Jakarta – Not only GIIAS, next year the motor vehicle association in Indonesia will hold the Gaikindo Jakarta Auto Week (GJAW) automotive exhibition. In contrast to GIIAS, GJAW’s main focus is more on car sales to boost the automotive industry in Indonesia.
The GJAW automotive exhibition was originally to be held in 2020, as a substitute for GIIAS which was not held due to restrictions on mobility and community activities due to the pandemic.
However, in the end until the end of the year GJAW was also canceled because the Covid-19 pandemic conditions had not shown any signs of declining.
After careful consideration, Gaikindo decided to shift the time for the GJAW automotive exhibition to 2022, to be precise on March 5-13 at the Jakarta Convention Center (JCC).
The Director General of ILMATE, Ministry of Industry (Kemenperin), Taufiek Bawazier in his official statement, Thursday (17/12/2021) said that the implementation of GJAW is an important momentum, because the automotive sector has a significant contribution to the economy.
“Jakarta Auto Week is one of the keepers of momentum, don’t let the transition to 2022 decrease,” said Taufiek.
He added that the Ministry of Industry would continue to monitor and at the same time oversee the course of GJAW from preparation to completion of the exhibition.
So far, it is not known for sure the number and brands of vehicles that will participate in the small-scale automotive exhibition. However, Rizwan Alamsjah, Chairman III of Gaikindo as well as Chairman of the Exhibition Organizer ensured that GJAW would be enlivened by various well-known automotive brands, both from passenger and commercial vehicles, as well as supporting industries.
“In accordance with the focus and purpose of holding it to become a momentum that drives sales, we are preparing various programs that will stimulate transactions at the exhibition,” said Rizwan.
Apply Strict Procedure
Just like GIIAS 2021 which was held last month, GJAW will implement strict health protocols (prokes) during the exhibition, such as wearing masks, washing hands regularly, and maintaining distance.
This policy applies not only to all visitors, but also to exhibitors.
“For nine days it will be held with strict health protocols,” concluded Rizwan.
It is known, the implementation of GJAW is a follow-up to the direction given by the Minister of Industry (Menperin) Agus Gumiwang Kartasasmita to Gaikindo. The purpose of this exhibition is to give a new impetus to the automotive industry.
