Since 1970, continues Safrudin, Indonesia was always promised technology transfer but that never happened, so Indonesia should seize the momentum of low carbon vehicles.

In addition, Indonesia has the availability of nickel, cobalt and rare earth metals which can be used raw material to manufacture batteries for electric vehicles.

Electric vehicle adoption could reduce carbon dioxide transport potential to 59% by 2030, resulting in a net zero carbon footprint zero net emissions potentially implemented in 2045 or by 2050 at the latest.

“I hope this can give the big picture to the Ministry of Environment and Forestry, which is upset because it tends to obey what the oligarchs want,” Safrudin said.

Senior economist Faisal Basri said countries best prepared for low-carbon products would dominate international trade in the future.
