Ida Fauziyah continued by emphasizing that foreign workers in Indonesia are subject to tight monitoring.

Thus, documents for the health and immigration purposes of foreign workers in Indonesia are given extra attention.

“We will monitor their health protocols and also immigration-related requirements. Once again, this is included in Indonesia’s Ministry of Manpower regulations. There are some national strategic projects that require foreign workers,” said Ida Fauziyah.

Opportunities for Indonesian workers

The recent entry of Chinese workers in Indonesia in Sulawesi is hoped to provide plenty of employment to local or Indonesian workers.

“The arrival of foreign workers is hoped to open up job opportunities for Indonesian workers hence reducing the unemployment rate,” said Ida Fauziyah on June 25.

Around 500 Chinese workers were flown in to work at a smelter factory in Konawe, Southeast Sulawesi.
