping, Law No. 1 of 2009 on aviation, and Law No. 22 of 2009 on traffic and road transportation.

    She believed that the omnibus law would improve the investment climate in the transportation sector as it would ease the licensing.

    “This will accelerate the national economic recovery because the improvement in these regulations eases the licensing, fixes overlapping rules, provides legal certainty,” she said.

    The simplification of regulations, Adita went on, would lead to a faster, more efficient, and measurable licensing process, and so boost the opportunity for investors to enter the country. “This will surely open new jobs to support investment made by the private sector,” Adita said.
