Solving Baliís Unemployment Problem: Oceans Aweigh

Bali Governor Made Pastika Wants to Reduce Unemployment by Exporting Young Cruise Professionals


Bali News: Solving Baliís Unemployment Problem: Oceans Aweigh

(4/27/2012)

Radar Bali writes that Bali’s governor Made Mangku Pastika has a reputation for coming up with ingenious and creative ideas in managing Bali.

His latest idea may, in fact, offer a brilliant approach to providing quality education to young Balinese, creating high-paid employment for young workers and satiating the seemingly endless demand for Indonesian cruise workers.

Governor Pastika suggests that the government should pay for the training of Balinese youth seeking employment on board international cruise ships, including the cost of their travel to their first port of engagement.

The governor’s idea was tabled during provincial budget discussions at his office on April 25, 2012, whilst discussing ways of reducing unemployment on the island.

In exploring the idea, the governor said: “Yesterday I sent off 240 young people to work on cruise ships. Apparently the need for such staff overseas is very high. Companies are looking for 1,800 people, but we are only able to supply 240. We must be able to do something about this.”

The governor called on the Manpower and Transmigration office to look into the possibility of providing job training to meet the demands of the cruise industry. Adding, “If necessary, cooperate with training centers. The education is only two years. And, what’s more, there’s a certain (high) wage that awaits at the end of training.”

“We could pay for everything from the time the education begins until the time they leave for their assignment. There’s already a training center, We don’t need to create a buildings,” continued the governor.

Developing the theme further, the governor said: “Who would be the participants? There are 82 ‘poor’ villages in Bali. Take one or two people from each of these villages. We don’t need to ask anything from the participants being prepared for work. This is a program to reduce unemployment.”

Admitting the proposal would require more study, the Governor hopes the training program for the cruise industry could be included in the 2013 budget.
