The Ministry of Industry continues to collaborate with number of parties for readiness to enter the industrial era 4.0, including cooperating with the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO). This strategic step is expected to accelerate the improvement of the competitiveness of the manufacturing sector in Indonesia.


"We have a cooperation program in an effort to increase global competitiveness in the industrial sector. Some of the activities carried out include policy discussions, joint research, investment and business forums, and business matching events, "said the Director General of Defense, Regional and International Industry Access (KPAII) of the Ministry of Industry, Doddy Rahadi in Jakarta.


Doddy revealed, the Ministry of Industry and JETRO Jakarta had held seminars and business matching about the application of the internet of things (IoT) as the basis for industrial technology 4.0 in Jakarta. "This activity is the third meeting held jointly," he said.


Doddy explained, on the agenda, one of the themes discussed was regarding the implementation of industry 4.0 through the use of IoT in the five priority sectors according to the Making Indonesia 4.0 road map. The five sectors are the food and beverage industry, the textile and clothing industry, the automotive industry, the electronics industry, and the chemical industry.


"Our first business matching was held in February 2018, the focus of the discussion was related to the development of the food and beverage industry, the metal industry, the fertilizer industry, and the industrial estate," he said. Then, in November 2019, a similar activity was held by involving banking players to discuss the development of the automotive industry and its components.


The KPAII Director General believes the joint forum can bring business opportunities for Japan and Indonesia while expanding networking and potentially increasing trade and investment for both countries. "We hope to support and contribute to the next events under the framework of this collaboration to encourage national industry participation in the global value chain," he said.


Lately, the Ministry of Industry has been proactively encouraging the development of IoT in order to strengthen the structure of digital technology in Indonesia in efforts to implement the 4.0 industrial revolution. Moreover, Indonesia will transform into an IoT business ecosystem valued at Rp444 trillion by 2022.


Indonesia's opportunity to become an IoT ecosystem is considered to be very large. This potential can be seen from the number of internet users in the country of more than 140 million people. Therefore, industry transformation 4.0 is one of the keys to the success of Indonesia's development in the future.


In fact, the implementation of Industry 4.0 is also considered to encourage increased investment by companies, especially those related to the use of the latest technology such as IoT. This step is believed to be able to support an increase in the productivity and competitiveness of the manufacturing sector and can create an innovation ecosystem.


Therefore, Indonesia is expected to not only be a market of the digital economy, but also to take advantage of the development of the digital economy so that the industry is increasingly growing and competitive. The five main technologies that support the development of industrial system 4.0, such as IoT, artificial intelligence (AI), human-machine interface, robotics and sensor technology, and 3D printing technology.


Doddy added, several strategic steps focused by the Ministry of Industry in readiness to enter the industrial era 4.0, including launching the Making Indonesia 4.0 initiative, strengthening industrial human resources, establishing a Digital Capability Center (center of innovation and industrial development 4.0), and launching INDI 4.0 to measure the level industry readiness for industry 4.0.


"The agenda that is also our concern right now is preparation for the implementation of the Hannover Messe 2020, because Indonesia is the official partner of the country," he added. This good momentum is to show the capability of the Indonesian manufacturing sector, especially in the transformation effort towards the Industrial 4.0 era. The theme of the national pavilion at HM 2020 is "The Journey of Making Indonesia 4.0".
