INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Director General of Chemical, Textile and Multifarious Industries (IKTA) of the Ministry of Industry, Achmad Sigit Dwiwahjono said in welcoming the industrial revolution 4.0, the national petrochemical industry will be prepared slowly. The reason, Indonesia needs a large-capacity petrochemical industry.

"The petrochemical industry is a technology-intensive, capital-intensive industry, so because it is capital-intensive, the investment in petrochemical industry is quite large, and from 1995 we did not have a large-capacity petrochemical industry, so in almost 15 years we have no new investment in the field petrochemical industry, "Sigit said on the title of Industrial Summit 2018, at Jakrta Convention Center, Thursday (4/4/2018).

Thus, Sigit said, especially for petrochemical upstream readiness done gradually. "Because if we force the industry 4.0 upstream sector whose investment is 20 years ago, this little barrier obstacles that will be detrimental to the industrial sector," continued Sigit.

He said it could be done in sectors that have little risk. However, if for new investments it will encourage to do optimization and efficiency through the prepared Infrastructure.

"So if we can do that to the sector sector that the level of risk is small, but if for the downstream sector of the chemical industry and that new investment we are encouraged to do the optimization and efficiency through the use of Infrastructure we have done especially in industrial sector 4.0, Sigit said.
