Decent work profile: East Nusa Tenggara (Nusa Tenggara Timur)
The Decent Work Profile for East Nusa Tenggara has been prepared by national consultants in collaboration
with the Ministry of Manpower and Transmigration (Depnakertrans), the Central Bureau of
Statistics (Badan Pusat Statistics), and the University of Jakarta, with technical assistance of the ILO.
National partners identified a list of decent work indicators relevant for Indonesia during a 2010 consultation
workshop in Jakarta. From this, a national Decent Work Country Profile was developed comprising
both statistical data and legal and policy information in an integrated assessment of recent progress
toward decent work. The Profile was prepared by academics from the University of Jakarta, with the
cooperation and involvement of trade unions and employer’s representatives, the Ministry of Manpower
and Transmigration, Ministry of Finance, BAPPENAS, and BPS, and its content was reviewed through
an extensive consultation process before being launched in May 2012. During the post-launch discussions,
constituents expressed a desire to develop a number of provincial profiles to capture divergent
decent work trends at the subnational level. The Decent Work Profile for East Nusa Tenggara is one of
three pilot provincial profiles developed in Indonesia to date.
