Jakarta (ANTARA) - Head of the Indonesian Migrant Workers Protection Agency (B2PMI) Benny Rhamdani called on the agency's contract-based government employees to work fast in dealing with problems related to Indonesian migrant workers.

"I want you to work fast in responding to dynamic problems on the field. You should not move slowly and not merely focus on the absorption of budgets," he told 231 contract-based employees during an oath-taking ceremony in Jakarta on Tuesday.

Rhamdani emphasized that working quickly is in line with B2PMI's 2024 vision of "Move Massively, Work Progressively" that reflects the agency's commitment to significantly improving protection for Indonesian migrant workers and supporting humanitarian works.

He then appealed to the newly inaugurated officials to exert utmost efforts to fulfill all duties mandated at the agency.

"As the head of BP2MI, I would like to remind you all to seriously carry out the duties mandated by the state. I want you to devise solutions to improve the placement and protection of Indonesian migrant workers," he told the officials.

He also urged the new employees to maintain their integrity as state officials, noting that they all have taken an oath not only in the name of the 1945 Constitution but also in the name of God.

"We all here have taken an oath not only in the name of the country's Constitution but also in the name of God and religion. This is our responsibility (to be true to the oath)," he remarked.

The BP2MI head then reminded all employees of the agency of the importance of maintaining the positive reputation of BP2MI as a state institution.
