Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – The future presidential candidate (bacapres) Prabowo Subianto is pushing for Indonesia to be able to produce energy independently. According to him, the country has never lacked resources such as water and palm oil. He also mentioned the products that have been made in Indonesia and are ready to promote them.
“Our challenge is to be self-sufficient. We produce all our own food,” Prabowo said while attending the Gelora Party declaration in Jakarta, Saturday (2/9/2023).
He said Indonesia has many national food storages. Moreover, you don’t have to worry about energy because Indonesia, a producer of palm oil, sugar cane and palm sugar, as well as many other energies, is endless.
“This is a swamp where the source of water will not run out. We can build granaries in the swamps. There is no need to import energy,” said Prabowo.
On that occasion, Prabowo also highlighted the issue of national unity which can be achieved through cooperation at all levels of society. Even Prabowo is willing to become a brand ambassador or ambassador for local products such as watches, shoes, and perfume made by the nation’s children.
“I got a report, there are already watches made in Indonesia. I want to see the factory to be sure of this really made in Indonesia, not from outside,” said Prabowo
“I was also told that there are perfumes and shoes made in Indonesia too. I wear shoes made in Indonesia, they are very good and not inferior. I can become a brand ambassador if that’s the case.” continued Prabowo.
Prabowo is determined that Indonesia must indeed be able to produce its own goods, such as cars and motorbikes. He admitted that he had been ordered by Jokowi to manufacture local jeeps and electric motorbikes.
“The president ordered me and Bandung to have Pindad Jeeps made in Indonesia. God willing, by the end of this year there will be mass production. We have also made electric motorbikes made in Indonesia. We can produce 3,000 motorbikes a month made by Indonesian children at PT LEN.” said Prabowo
