Some 26 of Indonesian Ministries’ staffs came for training in bureaucratic reform in Korea.

The first batch came last Monday (November 6) and stayed for a week to have a training on reformation of bureaucratic system at Korea University.

The second batch of around 20 people are now attending the workshop.

Civil Servants attending the workshop are from National Development Planning Agency, National Land Agency, National Supervision Agency, National Civil Service Agency, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Audit Board of The Republic of Indonesia, and National Institute of Public Administration.

To see the development of economic and political system in Korea, Indonesian government sends groups of civil servants to attend a Bureaucratic Reform Leadership Training Program for National Economic Development.

One of the participants said that the purpose was to study the system that Korean government adopts. Indonesia still needs to reform its bureaucratic system to be more efficient and not to spend too much time for procedures.

Korea’s economic miracle that helped it become one of the largest economies in Asia inspired Indonesian government to send civil officials to Korea to take lessons from Korea.

Learning from Korea’s bureaucratic system is important to enhance Indonesian competitiveness in Asia.

Indonesia economic growth is one of the highest in Asia with GDP growth of 6.4 percent in 2011, according to World Bank data.
