Indonesia's textile industry uninterested join TPP PDF Print E-mail

Chairman of the Indonesian Textile Association Ade Sudrajat said that if Indonesia still choose to join the Trans-Pacific trade agreement or Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), will be just a waste of time and cost. "Because the fall we'll just become a member and have to start negotiations from scratch," said Ade. He continued with the release of United States (US) from the TPP, the competitive landscape will change the world's exports.

 

Ade said that during the appeal of the TPP for textile manufacturers is the presence of the US and Canada in it. After the US out, it is precisely the existence of Free Trade Agreement (FTA) which is more interesting.

 

"Primarily, the market such as Japan, Korea and the ASEAN Community is now certainly more interesting," he said.

 

On the other hand, Ade admitted to not worry about the Chinese attitude that will move toward the US sepeninggalan TPP. Because the Indonesian textile industry more absorbed by the markets of America, Europe and Japan.

 

While the textile manufacturer PT. Asia Pacific Fibers Tbk (POLY) said that, before deciding to join, the government must have a mechanism of protection to the domestic industry.

 

"Do not let us become a net importer for leniency complacent with export facilities," said freshman Yudha Amdan Executive Assistant President Director of Asia Pacific Fibers (POLY

 

Last year, nearly 15% of Asia Pacific Fibers textile exports to fill the US market, although the delivery is not directly to the land of Uncle Sam.

 

According Yudha, import-export schemes matter if Indonesia joined the TPP will largely determine the future textile market. "If the mechanism was completely freed without considering the domestic production capacity, we could be overwhelmed," said Yudha. POLY is the upstream sector of the textile industry that produce raw materials such as polyester and synthetic fibers.

 

 

Industri Tekstil Tak Bergairah Indonesia join TPP

 

Ketua Umum Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia Ade Sudrajat mengatakan, jika Indonesia tetap memilih bergabung dalam perjanjian perdagangan Trans Pasifik atau Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), akan hanya buang-buang waktu dan biaya.

 

"Soalnya jatuhnya kita cuma jadi member dan harus memulai negosiasi dari awal," ungkap Ade kepada KONTAN, Minggu (26/2). Dia melanjutkan, dengan keluarnya Amerika Serikat (AS) dari TPP, peta persaingan ekspor dunia akan berubah.

 

Ade mengatakan, selama ini yang menjadi daya tarik TPP bagi produsen tekstil ialah keberadaan AS dan Kanada di dalamnya. Setelah AS keluar, justru keberadaan Free Trade Agreement (FTA) yang lebih menarik.

 

"Utamanya, pasar seperti Jepang, Korea dan ASEAN Community saat ini tentu lebih menarik," ujarnya.

 

Di sisi lain, Ade mengaku tak khawatir dengan sikap China yang akan menggerakkan arah TPP sepeninggalan AS. Pasalnya, industri tekstil Indonesia lebih banyak diserap oleh pasar Amerika, Eropa dan Jepang.

 

Sementara produsen tekstil PT. Asia Pacific Fibers Tbk (POLY) mengatakan, sebelum memutuskan bergabung, pemerintah harus punya mekanisme perlindungan terhadap industri dalam negeri.

 

"Jangan sampai kita jadi net importer karena terlena dengan kelonggaran fasilitas ekspor," sebut Prama Yudha Amdan Executive Assistant President Director Asia Pacific Fibers (POLY

 

Tahun lalu, hampir 15% ekspor tekstil Asia Pacific Fibers mengisi pasar Amerika Serikat, meski pengirimannya tidak langsung ke negeri Paman Sam.

 

Menurut Yudha, skema soal ekspor-impor jika Indonesia bergabung dengan TPP akan sangat menentukan pasar tekstil ke depannya. "Kalau mekanismenya itu benar-benar dibebaskan tanpa mempertimbangkan kapasitas produksi dalam negeri, kami bisa kewalahan," sebut Yudha. POLY merupakan sektor hulu dari industri tekstil yang memproduksi bahan baku seperti polyester dan serat sintetis.
