INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs Darmin Nasution said the fourth industrial revolution or industrial revolution 4.0 where every production sector in the industry is already integrated online, is inevitable.

"The industrial revolution 4.0 we must take care of this, however, we can not avoid it," Darmin said as a keynote speaker at the 2018 Industry Outlook Seminar in Jakarta on Monday (11/12/2017)

According to Darmin, to be ready to face the 4.0 industry revolution, increasing the capacity of human resources (HR) becomes crucial to answer. Darmin said the government has tried to encourage the increasing quality of human resources in the country.

"This is an area we can not help to answer immediately," said Darmin. "The government already has steps in this field although to realize on a large scale it is not a challenge," he said.

Industrial Revolution 4.0 is prioritizing automation in the industrial production process that utilizes robotic power connected to the internet in operation. In Indonesia, industries that are ready to run the industrial revolution 4.0 include petrochemical industry, food and drink, cement, and automotive.

The industrial revolution 4.0 was first spawned in 2011 by Germany and later became the main theme at the World Economic Forum (WEF) 2016 in Davos, Switzerland. A number of countries that have programs to support its industry towards the revolution include Germany, Britain, , China, India, Japan, Korea, and Vietnam.

Darmin said, in the digital world today, the industry must carefully select the superior products that can be produced so that it can compete with products from other countries, although from the technology is not optimal.

"We have to carefully choose what we can excel. What is dominantly traded in the world's 'marketplace', a product that can be generated. It is not high technology, it must be acknowledged, but there are things that scale incredible magnitude. Simply just like rubber products, such as doors and windshields. This is a world scale, do not imagine the scale of Indonesia, "said Darmin.
