Mataram, W Nusa Tenggara The Ministry of Manpower has encouraged local governments to significantly contribute to streamlining the management, service, and protection of Indonesian migrant workers through the application of the One-Stop Integrated Service (LTSA).
Manpower Minister Ida Fauziyah noted that the LTSA is a program to improve the management of placement and protection of migrant workers.
“The central government and local governments shoulder the responsibility of providing services that are quick, cheap, simple, and transparent for migrant workers,” Fauziyah stated during her visit to LTSA in Central Lombok District, West Nusa Tenggara, on Friday.
The minister highlighted that the LTSA was aimed at preventing non-procedural placement of migrant workers and boosting the Productive Migrant Village (Desmigratif) Program.
“We have developed 45 LTSA across Indonesia,” she revealed.
In accordance with Law No. 18 of 2017 on the protection of migrant workers, local governments are tasked with improving the management of placement, training, and protection of migrant workers.
In future, Fauziyah affirmed that the LTSA should also be applied to settle disputes to help migrant workers. “They do not have to go to Jakarta to settle any problems on migrant workers in their respective regions,” the minister stated.
