  • Bank Indonesia Survey on Foreign Workers 2009

    [FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]Just read a survey on foreign workers in Indonesia. I found it a bit confusing but you may be interested in a couple of interesting (sort of) facts. I received in pdf form so some highlights: [/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3] [/SIZE][/FONT]
    1. [FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]The number of foreign workers in Indonesia at the end of September 2009 was 45,384[/SIZE][/FONT]
    2. [SIZE=3][FONT=Times New Roman]63% of those workers reside in Jakarta[/FONT][/SIZE]
    3. [FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]Most are professionals(35%) followed by Technicians (24%) and Managers (18%) [/SIZE][/FONT]
    4. [FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]The highest proportion of those workers are from Asia – China (41%) Japan (22%) South Korea (18%) and India (13%) [/SIZE][/FONT]
    5. [FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]The majority (38%) receive salaries between 25 and 50 million a month. The construction and mining sector pays the highest salaries which were above 125 million a month while agricultural, financial, leasing and service industries paid below 10 million a month. [/SIZE][/FONT]
    6. [FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]Biggest portion of expat salaries spent on consumption (49%) [/SIZE][/FONT]
    7. [FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]The highest level of remittance was from Chinese workers while Germans were the lowest. [/SIZE][/FONT]
    [FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]That's about all I can make sense of. [/SIZE][/FONT]

      Sorry, I just checked and it said [FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]mining and extraction sector pays the highest salaries which were above 125 million a month. That's the closest they came to mentioning oil. [/SIZE][/FONT]

          I understand you can get that service if you work on the North Sea rigs and go out without your trousers.

              [FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]surprised at that, seems quite a low figure[/SIZE][/FONT]
              [FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]but then again it is sort of "discouraged" for firms to employ expats etc[/SIZE][/FONT]
              [FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]whereas in dubai, theres about 10,000 alone working just for emirates airline[/SIZE][/FONT]

                            I don't imagine the study includes undocumented workers

                              Updated expat stats

                              Hi guys,

                              Sorry for responding to such an old thread, but I was wondering if anybody is aware of any more recent statistics on expats in Indonesia. I (obviously) tried Google but didn't find anything useful.

                              Thanks,
                              Chris.
