VP Ma’ruf Amin Calls for Improvement of Public Service, Bureaucracy
Vice President Ma’ruf Amin has called for improvement of public service and bureaucracy in order to compete at the global level.
“In addition to improving public service, we must also enhance bureaucracy so it can improve Indonesia’s indicators among international communities. It would also be beneficial to attract investment,” he said at the Ceremony of Award for the 2021 High-Level Government Official Selection and Launching of High-Level Government Official Information System 4.0 held virtually, Thursday (10/06).
According to the VP, organizing a comprehensive leader selection process is a way to improve bureaucracy.
“We need to pay special attention to the improvement of a comprehensive leader selection system so that all these better standards can be realized,” he said, while urging for a detailed and comprehensive human resources management.
“Policy development and state civil apparatus management at the national and the regional level that are contextual and in line with the grand design of national and regional developments is important,” he said.
The VP also expressed hope that no institution is left behind and all institutions meet the policy standards and indicators that have been set.
“I hope that by 2024, all ministries/institutions, provincial governments, municipalities will be able to meet the standards that have been set. No ministry/institution should be left behind. All Personnel Supervisors in central and regional government institutions must have a commitment to realizing an excellent and robust bureaucratic leadership,” he said, while expressing appreciation to institutions that received “Excellent” and “Good” ratings for the High-Level Government Official selection process assessment.
In the meantime, Head of the Civil Servant Apparatus Commission Agus Pramusinto pointed out that the assessment for the award has been carried out comprehensively, focusing on several strategic aspects, including planning, implementation, reporting, management innovation, and violation of the merit system made during the selection.
Agus also expressed hope that the award could push all government institutions to continue improving bureaucracy and public services.
“I hope we can build upon the great efforts that have been made for a world-class bureaucracy,” he remarked. (BPMI of Vice Presidential Secretariat/UN) (DH/EP)
