    The Indonesian government has made employment generation one of its main policy objectives for its National Midterm Development Plan, 2010-2014. However, recent progress in this area has been mixed. The political landscape has been marked by democratic transition and an ambitious programme of decentralization. The economy has faced several major crises together with the structural transition from agriculture to services. The great economic, social and political transformations of the past 15 years have had significant impacts on the labour market. Fundamental changes began in 1998 with a labour law reform programme and the key Manpower Act of 2003, which provides overarching legislative support for labour relations and further laws concerning trade unions and the settlements of disputes. The Decent Work Country Profile for Indonesia aims at critically assessing progress towards the achievement of decent work in Indonesia and at further informing social dialogue at the national level.
