The decline in gas prices is believed to reduce imports of textile and textile products (TPT). Said the Chairman of the Indonesian Textile Association (API) Ade Sudrajat. "If the price is cheaper, imports can be much more down. Can be up to 20 percent decline," said Ade in Jakarta.Ade said that gas for the textile industry used as raw materials and energy,


 which contributes nearly 22 percent of all production costs. According to Ade, the textile industry requires the price of gas up to 6 dollars per million British Thermal Units (MMBTU) to be competitive, where the current price reached 9.75 to 12 US dollars per MMBTU.


"Ya do not need to be like Singapore 4 US dollars per MMBTU, at least, like Vietnam that cost six dollars per MMBTU," said Ade.


Ade added, imports of textile products that are still considered high as a result of the domestic industry is not competitive. Known, the textile industry being the industry proposed to obtain a decrease in gas prices to the cost of production. However, it is still the subject of intense because of all the imports were still substantial.


API Minta Harga Gas 6 Dollar AS per MMBTU


Penurunan harga gas diyakini mampu menekan impor industri tekstil dan produk tekstil (TPT). Demikian disampaikan Ketua Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia (API) Ade Sudrajat. "Kalau harganya lebih murah, impornya bisa jauh lebih turun. Bisa sampai 20 persen penurunannya," kata Ade di Jakarta.

Ade menyampaikan, gas bagi industri TPT digunakan sebagai bahan baku maupun energi, yang berkontribusi hampir 22 persen terhadap seluruh biaya produksi.

Menurut Ade, industri TPT membutuhkan harga gas hingga 6 dollar AS per million British Thermal Units (MMBTU) untuk dapat berdaya saing, di mana saat ini harganya mencapai 9,75-12 dollar AS per MMBTU.

"Ya tidak perlu seperti Singapura yang 4 dollar AS per MMBTU, setidaknya, seperti Vietnam yang harganya 6 dollar AS per MMBTU," ungkap Ade.

Ade menambahkan, impor produk TPT yang dinilai masih tinggi akibat dari industri dalam negeri yang belum memiliki daya saing. Diketahui, industri TPT menjadi satu industri yang diajukan untuk mendapat penurunan harga gas untuk biaya produksinya. Namun, hal tersebut masih belum menemui titik terang karena terganjal impor yang masih besar.
