Almost all the world’s major car producers, such as Audi, Honda and Lexus, will take part in the 11-day Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS), Gaikindo chair Yohanes Nangoi told a press conference in Jakarta on Tuesday.

The expo, which will take place from Aug. 10 to Aug. 20 at the Indonesia Convention Exhibition (ICE) in Bumi Serpong Damai (BSD) city, Tangerang, takes “The Rise of Future Mobility” as its theme.
