Although compared with other countries in Indonesia is still low, Cabinet Secretary (Seskab) Pramono Anung understand if there is a frying-issuance of the Presidential Regulation (Perpres) No. 20 of 2018 on the use of foreign workers, because it is already the political year.
But Seskab asserted that the Presidential Regulation really only facilitates the administration of the use of Foreign Workers (TKA), especially for the upper middle class workforce, which has been tortuous, and its management is too long.
“The improvements made in the Presidential Regulation is the administration of the administration so that for example a director who has worked here a lot then they must first go to Singapore for a temporary permit to enter again. Well that is so-so that arranged simplified. So instead of making it easier for foreign workers to enter. No, not at all, “said Seskab to reporters after attending a Limited Meeting at the Presidential Palace Bogor, West Java, Wednesday (18/4) afternoon.
Therefore, to those who object to the issuance of Presidential Regulation No. 20 of 2018, Pramono Anung hopes to read the Presidential Regulation prior to expressing his opinion.
“Many who have not read the Presidential Regulation have responded,” said Pramono.
The Provincial Secretary reiterated that the issuance of the Presidential Regulation concerning the use of foreign workers was not related to non-skill personnel, but only on the medium level upwards, the managers, general managers and directors who would extend the work permit were not required to go back to Singapore come here.
Secondly, it is also related to, for example, the position of a finance director wanting to move into the operations director, that was prior permission first. “That. Too cumbersome. Well now that’s made easier, “said Seskab.
