Association: The government is expected to limit textile imports PDF Print E-mail

Redma Gita Wirawasta, Secretary General of the Indonesian Synthetic Fiber Producers Association (APSyFI), said in 2013 the company has filed anti-dumping petitions filament yarn and recommend the imposition of safeguards on all textile products. Drop in textile industry and textile products (TPT) is currently not surprising, since this is unpredictable since 2 years ago.

 

However, interested parties in practice imports reject this proposal, even the imposition of anti-dumping effort has foundered filament yarn middle of the road.

 

Based on data from the Central Statistics Agency (BPS) in the last 5 years, the average textile imports rose 19.9 percent, exports rose 6.8 percent, while private consumption rose 18.3 percent. This condition can be that the market growth in the domestic market encroached on imported goods, while exports did not grow significantly.

 

Redma explained that the global economic slowdown led to over supply conditions, producers in other countries slam cent price up to be one of the main causes deterioration of the textile industry at this time, but if the government anticipatory, import controls and provide the domestic market on local producers, the conditions will be much different.

 

"At least we have a place to sell and the industry could still continue to produce" decisive Redma.

 

APSyFI calculations based on data sourced from Bank Indonesia, people's purchasing power in the last 5 years continues to increase where the consumption of textiles rose from 1.21 million tons in 2009 to 1.75 million tons in 2014.

 

Besides driven by increases in population, consumption was also caused by the increase in per capita consumption increased from 5.03 kg in 2009 became 6.82 kg in 2014.

 

For that it re-proposes that the government take immediate steps to limit and control textile imports through the Trade Remedies mechanism, both the Anti-Dumping, Anti-Subsidy and Safeguard. This needs to be done to reclaim the domestic market from upstream to downstream.

 

This condition is shared by manufacturers Purified Terepthelat Acid (PTA) and Mono Ethelene Glycol (MEG) as raw material polyester is incorporated in INAPLAST. According to one of the producers of PTA members INAplas, Cecelia Setiono that in the last 8 months, the supply of PTA 3 PTA producers in the country has dropped drastically.

 

"Supply PTA has dropped by 40 percent" he said. "Our stock pile up, forcing us to reduce production by about 50 percent," he added.

 

Cecep  also explained that the influx of imported fabric becomes a major problem while also flood of imported fibers and yarns.

 

"Both of these issues must be resolved together because of mutual influence," he explained.

 

INAPLAST parties have submitted the matter to the Ministry of Industry.

 

Asosiasi: Pemerintah diharapkan batasi impor TPT

 

Redma Gita Wirawasta, Sekretaris Jenderal Asosiasi Produsen Synthetic Fiber Indonesia (APSyFI), mengatakan pada 2013 pihaknya sudah mengajukan petisi anti dumping benang filament dan merekomendasikan pengenaan safeguard terhadap seluruh produk tekstil. Anjloknya industri tekstil dan produk tekstil (TPT) saat ini bukan hal yang mengejutkan, karena hal ini sudah terprediksikan sejak 2 tahun lalu.

 

Namun pihak yang berkepentingan dalam praktik impor menolak usulan ini, bahkan upaya pengenaan anti dumping benang filament pun kandas ditengah jalan.

 

Berdasarkan data Badan Pusat Statistik (BPS) dalam 5 tahun terakhir, rata-rata impor TPT naik 19,9 persen, ekspor naik 6,8 persen, sedangkan konsumsi masyarakat naik 18,3 persen. Kondisi ini dapat bahwa pasar pertumbuhan dipasar domestik digerogoti barang impor, sedangkan ekspor tidak tumbuh signifikan.

 

Redma menjelaskan bahwa perlambatan ekonomi dunia menyebabkan kondisi over supply, produsen di negara prosen lain banting harga hingga menjadi salah satu sebab utama keterpurukan industri TPT saat ini, namun jika pemerintah antisipatif, mengontrol impor dan memberikan pasar domestik pada produsen lokal, kondisinya akan jauh berbeda.

 

“Minimal kita punya tempat untuk jualan dan industri masih bisa terus berproduksi” tegas Redma.

 

Berdasarkan data kalkulasi APSyFI yang bersumber dari Bank Indonesia, daya beli masyarakat dalam 5 tahun terakhir terus meningkat dimana konsumsi tekstil naik dari 1,21 juta ton ditahun 2009 menjadi 1,75 juta ton ditahun 2014.

 

Selain didorong oleh peningkatan jumlah penduduk, konsumsi masyarakat juga disebabkan oleh peningkatan konsumsi perkapita yang naik dari 5,03 kg ditahun 2009 menjadi 6,82 kg tahun 2014.

 

Untuk itu pihaknya kembali mengusulkan agar pemerintah segera mengambil langkah untuk membatasi dan mengontrol impor TPT melalui mekanisme Trade Remedies, baik Anti Dumping, Anti Subsidi maupun Safeguard. Hal ini perlu segera dilakukan untuk merebut kembali pasar domestik dari hulu ke hilir.

 

Kondisi ini diamini oleh produsen Purified Terepthelat Acid (PTA) dan Mono Ethelene Glycol (MEG) sebagai bahan baku polyester yang tergabung di INAPLAST. Menurut salah satu produsen PTA anggota INAPLAS, Cecep Setiono bahwa dalam 8 bulan terakhir, supply PTA dari 3 produsen PTA didalam negeri sudah turun drastis.

 

“Supply PTA sudah turun hingga 40 persen” tegasnya. “Stok kami menumpuk sehingga memaksa kami untuk menurunkan produksi sekitar 50 persen," tambahnya.

 

Cecep pun menjelaskan bahwa banjirnya impor kain menjadi masalah utama disamping juga banjirnya impor serat dan benang.

 

“Kedua permasalahan ini harus diselesaikan secara bersama-sama karena saling mempengaruhi,” jelasnya.

 

Pihak INAPLAST sudah menyampaikan permasalahan ini kepada Kementerian Perindustrian.
