Especially in Indonesia, according to the Vice President, the automotive industry is also very important in terms of providing employment. Unlike the Japanese who already use the power of robots because of the expensive human labor.

"I say in Japan that if you use a good robot because it would be difficult to compete with the employment situation here.The second is if the robot costs maintenance and return to the industry but if the Indonesian industry millions of people can work, then the potential buyers of cars are also millions who can buy a car If the robot who, there is no salary, "said the Vice President.
