Indonesia plans more flexible working hours for women

The Manpower Ministry is planning to issue a regulation that will make it possible for women to work more flexible hours and thus increase their participation in the labour market.

Flexible working hours will also help businesses keep up with rapid industrial changes.

Speaking at a national coordinating meeting on manpower recently, Manpower Minister Hanif Dhakiri said the rigid regulations stipulated in Law No. 13/2013 had led to the relatively low participation of women in the labour market.
