Jakarta (ANTARA) - Indonesia's food and beverage industry is ready to showcase Industry 4.0 technology at the international trade fair Hannover Messe 2023 through PT Lautan Natural Krimerindo (LNK), according to an official.

"We hope that PT LNK will be able to display some Industry 4.0 technologies that have been applied in the production lines," said Putu Juli Ardika, Director General Agro Industry at the Ministry of Industry, in a statement released on Sunday.

He made these remarks during a media gathering themed "LNK Transformation in Support of 'Making Indonesia 4.0'" in Surabaya, East Java.

LNK is also expected to provide visitors with information that products from Indonesia's food and beverage industry are safe, competitive, and produced with high technology, he said.

Indonesia participates as an official country partner in the Hannover Messe 2023 which will be held on April 17-21, 2023.

Indonesia is the first ASEAN country to become a partner three times at the exhibition.

According to Ardika, the Hannover Messe 2023 exhibition is a big opportunity to help realize Indonesia's vision to become one of the top 10 countries with the largest economies by 2030.

He said that Indonesia's participation is not only important for the country's branding, but also for the improvement of manufacturing capabilities and the development of digital infrastructure.
