Indonesia's development growth inseverable from a role of the U.K Government. According to Indonesia minister of foreign affair, the U.K Department for International Development (DFID) has contributed to invest almost £30,000,000. Indonesia is focusing on infrastructure development, which In 2016 construction sectors had contributed as drivers to economic growth. Indonesia government allocated 183,2-pound sterling which breaks down in 26,67 percent construction of the reservoir, 20,89 percent construction of the highway, and 10,67 percent construction of special economic sectors. As a common knowledge that in Indonesia, there are many engineers who a specialist on design or structural but there is only a few specialist have managerial skill. This condition gives impact which the fund from the government does not distribute precisely. Hence, being an Engineer in the country which has a significantly develop makes me cannot be restrained to devote for the empowerment nation.
My immediate plan after returning Indonesia is to continue work on the construction sector and become a Section Head of division in the construction area. The knowledge and practice gained from the master course will allow me to generate the required skills to establish a higher standard in quality and cost aspects. Due to inadequate human resources (a specialist) in Indonesian's construction industry. It will reaffirm my position to be on the top management in a short period time.
On the part of that, I will be held accountable for plan a design and construct to generate the best product of construction. Due to the fact, the construction in Indonesia has frequently overdue the schedule, the construction quality in Indonesia below the U.K standardization, and uneven the sustainable development in each area. I strongly believe that I will be the right person to take up assignments and brings the better future in Indonesia. Firstly, I will make a master schedule that connected to the construction in general, each element in the construction should be integrated with another element. For example, In the beginning of the project, I plan a schedule where the infrastructure work should be finished before the construction begins, delivery of the materials should have a clear track. As the result, the main schedule will be on time. Secondly, I will devise a proposal regarding a development in a remote area. I will cooperate with the company and also the government to raise a social welfare in the remote area. With contributed from the U.K department which funding my civil engineering and management master program and also experiences in the field position through several large-scale constructions, I absolutely have a huge chance to solve all the problem above.

I will make sure that the development in Indonesia right on target, so the funding from the U.K department will be allocated optimally. With brightly career path, I honoured to be your candidate.
