"If according to the rules two-thirds of the total, if the needs of 3 thousand workers, then we need 2 thousand people should be local workers, not necessarily from West Bandung regency," he told reporters in Bandung, Thursday (08/06/2017 ).
Anang explained that local workers will occupy various positions of work but if the job requires special skills then requires experts from abroad.
"For local workers he can occupy any position, but for the skill that is difficult and here no one is indeed a foreign worker," said Anang.

"Some time ago PLN reported the development of the three power plant projects and I hope the local workers are involved when the three power plants start operating," he said.
He asked PT PLN (Persero) Distibusi West Java to immediately prepare criteria and what classification should be met local workers in the three power plants.
"Of course must be with the right classification, then the local government can prepare from now, because the operating time is 3 years away," he concluded. (MAT)
