Cancellation TPP Making Indonesia Equivalent Position in the US Market PDF Print E-mail

Step United States (US) withdrew from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact or Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) making Indonesian products can compete fairly in the US market. Some neighboring countries, such as Vietnam and Malaysia who had already joined the TPP enjoy the ease and lightness of tariffs when exporting to the US.

 

Not surprisingly, Indonesia's main exports to the United States, such as textiles compete with the price of textile products from Vietnam. This is detrimental to Indonesia.

 

"If it later turns TPP does not walk, Indonesia could benefit because we become similar position again," said Head of the Department of Economics Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) Yose Rizal Damuri.

According Yose, TPP is not really walking and legal certainty can only be taken in February 2018. Thus, all possibilities can still occur, including the US stance could change.

 

If the US really out or not participate in the TPP, said Yose, the superpower will definitely look for other alternatives such as by bilateral cooperation. If the US then want to run the bilateral cooperation initiatives, Indonesia is expected to be more active in it.

 

Yose is also included in the assessment team TPP with the Ministry of Commerce said the team would continue the study but has led to other alternatives, including a potential bilateral with the US.

 

Meanwhile, former Minister of Trade Mari Elka Pangestu said that any steps taken by the US, Indonesia should continue various trade negotiation process, for example with the European Union.

 

"In ASEAN we also have to continue to do the integration. We've already got a deal RCEP (Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership). So, even if we invalidated TPP hope there are other things that will continue to run, "he said.

 

 

Pembatalan TPP Menjadikan Posisi Indonesia Setara di Pasar AS

 

 

Langkah Amerika Serikat (AS) menarik diri dari pakta perdagangan Kemitraan Trans Pasifik atau Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) menjadikan produk Indonesia bisa bersaing secara adil di pasar AS.

 

Beberapa negara tetangga, seperti Vietnam dan Malaysia yang sudah lebih dulu bergabung dengan TPP menikmati kemudahan dan keringanan tarif saat mengekspor ke AS. Tak heran, ekspor unggulan Indonesia ke Amerika Serikat, seperti tekstil kalah bersaing harganya dengan produk tekstil dari Vietnam. Hal ini merugikan Indonesia.

 

“Kalau nanti ternyata TPP tidak jadi berjalan, Indonesia bisa diuntungkan karena posisi kita menjadi setara lagi,” ujar Kepala Departemen Ekonomi Center For Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) Yose Rizal Damuri.

Menurut Yose, TPP sebetulnya belum berjalan dan secara hukum kepastiannya baru bisa diambil pada Februari 2018. Sehingga, segala kemungkinan masih bisa terjadi, termasuk sikap AS pun bisa saja berubah.

 

Andaikata AS benar-benar keluar atau tidak ikut dalam TPP, lanjut Yose, negara adidaya itu pasti akan mencari alternatif lain misalnya dengan kerja sama bilateral. Jika AS kemudian mau menjalankan inisiatif kerja sama bilateral, diharapkan Indonesia bisa lebih aktif di dalamnya.

 

Yose yang juga masuk dalam tim kajian TPP bersama Kementerian Perdagangan mengungkapkan, tim tetap akan melanjutkan kajian namun sudah mengarah ke alternatif lain, termasuk potensi bilateral dengan AS. 

 

Sementara itu, mantan Menteri Perdagangan Mari Elka Pangestu mengatakan, apapun langkah yang diambil AS, Indonesia hendaknya tetap melanjutkan berbagai proses negosiasi perdagangan, misalnya dengan Uni Eropa.

 

“Di ASEAN juga kita harus terus melakukan integrasi. Kita kan sudah punya kesepakatan RCEP (Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership). Jadi, kalaupun TPP batal kita berharap ada hal-hal lain yang akan terus berjalan,” tandasnya.
