Industry Minister Agus Gumiwang Kartasasmita believes 2021 Hannover Messe in Germany will open the global industry’s perspective toward Indonesia’s enormous potential to encourage partnerships ahead of Industry 4.0 and offer opportunities for benchmarking latest technology.
“The opportunity presented to Indonesia, as the official partner country at the 2021 Hannover Messe, must be optimally utilized to ink business agreements, forge industrial cooperation, draw investment, and drive the implementation of Industry 4.0 in Indonesia as a part of the national economic recovery,” Kartasasmita noted during an online pre-conference of the metal, machinery, transportation equipment and electronics (ILMATE) industries at the 2021 Hannover Messe, a prominent international exhibition, here on Thursday.
The minister explained that the pre-conference was organized to offer opportunities to local industries in existing prioritized sectors that are currently transforming to Industry 4.0 to demonstrate their success journey in implementing Industry 4.0.
Pre-conferences were conducted in two sessions on Thursday (April 8). The first session on Thursday morning on the topic “Technological Advances for Industrial Transformation 4.0” demonstrated digital transformation in the transportation equipment, health equipment, electronic, and metal industries.
“Some experiences and achievements in the path to Industry 4.0 are expected to trigger industrial players in Indonesia to also implement Industry 4.0,” Kartasasmita affirmed.
Meanwhile, the second session on the topic “Smart Industrial Park and EU Green Dealyang” highlighted the industrial area and the government’s policy pertaining to the green industry.
The Smart Industrial Park refers to the industrial area development concept through digital transformation that boosts the realization of the green industrial area. It can be achieved by utilizing digital technology and innovation in line with the sustainable development principle, including carbon emission reduction and the circular economy.
“In 2021, Indonesia has 128 industrial areas operating. Through this pre-conference, the industrial areas in Indonesia are expected to implement the Smart Industrial Park concept, so that an efficient, environment-friendly, and sustainable industry can be achieved,” he pointed out.
The world is recently facing the era of accelerated digitalization, Kartasasmita pointed out.
In keeping with the momentum, the 2021 Hannover Messe highlighted the topic of “Industrial Transformation” to demonstrate breakthroughs in advanced technology to address the challenges and to offer industry solutions.
Furthermore, by covering the topic of “Making Indonesia 4.0” at the 2021 Hannover Messe, Indonesia is keen to share with the world the roadmap of Industry 4.0 implementation along with its achievements.
Indonesia aspires to be one of the 10 countries with the biggest economy in the world by 2023 through seven prioritized sectors: food and beverage, automotive, electronics, chemical, textiles and clothing, pharmacy, and health equipment.
