The Government of the Republic of Indonesia along with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization -UNIDO held the 1st Regional Conference on Industrial Development -RCID in Bali on 8-9 November 2018. This activity aims to open opportunity and potential in the application of the industrial revolution 4.0 in developing countries in the region of Asia Pacific. The 4th generation industry or Industry 4.0 is currently often highlighted by President Joko Widodo. On several occasions, he always mentioned industry 4.0. In fact, President Joko Widodo also has a roadmap called ‘Making Indonesia 4.0’ which will provide direction for the national industry movement in the future in a bid to make Indonesia a developed country. The Making Indonesia 4.0 roadmap was determined by President Joko Widodo as one of Indonesia's national agendas. The program coordinator is the Ministry of Industry. Actually, what is meant by Industry 4.0? According to the Acting Director General of Resilience and Development of International Industrial Access at the Ministry of Industry, Ngakan Timur Antara stated that industry 4.0 is a trend of transformation of industrial processes driven by rapid technological developments, especially in the process of automation and data exchange. The implementation of the fourth generation industrial revolution involves several key aspects of the transformation of the latest technology. The 4.0 industrial revolution that relies on the internet certainly makes it easier for humans. Today, the fourth industrial revolution has also changed the economy, work, and even society. This revolution instills smart technology and is connected not only within the company, but also everyday human life. Like coins that have two different sides, industry 4.0 brings not only benefits, but also new challenges, especially for the workforce. The automation or utilization of robots in the manufacturing production process allows for a reduction in labor, even though the number is not significant. To deal with changes in industry 4.0, Indonesia is ready to anticipate it. One of them is by improving the competence of Human Resources -HR through a link-and-match program between education and industry. This link-and-match policy is implemented to ensure that the competencies of Indonesian human resources are in line with the needs of industry based on digital technology, as well as the industrial revolution 4.0. Hopefully with the Making Indonesia 4.0 roadmap launched by President Joko Widodo and efforts to improve the competence of human resources through the link-and-match program between education and industry, Indonesia will be ready to face the Industrial Revolution 4.0 and Indonesia can increase productivity and competitiveness.

Australia under Prime Minister Scott Morrisson's government seems more open to its neighbors in the Pacific than the previous regime. One of the reasons for this is that Australia's opposition is more proactive with the Pacific region by disbursing funds worth A$2 billion dollars or about Rp. 20 trillion. Based on advantage or disadvantage, in fact, Australia doesn't gain huge financial benefits by investing the amount of money. Prime Minister Scott Morrison in her speech on Thursday (November 8) said that Australia has its lasting interest in the Pacific region that is safe, strategic, economically stable and politically sovereign. These aspects have become Australia’s perspective since China began to approach this region. China has, of course, interest in this region. With the influx of Chinese influence into the region, support for Taiwan is also declining. Several countries in the Pacific support Taiwan. Taiwan, which does not want to lose its pacific supporters, competes with China after Taiwan lost support from Fiji, which chose to close relations with Taipei and open the door to relations with China. But the influence makes Australia uncomfortable. The Australian opposition which is concerned about strengthening the influence was first planning a proposal to strengthen Australian influence. Soon, Australia disburses funds into the region; apparently Australia and China themselves face investment problems. Minister of Treasury (Treasurer), Josh Frydenberg said that he would block China's efforts to take over the gas pipeline business in Australia, which is worth US$13 billion dollars. There are foreign ownership concerns there. In addition, Australia also prohibits Huawei's involvement in the construction of the 5G network for reasons of national security. At present, the rivalry between Australia and China in seizing regional influence should continue to maintain a peaceful Pacific. We would like to see that whether both countries will win the sympathy of the Pacific countries in an elegant manner. The answer might be at the APEC Summit in Papua New Guinea –PNG next week.
