Dari neraca perdagangan tersebut, Indonesia mengalami surplus sebesar US$ 5,23 miliar atau naik 1,75 persen dibanding tahun 2015 yang hanya mencapai US$ 5,14 miliar.

 

Menurut Airlangga, kerja sama kedua negara khususnya di sektor industri perlu ditingkatkan lagi karena bersifat saling melengkapi.

 

"Selama ini, investasi Amerika masuk ke Indonesia utamanya di sektor industri padat modal dan teknologi. Sedangkan, Indonesia dapat mengisinya melalui industri yang cukup berdaya saing seperti kelompok sektor tekstil, pengolahan karet, kulit, barang kulit dan alas kaki, serta makanan dan minuman," ujar Airlangga

 

Airlangga tengah mendorong perjanjian bilateral untuk meningkatkan ekspor industri tekstil Indonesia ke AS.

 

"Saat ini, produk tekstil kita kena bea masuk di sana sebesar 12,5 persen. Sedangkan, Vietnam sudah nol persen karena ada agreement kedua negara. Jadi, perjanjian tersebut juga akan mendongkrak daya saing produk kita," ungkapnya.

 

Nilai ekspor Indonesia ke AS pada tahun 2016 sebesar US$ 9,13 miliar. Adapun kelompok hasil industri yang juga memiliki nilai ekspor dengan tren positif, antara lain industri pengolahan kelapa sawit, furniture, pulp dan kertas, barang-barang kerajinan, elektronika, serta pengolahan alumunium.

Misalnya, kawasan industri di Dumai dan Tanjung Buton, Riau. Selanjutnya, kawasan industri di Berau-Kalimantan Timur, Gresik-Jawa Timur, Kendal-Jawa Tengah, serta Morowali-Sulawesi Tengah.

 

"Di Sulawesi, kami fokuskan untuk industri pengolahan mineral serta di Riau dan Kalimantan Timur menjadi kawasan industri untuk pengolahan CPO," terang Airlangga.

 

Dia juga berharap, tahun ini ada tambahan investasi atau ekspansi yang terealisasi dari pelaku industri AS. Contohnya, Apple yang akan membangun pusat inovasi di Indonesia.

 

"Pada semester pertama ini, innovation center mereka segera beroperasi. Mereka juga janji akan bangun lebih di tiga kota. Ini akan mendorong investasi berikutnya," paparnya.

 

Industri potensial AS

 

Airlangga menilai, beberapa industri potensial AS yang perlu dijajaki kerja sama dengan pelaku usaha dalam negeri, seperti sektor migas, mineral, pembangkit listrik, transportasi, dan telekomunikasi.
