The April 2020 Hannover Messe fair would help Indonesia accelerate its Industry 4.0 development, which it badly needs if it is to realise its goal to join the league of the ten largest economies by 2030, according to Jochen Köckler, chairman of the board of Deutsche Messe AG, organiser of the annual trade fair. Indonesia is the partner country this time.

As an emerging economic powerhouse with strengths in manufacturing and energy, Indonesia will take advantage of the opportunities presented during the trade fair to showcase itself as a reliable partner and a good place to invest.

“We want Indonesian and German corporations to deepen their business relationships through this event,” Köckler was quoted as saying in an Indonesian newspaper report.

Indonesia has been chosen as its partner country for the second time since 1995.

The 2020 Hannover Messe, to be held from April 20 to 24, will boast 6,500 exhibitors from across the world, on top of 60 forums and conferences. About 6.5 million business contracts are expected to be signed during the event, which, Köckler said, would be an opportune time for Indonesia’s small-scale enterprises and start-ups to find the right business partners.

Indonesian Ambassador to Germany Arif Havas Oegroseno said his government will announce at the end of October 100 eligible companies that will represent the country in Hannover.

A number of road shows to promote the event across the globe have been planned, both by the Deutsche Messe and the Indonesian government.
