Presidential Staffer Billy Mambrasar Meets With Bali Regional Secretary to Discuss Youth Talent Management
Date 29 November 2020
As part of his visit to Bali province, Special Staffer to the President Billy Mambrasar, on Sunday (29/11), met with the Regional Secretary of Bali Province Dewa Made Indra and the ranks of the Bali Provincial Government.
The meeting, held at the Governor’s office, discussed, among others, the development of human resources, especially young Indonesian talents.
On this occasion, Billy talked about Papuan Talent Management, a program he is implementing in collaboration with Ministry of Home Affairs under the directive of President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo. “This program is part of the National Talent Management currently being worked on by the Presidential Staff Office,” Billy said.
Papuan Talent Management, he added, has also launched a website with a similar name, containing data on Papuan children who have considerable achievements and exerted efforts to develop Indonesia.
The formation and inventory of these talents, Billy added, are directly connected to the programs of relevant ministries/institutions. “For example, if we need a barista or certified diver. So far, it is difficult to find a certified diver, it is difficult to find the (particular) works and those who need (workers) also cannot (find the workers). So, through this Talent Management, you can just search for it from the website,” he said.
Billy expressed hope that a similar program can also be implemented in Bali Province. “I might be able to provide input if Bali can also encourage (the establishment) of Balinese Talent Management,” he said.
The Presidential Staffer also expressed appreciation to the Bali Provincial Government for providing excellent guidance to the Papuan students currently studying in the region.
The meeting also discussed some issues on tourism development, distribution of Smallholder Business Credit (KUR), MSMEs development, and teaching staff for children with special needs.
During this visit, Billy is also scheduled to meet with the millennial farmer community. Previously, he had also met a number of millennial farmers in three provinces.
For the record, Billy, who is also the Indonesian Ambassador of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), is carrying a mission to create 100,000 millennial farmers. The program is a collaborative effort with Ministry of Agriculture to generate 2.5 million millennial farmers in Indonesia. (SLN/UN) (FI/MMB)
