The Ministry of Industry (Kemenperin) continues to encourage industrial estates to support the growth of the industrial sector and contribute to increased investment. To accelerate development while increasing the productivity of industrial estates, the Ministry of Industry is taking steps such as accelerating the implementation of the Smart Eco Industrial Park or what is known as the fourth generation industrial area.
The implementation of the Smart Eco Industrial Park is marked by the emergence of sustainable development principles such as reducing carbon emissions, circular economy and green industry which bridge the energy transition towards renewable energy and are in line with the issues of concern in this year's G20 Presidency.
The Ministry of Industry has collaborated with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) in implementing the Global Eco Industrial Park Program (GEIPP) which has been officially rolling since July 2020.
Through this program, industrial estates will receive interventions in the form of capacity building and workshops on the application of the International Framework EIP to increase resource productivity, economic, environmental, social and business performance for industrial estates. Several industrial estates that have been designated as pilot projects will be able to take part in this program.
