Director General of Industrial Textiles and Miscellaneous Achmad Sigit Dwiwahjono revealed that imports continued to increase to problems inhibiting growth of textiles in Indonesia. Achmad said that so far in the textile industry imports of fabrics has reached 35 percent. "In many textile imports, imports rose 35 percent fabric, garments are also many illegal imports," Achmad said in a statement.


Achmad added that if the imports can be handled, then the automatic growth of the textile industry will also be improved. He admitted there was some kind of fabric that can not be produced Indonesian society.


Especially fabrics for sports shirts. Nevertheless, Ahmad also urged the Indonesian people still use domestic products as a support for the growth of the textile industry.


"Yes, if that is not the production we can not import anything, but should others ya can use only local products," he continued.


Last Achmad explained that currently authorized for the importation of affairs is the Ministry Perdagangan.Berbeda with the first, the importation of fabrics need a recommendation from the Ministry of Industry on duty to verify whether Importers The manufacturer (IP) as its industrial capacity or not. "Importation it's related to Importers Manufacturers. If IP is definitely linked to the capacity of the industry. Well, who can verify that the Ministry of Industry, because you already know its size, "he said.


Although the current textile imports uncontrollable because there is no yardstick of the Ministry of Trade, but Achmad said he would carry out the instructions of President Joko Widodo, who wants progress of the textile industry of the country. The President instructed to cooperate between the Ministry of Industry and Trade Ministry to be able to control the behavior of the current textile imports.



Impor Memduat Industri Tekstil Domestik Merosot


Direktur Jenderal Industri Tekstil dan Aneka Achmad Sigit Dwiwahjono mengungkapkan impor yang terus meningkat menjadi masalah penghambat pertumbuhan tekstil di Indonesia. Achmad mengatakan sejauh ini impor di industri tekstil jenis kain sudah mencapai 35 persen. “Di tekstil banyak impor, impor kain naik 35 persen, pakaian jadi juga banyak yang impor ilegal,” kata Achmad dalam keterangan tertulisnya.


Achmad menambahkan jika impor-impor tersebut bisa tertangani, maka otomatis pertumbuhan industri tekstil juga akan membaik. Dia mengakui ada beberapa jenis kain yang belum bisa diproduksi masyarakat Indonesia.


Terutama kain untuk kaos olahraga. Kendati demikian, Achmad juga menghimbau agar masyarakat Indonesia tetap menggunakan produk dalam negeri sebagai dukungan untuk pertumbuhan industri tekstil.


“Ya kalau yang nggak bisa kita produksi nggak apa-apa impor, tapi harusnya yang lain-lain ya bisa menggunakan produk lokal saja,” sambungnya.


Terakhir Achmad menjelaskan, saat ini yang berwenang untuk urusan importasi adalah Kementerian Perdagangan.Berbeda dengan dulu, importasi kain perlu rekomendasi dari Kementerian Perindustrian yang bertugas untuk memverifikasi apakah Importir Produsennya (IP) sesuai kapasitas industrinya atau tidak. “Importasi itu kan berkaitan dengan Importir Produsen. Kalau IP sudah pasti dikaitkan dengan kapasitas industrinya. Nah, yang bisa memverifikasi hal itu kan Kemenperin karena yang sudah tahu ukurannya,” paparnya.


Meski impor tekstil saat ini tidak terkendali karena tidak ada tolak ukur dari Kemendag tersebut, tapi Achmad menegaskan akan melaksanakan intruksi Presiden Joko Widodo yang menginginkan kemajuan industri tekstil tanah air. Presiden menginstruksikan untuk bekerja sama antara Kemenperin dan Kemendag agar mampu mengontrol perilaku impor tekstil saat ini. (
