Meanwhile, on the same occasion, the Minister of Cooperatives and SMEs (Menkop UKM) Teten Masduki stated that the electric vehicle or EV industry in Indonesia is capable of creating a new economy and great opportunities for MSMEs in creating innovative jobs.

“EVs are able to create a new economy so they must be grown to create jobs. Because so far, as many as 97 percent of jobs are provided by the informal micro sector. EVs are a new economy after the palm oil industry which is expected to become a driver of the national economy,” explained the Minister of Cooperatives UKM Teten Masduki at the Inbuyer EV Expo 2023 event.

NCCP Raintai Pasok is said not only to provide business sustainability, but to support the growth of a more inclusive electric vehicle ecosystem.

“From the start I believed that the EV industry would change the structure of the world automotive industry, including Indonesia. Moreover, Indonesia has a large market. In fact, it is not impossible, in the future ice cream traders, meatball and satay traders will no longer use carts, but will use electric motorbikes,” said Teten Masduki.

This optimism is supported by the growth of the EV industry, which in the last three years has seen 58 brands carry out production domestically. Some of them even have a Domestic Content Level (TKDN) reaching 60 percent, higher than the TKDN regulation of 40 percent.

“Because provision is not only for government institutions but individuals. We support a better environment. As well as giving rise to more MSMEs, whose spare parts needs will be produced using a supply chain concept. I am optimistic that we can compete with big brands.” from abroad, both in terms of price and quality,” continued Teten Masduki.

Inbuyer EV Expo 2023 also produces a mandatory K/L including BUMN to gradually replace conventional vehicles with electric motorized vehicles.

“I hope that, if possible, there should be a supervisory team in carrying out this mandatory. “We also continue to coordinate with the Coordinating Ministry for Maritime Affairs and Investment (Kemenko Marves),” he said again.

For the record, Indonesian President Joko Widodo has announced that Indonesia will move towards Net Zero Emission or NZE 2060. At that time it is hoped that all motor vehicle fuel will be available. using renewable or non-fossil or non-BBM (Oil Fuel) energy.
