Ketua KADIN Surakarta G. Haryanto MT menyampaikan apresiasi dan dukungan atas upaya-upaya untuk mendukung peningkatan perdagangan tekstil dan garmen melalui pengenalan peluang pasar di kawasan Asia Selatan dan Tengah.


"Secara garis besar potensi kerja sama bilateral RI dengan negara-negara di kawasan Asia Selatan dan Tengah belum mencerminkan seluruh potensi yang ada," tutur Direktur Asia Selatan dan Tengah Listyowati dalam sambutan pembukaan. "Oleh karena itu kegiatan ini diselenggarakan sebagai bentuk upaya penguatan diplomasi ekonomi yang dijalankan oleh Kementerian Luar Negeri, serta untuk memperkenalkan prospek dan peluang di pasar non tradisional, khususnya kawasan Asia Selatan dan Tengah, sekaligus juga untuk pengembangan jejaring kerjasama antara pemerintah daerah dan pelaku usaha di daerah dengan perwakilan asing, utamanya perwakilan negara-negara kawasan Asia Selatan dan Tengah."


Total perdagangan Indonesia dengan negara-negara Asia Selatan umumnya cukup tinggi dan melewati nilai USD 1 milyar. India mencapai USD 16 miliar, dengan Pakistan USD 2 miliar, dengan Bangladesh USD 1,4 miliar. Disampaikan pula, nilai perdagangan bilateral Indonesia dengan negara-negara Asia Tengah masih di bawah USD 1 miliar, kecuali dengan Azerbaijan yang melampaui USD 1 miliar namun didominasi oleh migas.

Untuk ke depannya, Indonesia dan Azerbaijan dapat bekerjasama untuk membuat produk Indonesia, termasuk tekstil dan produk tekstil, lebih dikenal oleh masyarakat Azerbaijan," kata Dubes Azerbaijan.


"Kendala utama ekspor Indonesia ke Kazakhstan adalah logistik mengingat Kazakhstan adalah landlocked country. Namun demikian, Kazakhstan terbuka bagi pembentukan joint stock company dengan Indonesia sehingga Indonesia dapat memanfaatkan Kazakhstan sebagai hub untuk memasuki pasar Eurasian Economic Union yang lain (Armenia, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, dan Rusia) dengan segala kemudahannya," kata Dubes Kazakhstan.


"Walaupun Indonesia dan Bangladesh merupakan sesama pemain besar di sektor tekstil dan produk tekstil dunia, namun pada kenyataannya telah terjalin kerjasama yang erat di antara kedua negara dan tidak tertutup kemungkinan untuk kerjasama lain, misalnya desain dari Indonesia diproduksi di Bangladesh," kata Dubes Bangladesh. Ia menambahkan bahwa produk busana muslim asal Indonesia cukup diminati di Bangladesh.


Dubes Sri Lanka menyampaikan bahwa industri tekstil merupakan salah satu industri unggulan Sri Lanka dan AS serta Eropa masih menjadi destinasi ekspor utama Sri Lanka. Untuk memenuhi standar internasional, Sri Lanka mendukung inisiatif "Garment without Guilt" dan menjadi pihak atau menandatangani aturan-aturan global terkait perlindungan buruh, keselamatan lingkungan, etika bisnis yang baik, dan sebagainya.
