This paper aims to analyze the opportunities and challenges of the Indonesia-China alliance in the development of space technology. We know that Indonesia’s foreign policy is free and active politics. But, the condition of the global strategic environment developing so greatly with the 4.0 industrial revolution and the increasing tension between America and China has contributed to the contestation of the development of space technology. The development of the strategic environment will make Indonesia establish an alliance with one of the countries, in this case China as a country that has begun to strengthen its dominance over America to be able to realize its interests in the development of space technology for national independence. This paper uses a descriptive qualitative methodology, using library data sources through various books and journals related. Based on the analysis by the author, basically there are opportunities and challenges that must be faced by Indonesia in forming an alliance with China in the development of space technology. Indonesia’s opportunities are supported by relations between the two countries which have long been implemented. Meanwhile, from the challenging side, it is still the dominance of America in relation to this space technology, so that America tends to be able to intervene. While this is related to the Chinese Indonesian alliance, what is important to do is to strengthen Indonesia’s diplomacy towards China to be able to get a transfer of technology & transfer of knowledge that will support the development of national space technology.
