The “Automotive x Lifestyle” exhibition aims to achieve transactions worth IDR 2.3 trillion and attract 53,000 visitors. “This year’s GJAW presents 26 innovations, including passenger, premium, commercial, and new vehicle launches,” Yohannes said.

He expressed his gratitude to the government, especially the Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs and the Ministry of Industry, for supporting the exhibition. 

He hopes that the GJAW will boost the innovation of domestic automotive products to increase competitiveness. 

“We encourage members to develop new Indonesian vehicle models and launch them,” Yohanes Nangoi said.
