The Ministry of Industry (Kemenperin) continues to spur the competitiveness of the domestic footwear industry because it has an export orientation. One strategic step that is actively carried out is to encourage increased competency in human resources (HR) in order to be able to create quality products.


"Together with the textile and clothing industry, the footwear industry also receives development priority and is prepared to enter the industrial era 4.0 to be more competitive in the global arena. This is in line with the implementation of the roadmap Making Indonesia 4.0, "said the Head of the Industrial Human Resources Development Agency (BPSDMI) of the Ministry of Industry, Eko S.A. Cahyanto at the Opening of the 3in1 Training of Upper Footwear Sewing Operators of I-V Force 2020 in Garut, West Java.


Eko revealed, as a labor-intensive and export-oriented sector group, the footwear industry has made a significant contribution to the national economy. This is reflected in the achievement of the shipment value of leather products, leather goods and footwear from Indonesia which was able to penetrate up to USD5.12 billion throughout 2019.


"We remain optimistic, the value of footwear exports will increase this year. Especially with the investment opportunities in the footwear industry in Indonesia which are increasingly wide open after the occurrence of a trade war between China and the United States, "said Eko.


However, Eko said that in order to pursue targets and positive performance from the Indonesian footwear industry, it needs to be supported by the availability of a competent workforce so that it can boost national quality and capacity. Therefore, the Ministry of Industry through BPSDMI routinely holds 3in1 Education and Training (training, certification, and work placement) for foot-sewing operators.


"This force is the first participant in 3in1 Education and Training conducted by BPSDMI in the 2020 budget year," said Eko.


In general, Eko acknowledged that the target of 3in1 Education and Training participants in 2020 will involve as many as 35,000 people. The implementation will be spread across seven Ministry of Industry Training and Education Ministry in collaboration with company-owned training centers or industry associations.


"Meanwhile, specifically for the 3in1 Training in the footwear sector, throughout 2019 a total of 10,751 people have participated in the target held by the Education and Training Center and BDI in Banten, West Java, Central Java, Yogyakarta and East Java," said Eko.


The total number of participants in the 3in1 Training of Upper Footwear Sewing Operators in I-V Force 2020 amounted to 500 people from Garut and surrounding areas. For 20 days, all participants will be provided with the knowledge, skills and work attitudes needed in operating the foot sewing machine by instructors, the majority of whom come from industry and associations.


At the end of the training, all participants will participate in competency certification with a competency test mechanism by the designated Professional Certification Agency with a scheme in accordance with the training material provided. Through this competency certification mechanism, participants will receive recognition of their competencies so that they are expected to be able to increase work productivity and industry competitiveness.


Eko added, the 3in1 Education and Training in Garut was carried out as one of the government's strategic efforts to address the needs of the footwear industry for competent labor supply. "Participants will be placed in PT. Changshin Reksa Jaya, Garut. Looking ahead, of course cooperation with other companies with diverse industrial sectors will always be done, "added Eko.


That is, Eko acknowledged that the Indonesian footwear industry cannot be underestimated on the world stage. Currently, Indonesia ranks sixth as the largest footwear exporting country in the world after China, Vietnam, Italy, Germany and Belgium. Then following Indonesia are France, the Netherlands, Hong Kong, and Spain which fulfill the top 10 footwear exporters in the world.


Furthermore, Indonesia was ranked fourth in the footwear producer with a total of 1.272 million pairs of shoes or 5.3% of world production. In addition, the average price of Indonesian footwear exports still ranks fifth in the world with a value of USD 16.70, which shows Indonesia is able to produce footwear with competitive prices and good quality.
