Downstream Robot Technology The government emphasizes that it will focus on downstreaming green energy-oriented industries. Therefore, to increase domestic productivity, technology, aka artificial robots, is neede.”The priority scale policy direction is energy-oriente downstream. What known as downstream is definitely technology-intensive and this is a way to increase productivity.
Downstream industries in the country will definitely no longer use manpower.
This is a choice, if we want our industry to progress, we must use technology. But on the contrary, if you use human power, you will not be able to balance productivity with technological power. “The consequence is definitely not many or not optimal with employees, because they use technology. This is a choice, labor-intensive but slow or with technology but fast and advanced.
“So, this downstream is a combination of a high workforce using technology.

From the country of origin of investment, Singapore ranked first with realization of US$ 13.3 billion and second, China with US$ 8.2 billion. Then, the third position is Hong Kong with a realization of US$ 5.5 billion.

Other priority sectors are plantations, maritime affairs, fisheries and forestry, with investment opportunities up to 2035 with a value of US$ 50.6 billion.
The 21 commodities are include in the 2023-2035 Strategic Investment Downstream Roadmap, namely coal, nickel, tin, copper, bauxite, iron, gold silver, buton asphalt, petroleum, natural gas. There is also oil palm, coconut, rubber, biofuel, pine resin, shrimp, fish, crab, seaweed and salt.
