The companies in Indonesia that were most affected include the food and beverage industry, real estate, and construction. However, most companies still keep their employees.

The survey said only 17.8 percent of businesses resorted to layoffs, 25.6 percent imposed unpaid leave, and 10 percent implemented both.


3. Young Indonesians Unaware of Regional Election Candidates

A survey found that 62 percent of respondents do not know the history and experience of the candidates to head their region ahead of the 2020 Regional Elections in Indonesia.

According to the Commissioner of Young People Wildanshah, the survey result is a bad sign for regional election candidates as it reflects their inability to take advantage of younger Indonesians who are the country’s bonus demographic.

“Young people [in Indonesia] are randomly selecting candidates which is dangerous for the younger generation.”

Wildan believes that a lack of interaction between regional election candidates and young people is to blame for the sheer unawareness ahead of the 2020 Regional Elections.

He added that the candidates most likely have insufficient information about Indonesia’s young voters, thus resulting in weak involvement of the group in their campaign programs.
