About the ILO in Indonesia

Indonesia and the ILO have collaborated very closely since the country became a member of the ILO on 12 June 1950. Using its unique tripartite structure, the ILO works in close collaboration with the Ministry of Manpower and Transmigration, the Indonesian Employers’ Organization (Apindo) and the main trade unions — All Indonesian Trade Union Confederation (KSPSI reconciliation), All Indonesia Trade Union Confederation (KSPSI – AITUC), Confederation of All Indonesian Trade Union (KSBSI), Confederation of Indonesian Trade Unions (KSPI), Confederation of Indonesian Moslem Trade Union (K-SARBUMUSI), and Confederation of National Trade Union (KSPN).

Taking into account the priorities of Indonesia’s Government, the ILO’s mandate and focus on its tripartite constituents, three priority areas have been identified for the Decent Work Country Programme (DWCP) for Indonesia 2020 – 2025:
