Jakarta: The House of Representatives (DPR) is targeting the establishment of an Omnibus Law on Job Creation to be completed by August 2020. The Omnibus law is expected to become a gift for Indonesia's 75th Anniversary.
"We hope that it will be finished by the 75th anniversary of independence. It would be a gift for the independence celebration," said Deputy Speaker of the People’s Consultative Assembly (MPR) Arsul Sani at the Parliamentary Complex, Senayan, Jakarta on Wednesday, January 15, 2020.
Arsul said the government was still working on Omnibus Law. The Omnibus law will be completed within 100 working days after being discussed in the DPR.
"The Omnibus law is being finalized by the government. It is hoped that this can be completed within 100 working days," Arsul said.
The substance of the Omnibus Law on Job Creation covers 11 clusters namely Simplification of Licensing, Investment Requirements, Employment, Ease, Empowerment, and Protection of MSMEs, Ease of Doing Business, Research and Innovation Support, Government Administration, Imposition of Sanctions, Land Procurement, Investment and Government Projects, and Economic Zones.
Minister of Law and Human Rights Yasonna Laoly said the preparation of the Omnibus Law on Job Creation has entered the finalization stage. As of January 9, 2020, the draft had reached 95 percent completion.
"All points must be completed. This is 95 percent, so it’s just a matter of finalization," said Yasonna at the Office of the Coordinating Ministry for the Economy of Jakarta on Thursday, January 9, 2020.
Yasonna claimed that the government involved workers in the discussion process until the completion of the Omnibus Law. That way, the results are according to their wants and needs.
