“I invite the entire community, if you want to access this program, you can access it directly at Bizhub Kemnaker.go.id. Ladies and gentlemen, you can all gather in one group, then apply to Bizhub Ministry of Manpower,” said the Minister of Manpower, at the 2023 TKM Expo Festival in Newsdelivers.com , Saturday (9/12/2023) evening.
The Minister of Manpower said that one of the tasks of the Ministry of Manpower is to expand employment opportunities. In expanding the job market, the Ministry of Manpower facilitates people to be able to work and become independent entrepreneurs.
“Through this TKM program, we prepare them to become entrepreneurs, we accompany them, then there is capital assistance, after they gather in one group, we hope they will become independent entrepreneurs,” he said.
He further said that in general in Indonesia the number of independent or informal workers is greater than the number of formal workers. Seeing these conditions, the Ministry of Manpower continues to invite informal workers to apply for assistance to the Ministry of Manpower.
“The Ministry of Manpower, through the TKM program, facilitates informal or independent workers so that people who want to work independently can be facilitated. This program is spread from Sabang to Merauke,” he said.

“We meet them with buyers, with investors, with banks so that they will be more motivated to make their businesses more independent, and the more we encourage them like this, the more new workers will be recruited,” he said.
