Indonesian Textile Association (API), West Java urging the government to take steps to inhibit the flood of textile products and textile products (TPT) in the country to safeguard rules. Secretary API Jabar Kevin Hartanto said the various policies that have been implemented government is not optimal to stem the rush of imported textile products.

 

He asked the government to set the rules safeguard instrument as soon as possible.

 

"It's always the government makes policies to halt the import, but in fact the domestic market increasingly controlled by foreign products," he said.

 

Imported products often dominate Indonesian textile market come from China. Even the imported product is old stock.

 

Kevin describes domestic products could dominate  domestic market for 15 years that is able to meet the needs of approximately 70%, while today only 40%. "

 

According to him, this decline was significantly since 2010, when it was still controlled 50% and increasingly eroded by the policy of zero import duty.

 

Moreover, he continued, the domestic market has deteriorated with the outbreak of used clothing imports via the rat to Sumatra. In fact, imports of used clothing has become a classic problem faced by the domestic textile industry. However, the fact can not be resolved by the government.

 

 

Now, for the export of textile products from Jabar during this problem is not as complex as the domestic market despite the weakening of the rupiah against the US dollar continues to occur.

 

 

Based on data from BPS Jabar, apparel exports in the first quarter / 2015 to reach US $ 481.09 million, down 9.84% from US $ 533.38 million Similar conditions occur in knitted goods which fell by 8.01% from US $ 658.21 million to US $ 605.47 million.

 

Meanwhile, imports of knitted fabrics only edged down 0.04% from US $ 233.25 million to US $ 233.25 million. While cotton imports fell 16.73% to US $ 140.84 million from US $ 169.11 million.

 

 

 

API Minta Safeguard Diberlakukan

Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia (API) Jawa Barat mendesak pemerintah mengambil langkah dalam menghambat banjirnya produk tekstil dan produk tekstil (TPT) di dalam negeri dengan aturan safeguard. Sekretaris API Jabar Kevin Hartanto mengatakan berbagai kebijakan yang selama ini diimplementasikan pemerintah tidak optimal untuk membendung derasnya produk impor TPT.

 

Dia meminta kepada pemerintah menetapkan instrumen aturan safeguard secepatnya.

 

“Sudah sejak dulu pemerintah membuat kebijakan untuk mengerem impor, namun kenyataannya pasar domestik semakin dikuasai produk luar negeri,” ujarnya .

 

Produk impor yang sering mendominasi pasar TPT Indonesia berasal dari China. Bahkan produk yang diimpor merupakan stok lama.

 

Kevin menjelaskan produk dalam negeri sempat merajai pasar domestik selama 15 tahun yang mampu memenuhi kebutuhan sekitar 70%, sementara saat ini hanya tinggal 40%."

 

Menurutnya, penurunan ini terasa signifikan sejak 2010 yang ketika itu masih menguasai 50%  dan makin tergerus dengan kebijakan bea masuk impor nol.

 

Selain itu, lanjutnya, pasar domestik kian memburuk dengan merebaknya impor pakaian bekas lewat jalur tikus ke Sumatera. Padahal, impor pakaian bekas telah menjadi masalah klasik yang dihadapi industri TPT dalam negeri. Namun, kenyataannya tidak bisa diselesaikan oleh pemerintah.

 

 

Adapun, untuk ekspor produk TPT dari Jabar selama ini masalahnya tidak serumit dengan pasar domestik meskipun pelemahan rupiah terhadap dolar Amerika Serikat terus terjadi.

 

 

Berdasarkan data BPS Jabar, ekspor pakaian jadi pada kuartal I/2015 mencapai US$481,09 juta atau turun 9,84% dari US$533,38 juta Kondisi serupa terjadi pada barang rajutan yang turun 8,01% dari US$658,21 juta menjadi US$605.47 juta.

 

Adapun, impor kain rajutan hanya turun tipis 0,04% dari US$233.25 juta menjadi US$233,25 juta. Sementara impor kapas turun 16,73% menjadi US$ 140,84 juta dari US$169,11 juta.
