The government has decided to increase the salaries of board of directors of state-owned enterprises (SOEs) this year, based on a regulation issued by the SOEs minister on May 31.
The salary increase is based on Regulation No. PER-01/MBU/05/2019, which was an amendment of Regulation No. PER-04/MBU/2014 on the income of boards of directors, boards of commissioners and members of the SOEs' supervisory council.
Under the new regulation, the salary of deputy president directors of SOEs is 95 percent that of president directors, marking an increase of 5 percent, while human resources directors and other directors have salaries that are 90 and 85 percent of president directors’ salaries respectively.
Meanwhile, the new tantième or bonus for deputy president directors also increased, from 90 percent to 95 percent that of president directors, while human resources directors' bonus increased to 90 percent and other directors to 85 percent.
