TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta: The Customs & Excise Regional Bureau IV of Tanjung Priok Harbor will reduce the number of its employees by 400.
They will be moved to other bonded zone areas under the aegis of the Customs Directorate General.
This is related to the Customs & Excise plan to implement a one-stop service system in Tanjung Priok.
“This will be effective fromJuly,” said Anwar Suprijadi, the Director General of Customs & Excise at the Finance Department, at the Koja Container Terminal, North Jakarta, today (26/3).
According to him, under the new system, the Customs Regional Bureau IV will change into a business service bureau with one-stop system.
“Now the service is per wharf, later it will be per client,” said Anwar.
In order to implement the new system, the Customs & Excise authorities will put into effect an obedience division which has never existed before.
Its function is to monitor the implementation of an anti-corruption code of ethics.
“We will talk to the Corruption Eradication Commission tomorrow to help with the training,” said Anwar.
Heru Santoso, Head of Tanjung Priok Customs Regional Bureau IV, said that now Tanjung Priok Customs has 1,300 employees.
Under the new system, only 900 employees will be needed.
