For the record, the Government will continue promoting ‘Making Indonesia 4.0’ campaign which is in line with the lead theme of Hannover Messe 2021, namely Industrial Transformation.
In this year’s event, Indonesia adopted a new tagline: ‘Connect to Accelerate’, which aims to promote synergy and to stimulate the growth of industry 4.0 in Indonesia. The tagline also serves as a branding strategy which invites and encourages domestic and international stakeholders (the Government, industry, and investors) to create a synergy and collaboration in speeding up and enhancing industrial development in Indonesia through the utilization of 4.0 technology.
This event will also showcase Indonesia’s prowess in the transformation of industry 4.0 and contribute to the efforts to recover the national economy as the impact of COVID-19 pandemic. (FID/UN) (RAS/MUR)
