[Invest in Human Resource, Invest in Economy]


  • Ngasuko, Tri Achya


With the realization of massive infrastructure development in the last five years, including the disbursement of Village Funds of Rp 187 trillion since four years ago, it is time for the Government to re-navigate its development goals by elaborating development. Now, the Government focuses on developing Indonesia from "inside", namely in terms of Human Resources (HR). This brief review aims to see how the focus on the development of Indonesian HR in the future. This paper shows that one of the prerequisites for becoming a developed country is quality human resources. For Indonesia, the Human Development Index (HDI) of Indonesia in 2018 will reach 71.39. This figure increased by 0.58 points or grew 0.82 percent compared to 2017. This study also produced information that infrastructure development that has been carried out on a large scale in the last five years is an excellent solution to overcome the problem of the distribution of quality human resources in Indonesia. Infrastructure development will enhance good connections between regions in Indonesia to encourage equality between regions. Thus, the quality of existing human resources will not accumulate in one particular area. This study adds that the closest challenge is preparing the community as fully as possible for the presence of the industrial era 4.0. Responding to this natural phenomenon, Indonesians have to make themselves successfully passing this era.
