In the era of the industrial revolution 4.0, there will be more challenges. Even so, Indonesia's economy is able to grow above 5 percent because it continues to carry out structural reforms, take advantage of demographic bonuses and technological advancements, as well as increase economic competitiveness.
In addition, Indonesia is also expected to become a high-income country by 2036 and enter the top five with regard to the largest GDP in 2045. According to Emil, this estimate can be realized if Indonesia's young generation, especially West Java, is competitive.
"If Indonesia and West Java want to be great, at least they must fulfill 3 main requirements, namely economic growth is maintained at a minimum rate of 5 percent, conducive and millennial democracy or competitive generation z," Emil said.
Emil also hopes that the campus can become a "Center of Excellent and Innovation", so that it can produce a myriad of new achievements and innovations for the development of West Java in the next five years.
