When opening the automotive exhibition Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show 2018 at ICE BSD City today, Thursday, August 2, 2018, President Joko Widodo welcomed the presence of a rural vehicle called Rural Multiguna Transportation (AMMDes). The multipurpose vehicle of the nation's work is designed to improve the economic productivity of rural communities.
"I welcome the AMMDes, Rural Multiguna Mechanical Transportation, which we will launch today," the President said.
The presence of this rural vehicle will also have a multiplier effect on other industries. At least 70 domestic component industries are involved in the production of rural vehicles.
"This is one type of vehicle but the relationship with the upstream industry is abundant," he said.
