Dean of the Faculty of Administrative Science, Universitas Indonesia, Prof. Dr. Eko Prasojo who is also the Chair of the Independent National Bureaucratic Reform Team (TIRBN) led the official visit of the TIRBN delegation and the Ministry of State Apparatus Empowerment and Bureaucratic Reform (Kemenpan-RB) to Tokyo, Japan. The TIRBN delegation who attended the visit was a Political Expert Prof. Dr. Siti Zuhro, Regional Autonomist Expert Prof. Djoehermansyah Djohan, TIRBN Senior Expert Dr. Rudiarto Sumarwono. The trip aims to study bureaucratic reform in several public institutions in Japan, including the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), the National Personnel Authority (NPA), the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, the Cabinet Bureau of Personnel Affairs.

The delegation had the opportunity to study directly the seven main foundations that underpin the progress of the bureaucratic wheels in Japan. First, the administrative system in Japan that deals with public sector policy. Second, the relationship between the central and regional governments. Third, strategic issues in the management of human resources include optimizing the role of women in bureaucratic positions. Fourth, a strategy to increase efficiency in work. Fifth, strategic issues regarding performance and payroll measurement in Japan. Sixth, the study of the management of the leadership of echelon levels 1 and 2. Seventh, maintaining the stability and neutrality of the bureaucracy from political intervention.

TIRBN is a national level institution that plays a role in providing strategic input and recommendations related to the national bureaucratic reform program. The results of this visit will be submitted to the Vice President as Chair of the National Bureaucracy Reformation and PAN-RB Minister as Chair of the National Bureaucracy Reform Team. In addition, Prof. Eko, who is also a former WamenPAN-RB, also said that this visit will be followed up with various collaborations between the Government of Indonesia and Japan to support the national bureaucracy reform policy.
