Indonesia jobs outlook 2017: Harnessing technology for growth and job creation

In this edition of the “Indonesia Jobs Outlook 2017” we examine the economic and employment trends in the country. We also explore the potential impact from the current wave of technological changes on future jobs.

It is tempting to offer a whole range of measures for Indonesia to manage the economy and the job market in light of technological advancements. However, considering the limitation of analysis, the report takes a more prudent approach and highlights only a few priorities with a hope that further analysis will be carried out which will take into account the existing policy landscape and the ongoing business and regulatory reforms. Besides that the practicality of executing policy plans that are invariably constrained by fiscal space should also be considered.
