Jakarta: Eastern Indonesia Region Transport Project (EIRTP)

The construction industry in Indonesia is still characterized by massive number of low and unskilled workers and is lacking the necessary instruments to develop various standardized and compatible types of construction job.

Various effort have been made by both government and private sector to patch the ever-widening problems.

Many programs and projects, particularly within the portfolio of Department of Public Works, which since 1999 has undergone metamorphoses and become of Settlement and Regional Infrastructure, have been developed aiming to increase the number of certified trained and skilled construction workers.

At the same time there have also been many attempts to standardized construction job types and made them compatible with the construction industry worldwide.

However, currently, Indonesia is facing two great challenges: globalization and greater autonomy to its local and provincial government.

Construction industry in the country should be able to respond accordingly.

Looking at the magnitude of the problems and seriousness of the challenges, it is imperative for the government of Indonesia to develop training program for construction industry that aims to increase, substantially, the number of certified skilled workers, and at the same time standardized construction job types to make them compatible with similar job worldwide.
