Minister of Finance Sri Mulyani said investment to improve the quality of human resources is one of the important engines of Indonesia’s economic growth.
In addition to allocating part of the state budget for education, Indonesia also provides an endowment fund for education to improve the quality of education in Indonesia and support research and development.
“One of the most important and supportive investments is the quality of human resources. Therefore, our budget allocation for education and training is the largest and mandated by our constitution, 20 percent of our budget must be dedicated to education and training,” he said .
Apart from the education aspect, the quality of human resources must also be ensured from the health aspect in order to create quality, healthy and productive Indonesian human resources.
“The quality of human capital will depend on the scale of their education and also their health, and of course Indonesia designs a social safety net to ensure that human capital will have the government’s safety net especially to support the poorest,” he said.
Apart from investing in human resources, Indonesia also continues to boost the quality of infrastructure to support economic growth. If the quality of domestic infrastructure is good, more investors will invest in Indonesia.
“Our support for infrastructure development, starting from roads, toll roads, ports, airports, and especially electricity and clean water, is very significant and not only boosts the economy through our budget but also improves investment performance in Indonesia,” he said.
