The world will see Indonesia's capability in five priority sectors of Making Indonesia 4.0, notably the textile, food and beverage, automotive, electronic and chemical sectors.
Jakarta (ANTARA) - Industry Minister, Airlangga Hartarto, said that the Hannover Messe 2020, the world's leading industrial technology and investment expo, is an opportunity for Indonesia to showcase its capability in manufacturing.

"Specifically, Indonesia as an official partner country will take center stage at the Hannover Messe," Hartarto said here on Thursday.
The world will see Indonesia's capability in five priority sectors of Making Indonesia 4.0, notably in the textile, food and beverage, automotive, electronic and chemical sectors.

This will prove that Indonesia has shifted from a commodity-based country to a manufacturing-based one, he added.

This is in accordance with the road map of the government of President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) during his second presidential term, which encourages the industrial and manufacturing sectors.

He said President Jokowi is scheduled to be present at the opening of the Hannover Messe to be organized in Germany on April 22 and 24, 2020.

Hannover Messe will see the participation of 6,500 industries from 73 countries.

The annual expo is usually visited by some 225 thousand people from 91 countries and sees some 5.6 million business deals being inked.

As an official partner country, Indonesia will occupy a central pavilion measuring 1,300 m2 and several thematic satellite pavilions.

Indonesia also hopes to strengthen its national brand to attract more foreign investors and establish cooperation in the industrial sector.

The Hannover Messe 2019, with Sweden as the official partner country, recorded 211 thousand visitors from 98 countries, some 94 percent of whom were businessmen, while 66 of them were decision-makers in their companies.

After 1995, Indonesia has yet again been chosen as the official partner country of the Hannover Messe.

Indonesia will have a huge opportunity to seize the relocation of industries, Indonesian Ambassador to Germany, Arif Havas Oegroseno, informed the Indonesian and German media in Berlin on September 27, 2019.
