JAKARTA - West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil embraces the company to support development programs in West Java Province. That was done by Emil, the Governor's nickname, for the sake of a synergic presence between the West Java Provincial Government program and a program organized by the company on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
"So, before the company disburses CSR, chat first with the Governor. Later the Governor will detect what problems there are in West Java, so as not to be out of budget, but not effective," said Emil, his nickname, on Corporate Communications, Social Responsibility and Security activities Astra International Executive Forum, at Menara Astra, Jl. Gen. Sudirman No.Kav 5-6 RT.10 / RW.11, Karet Tengsin, Tanahabang, Central Jakarta, Tuesday (12/02/2019).
Emil explained, his invitation to the company was the embodiment of the pentahelix theory. Emil added that the breakthrough was in line with the era of dynamic bureaucracy which is currently being implemented, that development must not only be carried out by the Government.
"This is a constructive theory that does not have to be with the APBD, but with the theory of pentahelix. ABGCM, namely the Academy, Business, Government, Community, and Media," Emil explained.
In addition, continued Emil, the company, that West Java is a large province contested in all respects, both from a business and political standpoint.
"60 percent of businesses compete in West Java, with a population of nearly 50 million," he said.
According to him, West Java has many advantages for investors. Among them close to Jakarta.
"So I beg for justice, the taxes are often in Jakarta, the NPWP in Jakarta, production on land, water and air in West Java," he continued.
Even though the pace of the economy in West Java is always good, the average is always above the national level every year. However, the gini ratio is rather large, so there are many inequalities. Prosperity is enjoyed by the upper middle class.
One Village One Company, Digital Village, is a number of programs rolled out to reduce existing inequality. One of the programs needs to be supported by the company through its CSR.
Emil Wants to Apply "Teaching Factory"
In addition, in utilizing the demographic bonus, Governor Emil plans to overhaul the Vocational High School (SMK) curriculum which is not in line with current economic needs. In fact, said Emil, SMK is one of the biggest contributors to unemployment in West Java.
The Vocational curriculum reshuffle aims to make graduates able to be absorbed by industry or companies. Later, the vocational curriculum in West Java will become a partnership with several employment providers.
Vocational schools that manage the Province such as teacher salaries, student subsidies and others, but later, Emil explained, Vocational Schools will work with various companies for curriculum issues.
"It will be used as a partnership, so the assets will be owned by the Provincial Government, the teachers will be paid by the Provincial Government, the children will be subsidized by the Provincial Government, but the curriculum will be Astra curriculum, later the curriculum will be Indofood curriculum and so on," Emil said.
"With Astra's great strength, the majority of its businesses in West Java are to be matched with our problems. So I entrusted them not to get vocational students to not work," Emil said.
That's what Emil said, which he hoped was present, the Teaching Factory method (TEFA), is a learning method oriented to production and business.
Where learning through TEFA is the process of mastering skills or skills carried out based on procedures and actual working standards to produce products or services ordered by consumers.
