JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM -- The Industrial Revolution has become a challenge for all groups. The presence of this era facilitates human life in various fields. Starting from the first industrial revolution, we have now entered the era of the Industrial Revolution 4.0.

Indonesia Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) Ignasius Jonan stressed that all sectors must prepare themselves in this era without exception.

"If we look at human civilization, what can change very significantly about the era or era of human slavery is the Industrial Revolution, the first British Government. Britain is the first government to abolish slavery in the world. This is one of the changes in human civilization," he said.

Jonan stressed that at this time the Industrial Revolution 4.0 had come and could not be avoided, no one was able to stop it, because it greatly helped human life from time to time.

The increasing use of robotic technology and machinery will also eliminate administrative work that previously required many people.

"What is really the most dangerous is the administrative field, it will definitely be replaced by machines. Yesterday we saw Tesla, the manufacturer of electric vehicles in the world, launching Robotic Taxi with electric vehicles, without drivers who breathe. , "explained Jonan.

In order to be able to compete further, Jonan said the Government is currently moving dynamically to keep up with the rapid development of the world, not least in the energy and mineral sector.

As the industrial revolution goes to 4.0, the government will focus on developing new renewable energy to electric vehicles as a business component that simplifies work.

New renewable energy and electric cars are part of four activities which, according to Jonan, will become a trend in Indonesia for the next 25 years.

"For Indonesia, the Industrial Revolution in my view there are 4 areas of activity that will become a trend for the next 25 years, after which it may change again. One is renewable energy for electricity and transportation. The second is electric vehicles, the third is online transactions including in the government. The fourth is artificial intelligence including the implementation of 5G in various activities starting from health to fabrication. For Indonesia, at least 4 of these activities will be the future trend, "said Jonan.
