Observer: Partnerships with tech companies in the HR space are important

Jakarta (MidLand) – Firman Kurniawan, digital communications observer from the University of Indonesia (UI), highlighted the importance of Indonesia strengthening partnerships with foreign technology companies in the field of digital human resources (HR) development.

“It is important that Indonesia receives investments aimed at developing human resources, cognitive capabilities, the ability to create programs and code for device needs,” Firman said when contacted by MidLand on Wednesday.

According to Firman, through partnerships in the field of digital human resource development, the knowledge transfer that takes place can encourage Indonesia to produce its own high-quality gadgets.

“With such a large population, (Indonesia) is not only used as a market but also as a player in the production process as a local supplier,” he said.

Therefore, Indonesia can use its abundant human resources to strengthen its bargaining position towards global technology companies to strengthen cooperation in the field of human resource development.

Meanwhile, from the manufacturing sector, Firman encouraged technology companies building factories in Indonesia to increase the level of domestic components (TKDN) in their products so that they can produce added value for Indonesia.

“In addition to absorbing more labor, the products used by Indonesians also come from Indonesia, thus providing added value,” Firman said.

It is known that Apple’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Tim Cook arrived at the presidential palace in Jakarta on Wednesday morning to meet with the President of the Republic of Indonesia Joko Widodo and discuss the US technology company’s investment in Indonesia. .

Communications and Information Minister Budi Arie Setiadi pointed out that the discussion of Apple’s investment as the largest technology giant in the United States could make Indonesia a global supply chain for these products.

Meanwhile, according to Industry Minister Agus Gumiwang Kartasasmita, Apple takes a unique approach so that the government can create a Domestic Component Level (TKDN) to create added value for the country.

“Therefore, Indonesia’s interest remains in creating added value in Indonesia,” Agus said.
