Taking the theme “Transformation Towards a Sustainable and Intelligent Urban Mobility”, ITS Asia Pacific Forum 2024 will take center stage in Jakarta on 28-30 May 2024 at Jakarta Convention Center.
As a country with a rapidly growing population and increasing urbanization, it is crucial for Indonesia to expedite the implementation of ITS to overcome the challenges posed by transportation and to ensure a safer, more efficient, and sustainable future.
The adoption of Intelligent Transportation Systems in Indonesia is not only important but also critical to the success and development of our country. We can address the difficulties of traffic congestion, road safety, and inefficient transportation management by accelerating the implementation of ITS.
To begin with, the implementation of ITS allows us to address the common problem of traffic congestion. We may obtain insights into traffic patterns, optimize signal timings, and dynamically change traffic flow by using intelligent traffic management systems, real-time data collection, and predictive analytics. This has the potential to drastically reduce congestion, shorten travel times, and improve the overall efficiency of our transportation network.
Furthermore, ITS has the potential to significantly improve traffic safety. We can improve situational awareness, prevent accidents, and manage risks by utilizing technology such as vehicle-to-vehicle communication, advanced driver support systems, and automatic incident detection. By accelerating the introduction of ITS, we can create a safer transportation environment, saving lives, decreasing injuries, and ensuring the well-being of our citizens. I would like to express my support for the ITS APF 2024, as exhibitions and forums play an important role in raising awareness and disseminating information, as well as providing a unique opportunity for industry experts, researchers, policymakers, and the general public to come together, exchange ideas, and showcase the most recent advancements in ITS.
We can accomplish the following benefits by conducting more ITS-related shows. Let us work together to embrace these breakthrough technologies, build a better transportation network, and shape a brighter future for Indonesia-one marked by efficient mobility, enhanced safety, and sustainable growth.

Spanning 496 years of rich history, Jakarta has transformed from a colonial outpost into one of Asia's largest metropolises. From its early days, Jakarta has experienced tremendous growth and development. Today, it stands as a testament to the nation's progress, attracting global attention with its thriving economy and vibrant urban landscape. Amidst its transformation into an economic activity hub, Jakarta still confronts various challenges, including congestion that impedes mobility and economic efficiency. Therefore, the Jakarta Capital City Government is committed to pursuing an intelligent transportation system.
The progress of Jakarta's transportation system development can be witnessed through the successful integration of public transit. The advent of MRT, LRT, commuter lines, and electric buses has revolutionized transportation within the city. Commuters now have seamless access to different modes of public transit, making travel more efficient and convenient. Furthermore, sustainability takes centre stage, with subsidized electric vehicles (EVs)for personal use and the introduction of EV buses. These sustainable initiatives contribute to reducing carbon emissions and promoting a greener and more environmentally friendly transportation system.
I welcomed all the participants of The Intelligent Transport System (ITS) Asia Pacific Forum 2024 to our city. This forum supports Jakarta's vision of becoming a smart transportation city. Hopefully, the insights generated during this forum will also positively influence the development of transportation systems across Indonesia, particularly in realizing a smart and efficient transportation network.
Furthermore, I hope this forum will foster the synergy of all societal elements in developing transportation technology. By fostering innovationand collaboration, let's shape the tuture of transportation together. I warmly welcome you to Jakarta for the ITS APF 2024.
Jakarta's Success for Indonesia.

In the bustling city of Jakarta lived a young professional. He was a diligent worker, but the fast-paced nature of his job often left him feeling overwhelmed and stressed. Juggling projects and 3-4 meetings a day seemed like an impossible feat. He was so excited when MRT was opened in the heart of Jakarta, he can get from one point to another point in just minutes and the impact on his productivity was transformative.
His story highlights the incredible impact that the implementation of ITS can have on individuals, reminding us of the immense potential of technology to simplify and enhance our daily lives. His and many others' story about how ITS changed their lives is a reason ITS Indonesia exists, and I am so excited because Indonesia is selected as the host for APF 2024. It is truly a testament to the remarkable progress we have made in the field of transportation. Our unwavering commitment to building a robust and innovative transportation system has gained recognition worldwide. We are now seen as a nation at the forefront of transportation development, embracing progress and paving the way for a brighter future.
ITS Indonesia has identified five key areas of focus: smart mobility, integrated transport systems, data-driven decision making, sustainable transportation, and inclusive transport solutions. Through collaborative efforts and discussions during ITS APF 2024, we believe these focus areas can be enhanced and brought to fruition. Together, we can explore innovative approaches and establish partnerships that drive the optimization of intelligent transportation systems.
As we embark on this collective journey, let us embrace the spirit of collaboration and innovation. ITS APF 2024 provides an invaluable platform for exchanging ideas, sharing experiences, and exploring opportunities for partnership. By working hand in hand, we can accelerate the implementation of cutting-edge technologies and practices, ultimately shaping the future of transportation in our countries and beyond.
Once again, I extend my heartfelt welcome to each and every one of you. May this ITS APF 2024 be a fruitful and inspiring experience for all, as we collectively strive towards smart and sustainable transport systems that will enhance the lives of our citizens and contribute to a more prosperous future.
It is my great honor and privilege to welcome you to the 2024 ITS Asia-Pacific Forum (APF) hosted by ITS Indonesia. Bringing the theme “Transformation Towards A Sustainable and Intelligent Urban Mobility”, we believe this momentous event will bring together visionaries, experts, and innovators from across the globe to collectively find solution and shape the future of transportation.
As the chairman of ITS APF 2024, I am truly honored to welcome you all to this remarkable gathering. Let us seize this opportunity to exchange knowledge, share experiences, and explore collaborative partnerships. Together, we can pave the way for a future of smart and sustainable transportation, not just for Jakarta or Indonesia, but for the entire Asia-Pacific region and beyond. Thank you for being a part of this extraordinary journey. Let us make ITS APF 2024 an event that inspires transformative change and propels us towards a brighter future.
