The performance of the Indonesian manufacturing sector continues to perform well. This is demonstrated by the fact that, the industrial sector is still the largest contributor to GDP in 2022, namely 16.48%. Additionally, the industrial sector makes a significant contribution to national tax revenues, for 28.7%. The same thing is illustrated by the release of the Industrial Confidence Index (IKI), which until March 2023 still showed an expansion value of 51.87. The increase in IKI value from November 2022 to March 2023 was 1.93% with an average increase since the release of the first IKI, November 2022 to March 2023 of 0.48%.
In line with the improvement in the condition of the Indonesian industrial sector following the Covid-19 pandemic, Indonesia is taking the golden opportunity to become the first ASEAN country that become a partner country for the third time at the Hannover Messe 2023 international industry exhibition.
