On that virtual exhibition, Indonesia as an official partner country is also the only ASEAN county that has ever received this honor.
This opportunity is expected to support Indonesia’s branding as one of the world’s new economic powers and global manufacturing countries.

Therefore, under the theme “Making Indonesia 4.0” and the slogan “Connect to Accelerate” that bring to this event, all parties in Indonesia are expected to synergize to support the growth of industry in Indonesia, as well as introduce the country’s capabilities in manufacturing technology and digital infrastructure sector to the world.

“Amid the pandemic, transformation of technology, especially digital technology, plays an ever more important role. The transformation of technology that creates momentum does not only bring the world to end a pandemic, but also makes a great leap forward,” President Jokowi said.

Indonesia’s participation as an official partner country of Hannover Messe 2021 is supported by 156 exhibitors consisting of ministries and agencies, state-owned enterprises, universities, and national private companies.

Among the 156 exhibitors, 93 were new applicants and 63 exhibitors were candidates for Hannover Messe 2020 which was postponed due to COVID-19 pandemic.

On the series of Hannover Messe 2021, the Government has prepared various joint collaborations in industrial sector, both within Government to Government (G2G) and Business to Business (B2B) framework.

Hannover Messe 2021 will focus on the digitalization of product presentations, software-based business matchmaking, various conference programs; thus, this event directly becomes a breakthrough and innovation in the exhibition of industrial solution technology. (FID/UN)
