The tripartite cooperation institution serves as a forum for the tripartite stakeholders (unions, employers, and government) for communication, consultation and deliberation. It aims to provide consideration, suggestions, and recommendations to the Government and relevant parties in formulating manpower policy and problem solving.
A tripartite cooperation institution may be established at the regional, national, provincial and district (regency/city) levels, as well as at the sectoral level. Members are appointed for a three year term.
Tripartite cooperation institutions at the national level are comprised of 15 governmental officials, 15 employer representatives, and 15 union representatives. The provincial level tripartite institution includes 9 representatives from each of the tripartite parties, and the county level includes 7 representatives each.
