Education & Human Capital

As around half of Indonesia’s population is currently under the age of 30, President Joko Widodo, better known as President Jokowi, has repeatedly stressed the need for the country to overhaul its education system in order to prepare the future workforce to compete in an information-, technology- and creativity-driven global marketplace. While currently on hold due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the construction of a new capital city powered by smart technologies in East Kalimantan will further drive local demand for skilled engineers capable of spearheading the government’s Making Indonesia 4.0 initiative, a vision designed to prepare the country for the increasing automation of industry. This chapter contains interviews with Nadiem Makarim, Minister of Education and Culture; and Tony Fernandes, CEO, AirAsia Group.
