Jakarta (ANTARA) - The Manpower Ministry has urged vocational training instructors to continue to improve their skills and competence, including by participating in the Instructor Expertise Competition (KKIN).

The ministry's secretary general, Anwar Sanusi, conveyed the statement at the 2024 Regional-Level KKIN in Padang, West Sumatra, on Wednesday (May 8, 2024).
