Kiron Global Strategies announced on Monday that it will launch operations in Asia in Q2 2015 with a new office in Jakarta, Indonesia.

“The workforce development needs – and the corresponding potential for economic growth and development – are tremendous all across Asia, and particularly in Indonesia,” said Jen Braswell, Kiron’s VP of Corporate Strategy and Development. “We are excited to be establishing our first office in the region in Jakarta, and we are committed to bringing our tested workforce development approach to help clients and donors successfully bridge the skills gap and achieve skills and employment goals in Indonesia.”

Ms. Braswell, who currently Co-Chairs the Education and Workforce Development Committee of the American Chamber of Commerce in Jakarta, also notes that a persistent skills mismatch between supply of labor and demand from companies in Indonesia has resulted in ongoing youth unemployment, lagging foreign investment and geographic disparity of job opportunities, which the country needs to address in the near-term.

Kiron will open its Jakarta, Indonesia office in June 2015.
