The Indonesian Government affirmed commitment to improve inclusiveness in employment for persons with disabilities by focusing on this issue in Indonesia’s G20 presidency.

Presidential Special Staffer Angkie Yudistia said that Indonesia will uphold ‘inclusive labour market and affirmative decent jobs for persons with disabilities’ as a main issue in its G20 presidency.

“It is such a great breakthrough. Indonesia shows that no one will be left behind in programs of the Government, private sector, and other sectors,” Angkie said during the G20 campaign adopting a theme ‘Stimulating the Involvement of Persons with Disabilities towards Inclusiveness’, in Jakarta, Wednesday (01/26).

She added that Indonesia will also encourage other G20 countries to formulate affirmative and inclusive policies for persons with disabilities to prepare them to participate in the job market and anticipate digital disruption and impacts of the pandemic.

“The G20’s international cooperation will serve as a momentum to make a breakthrough. The presidency is our framework to set a benchmark with other G20 countries and learn from each other’s experience in order to create the right inclusive ecosystem to meet the needs of the disabled,” she said.

For that reason, she added, improving access to skills development is needed to materialize an inclusive employment.

“The access should not only balance the supply and demand of labour, but also be adjusted to the types of disabilities,” she stated. (PR of Ministry of Manpower/UN) (RAS/LW)
