The LTSA will provide efficient service in procedure for the job seekers and immediate protection for them when they work abroad.
"I highly appreciate the setting up of LTSA for workers from Lombok Barat seeking jobs abroad," Lombok Barat District Head H Fauzan Khalid, said in Gerung, the capital city of Lombok Barat on Friday.
Fauzan said he hoped the LTSA, which was launched and started operation on Wednesday this week should be made known to the public for all concerned including government official and community leaders to be aware of its existence.
"Many people in Lombok Barat want to work abroad although unemployment rate is relatively low at 3.12 percent in the district," the regent said.
Fauzan said the initiative of the district administration in setting up LTSA deserves high appreciation , but to be effective it should cooperate with all related agencies.
"Improve coordination not only with the immigration office but also with other agencies like the health service including hospitals in the district," he said.
He said the LTSA is expected to contribute to improving the procedure of employment and protection of migrant workers from Lombok Barat.
"This is the best service provided by the district administration and the Central Government for the people of Lombok Barat," he went on to say.
Meanwhile, Head of the Labor Service of the Lombok Barat district, Rusditah said the government proved its presence in public service especially for people wanting to work abroad.
"LTSA is aimed at bringing to reality effectiveness in the implementation of services, employment and protection, providing efficiency with transparency in taking care of documents, and in expediting improvement in service quality," Rusditah said.
