Jakarta (ANTARA) - Manpower Minister Ida Fauziyah conveyed Indonesia's commitment to inclusive social protection and productive social dialogue to improve the welfare of workers and business continuity at the 112th Session of the International Labour Conference.

"The Indonesian government is committed to ensuring social justice for all workers, including women, youth, and people with disabilities. No one left behind," she said, according to a statement from her ministry on Thursday.

Speaking at the conference, which was held in Geneva, Switzerland, on Wednesday, Fauziyah underscored the importance of social dialogue as a basis for social contract.

She noted that investment in social dialogue bolsters the resilience of workers and creates a healthy work environment.

She also underlined the importance of investment in vocational training and education as a priority to prepare workers to face digital transformation and the green economy.

According to Fauziyah, Indonesia is ready to adapt to global pressures such as geopolitical tensions, trade rivalry, and changes in the job market.

She said that investing in lifelong learning programs would help workers adapt to changing job demands.

She also emphasized the Indonesian government's commitment to balancing economic growth with social justice and the availability of decent work.

Indonesia's labor market reform through the Job Creation Law aims to increase market flexibility, attract investment, and create more jobs while still protecting workers' rights.

In addition, Indonesia is fully supporting the International Labor Organization (ILO) in realizing its mandates.

Fauziyah also highlighted Indonesia's readiness to cooperate to promote decent work and social justice for all.

With this step, Indonesia has continued to show its commitment to creating work conditions that are better and fair for all workers, she added.
