Full text: Sharing and cooperation in geo-information technology

members, in due time, the database of this program will include 
some 35,000 Indonesian experts from almost all areas of 
expertise - accessible both nationally and internationally. It is 
therefore believed that its presence will be a major contribution 
to stipulate an appropriate management strategy for the 
development of national human resources. Thus, the database 
will function as perhaps one of the most comprehensive 
references for the government (e.g. BAPPENAS) to blueprint 
national human resources development in the future. 
Even before the monetary crisis of 1997, the value of 
transactions recorded at national level has always resulted in 
deficit. The main reason as to why this is so is perhaps due to 
the incapability of Indonesia to produce skilled human 
resources of high standards, which results in the increasing 
demand to substitute this void with high qualified professionals 
of foreign origin. Hence, even though the goods sector shows a 
sufficient surplus, the services sector ironically cancels this out 
with its overly large deficit. If this situation is to remain, then, 
the development of this country will never reach its break-even 
INKINDO’s national human resources inventory will not only 
serve as a reference of bona fide professionals in Indonesia, but 
will also intensify' the framework for South and South 
cooperation - leading to a more liberal workforce market.
