In the context of Human Resources, it has been realized that the market system has undergone many changes. This is caused by a shift of global economic orientation. With the strengthening of globalization, the job market is pushed toward to be more flexible form (flexible labor market). This condition believed will have a further stimulate economic growth, greater expansion of equality of employment opportunities, and income society.
It means that conditions require the role of the state/nation in regulating the work of the labor market is reduced. This condition requires the initiative actors - which is an outside state’s actors to conduct a common "intervention" to strengthen these positive assumptions.
In the side of capital, funding issues arise in the discourse of economic development. A common emerged-issue is the government's ability to fund infrastructure is still very low. The increasing of stock of physical capital and output is supposed to be more concerned. Policy advocacy on the side of the government, as well as important with related-initiatives on investment from the private sector. IRI encourages any policies that integrate the private sector into competitive components, and privatize them in competitive markets while maintaining a regulatory control.
IRI also apprehend the development of science and technology (IPTEK) should be paralleled with the increase of human skills and knowledge, so that development is encouraged to expand the scope of its application so as to provide a very wide impact on other industries and tools.
Most of industrialized countries give a priority to the oriented-mastery of science and technology by conducting research and development activities in industry and technology especially in manufacturing technology, product technology and process technology. The efforts of developing countries are still oriented towards increasing competitiveness in order to open an access to the international market. It shall be directed to the development of life cycle of a product (product life cycle) which feels increasingly short, especially in the field of electronics and informatics industry.
The next important step is how to encourage a technology capability, i.e how to use technology effectively. Then technology effort is an ability to choose, mix, and adjust imported with local condition or even create a new technology.
The last but not least, in the extractive sector (oil, gas and minerals) has become an important consideration both of challenge and opportunity. It realized a natural resources have often provoked the presence of social problems. Starting from a violent conflicts, an environmental degradation, an inequality of gender and other inequalities cross-border phenomena. But for those who are able to encourage democracy (local) there are many cases where the management of natural resources, the role of society has grown sustainably and equally for social development.
