INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta-The automotive industry is one of the sectors that became the benchmark in Indonesia's economic growth. In addition, the automotive industry, especially the four wheels is one of the sexiest industries in Indonesia.

Even said Director General of Metal, Machinery, Transportation and Electronics (Ilmate) Industry Ministry, I Gusti Putu Suryawirawan, four-wheeled automotive industry is the main stage.

"Why only automotive, why only a national car, not a motorcycle, so we have to see where it is going, investment as much as possible," said Putu at the Event of Automotive Industry Indonesia, Jakarta, Tuesday (29/8/2017).

He added, by creating a lot of investment, it allows producers to make components locally. "With that later can sourcing where looking for transmission and others," he said.

When asked how the infrastructure is growing independently, and can be controlled by the nation's children. Putu explained, That we can push, so it can bring up the national brand itself.

"So we can in the future create this component industry, so anyone can sourcing, without depending on the manufacturer, not just the manufacturer alone," added Putu.

Previously, Minister of Industry, Airlangga Hartarto said the Ministry of Industry continues to spur the national automotive industry to continue to develop vehicles that follow technology and consumer tastes.

In addition, to be able to compete in the global market, automotive products must also meet the aspects of safety, comfort, fuel-efficient, environmentally friendly, and have affordable prices.

"Our automotive production is increasing now, which proves that people's purchasing power is still growing, and our economy is still at a five percent level," he said.

Furthermore, Airlangga added, optimism about the automotive industry is also evident from the number of exports of vehicles that continue to rise.

"In 2015 we have a surplus of US $ 466 million, and the end of 2016 increased to US $ 600 million. So we have become a net exporter of the automotive sector," he concluded.
