Chairman of the Association Textiles Indonesia (API), Ade Sudrajat said, there are many positive effects that can be felt from Indonesia's participation in two of the free trade agreement. One of them is the export of Indonesian products, especially textiles would have jumped sharply.


Employers textiles and textile products (TPT) in the country hoped Indonesia could soon join the free trade Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA).


He states, with the participation of Indonesia in TPP and CEPA, the textile exports will increase to double in the next 5 years. This increase will occur in particular to countries in the European Union and the United States (US).


"With the TPP and CEPA, we can boost exports to Europe. Now the only European to US $ 2.4 billion per year. But at least in five years we could double or around US $ 5 billion. If the US to export we are around  $ 4.6 billion, could be $ 10 billion within five years. Similarly to other countries, "he said

Ade said, the example of the successful increase of textile exports due to participate in the TPP and CEPA is Vietnam. Even today the country's exports could increase to 12 percent per year. Meanwhile, Indonesian textile exports declined by 2 percent last year.


"Total exports of us $ 12 billion, down 2 percent yesterday we wanted to come back this year. Vietnam grew 12 percent. There are striking differences. So Vietnam is an example of success," he said.


Ade said, the origin of textile products Indonesia is also difficult to compete with Vietnamese products in the European and US markets. Because Vietnam get a duty exemption due to participate in the free trade agreement. However, if participating in the TPP and CEPA, the Indonesian textile exports Vietnam is believed to be exceeded.


"Competition opponent will be orange juice, grapefruit opponent duku if now, we were bruises. How can win. Because we have to pay import duties. While Vietnam duty-free," he said.
