The World Bank noted the number of workers in Indonesia reached 121 million in August 2017 or grew by 2.2% from the same period in the previous year. Recorded manufacturing sector creates 1.5 million jobs by 2017.

Meanwhile, at a ceremony attended by representatives of the 1,400 companies, Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati promised an increase in exports and investment in 2018. This was realized by updating several systems such as cutting the number of permits as well as the timing of licensing.

"We welcome and support the government's efforts to facilitate the business climate in Indonesia, with the new system, the Indonesian economy is expected to increase," said Suhendra.
