INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta, Indonesia's automotive sales throughout 2017 reached 1.80 million units. The figure is up 1.6 percent compared to 2016 which only reached 1,063,000 units.

"Despite the small 1.6 percent, we would be grateful to grow in the years ahead with so many challenges," said Chairman of the Association of Indonesian Automotive Industries (GAIKINDO), Yohanes Nangoi in Jakarta, Tuesday (6/1/2018).

However, Nangoi continued, from the growth there is one encouraging indication that the growth of commercial vehicles. Based on GAIKINDO data, commercial vehicle sales figures grew by 45 percent in 2017.

"Throughout 2017, commercial vehicle sales reached 80 thousand units, while in 2016 it only reached 59 thousand units, indicating that the Indonesian economy is improving," he explained.
