Following statement made by the Indonesian Consul General, Mr. Tri Tharyat today, Indonesian Consulate General introduced a new mechanism for the renewal of Employment Contract without using the services of Employment Agency or Private Indonesian Manpower Supplier Company (PPTKIS) that shall entry into effect on 1 January 2017.
