The universal social security reform in Indonesia was started only a few years back. Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Indonesia Office has been conducting programs to support the national social security reform. A visit by a delegation from the German Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Policy (BMAS) to Jakarta following the Second G20 Employment Working Group Meeting in Yogyakarta in May 2022 provided an opportunity to discuss the development of social security in Germany and Indonesia with representatives from the Indonesian Coordinating Ministry for Human Development and Culture (KEMENKO PMK).
The participants explored the recent development, reforms, and challenges of social security systems in both countries.
