Partnerships for Productivity (PADU) Activity
Banyan Global is implementing the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Partnerships for Productivity (PADU) activity in Indonesia. PADU is a five-year activity that aims to enhance private sector investment in technical and vocational education and training (TVET) institutions through partnerships with private sector firms and government-run vocational training centers called Balai Latihan Kerja (BLKs). Banyan Global is facilitating and catalyzing public-private partnerships to improve the capacity of BLKs to address skill gaps in the labor market, work with government ministries and the private sector to strengthen labor market information systems and services, and promote the implementation and utilization of tax incentives for the private sector.
Banyan Global and its partners, PT Sekolah Integrasi Digital and Pugajinou International Consulting, are providing technical and advisory services to support the Government of Indonesia’s Ministry of Manpower to develop private-sector partnerships to improve youth’s workforce readiness with a strong focus on integrating women across all initiatives. Ultimately, PADU will increase Indonesia’s overall competitiveness and revive long-term economic growth.
