Monoarfa said that the first theme is “Welcoming the Future,” highlighting the high commitment of the Indonesian government to managing and preserving nature for the advancement of the country and its civilization, say Antara News.
The second theme is “Our Nature, Our Future,” considering that Indonesia has abundant natural resources and is committed to encouraging green development as its economic driver in the future, he added.
“The third theme is “Thriving in Harmony.” It emphasizes that Indonesia’s journey into the future is not only for the advancement (of the country), but also for the harmony (of the nation),” he said.
“The expo will give a vision about the future to visitors by providing a realistic illustration of future society, which is co-created along with various business players and other parties,” he explained.
Meanwhile, three issues will be raised during the world expo, the Indonesian minister said.
Antara News report that the first issue will be carbon neutrality to showcase various technologies that can be used to realize net-zero emissions, reach energy optimization, as well as utilize hydrogen energy.
The second issue is digitization, as the expo will provide futuristic entertainment, which will combine physical and digital entertainment.
Monoarfa said “It (the expo) will also apply digital technology to develop a sophisticated (visitor) reception system to evenly distribute the flow of visitors, while providing the best service for them.”
The last issue will be mobility, as visitors to the expo will get to experience using a flying car, which is expected to become a means of mobility in the future, he added.
