INDONESIA-VEHICLE TO EMPOWER FARMERS
The Jakarta Post-Aug 7
Although a little late, the production of a much-awaited rural vehicle is likely to be a game changer in the country’s efforts to develop its agriculture industry, as well as in improving the well-being of farmers and realizing food security. President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo inaugurated the light pickup truck, called the AMMdes, during the opening of the 2018 Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS) in Serpong, Tangerang, last week. The vehicle is part of an Industry Ministry-sponsored program to provide more affordable means of transportation to rural people.
