"For example, a TKI who gives false data will be subject to sanctions, as well as all parties involved, for example, should be 20 years old, at the age of only 17 years, then all related parties will be punished, including the TKI also," explained Maruli.

Meanwhile, Regent of East Lombok Moch. Ali Bin Dachlan explains the overseas workforce to be upgraded, but must be arranged for the sake of mutual benefit, which will ultimately benefit all parties.
