The same thing was said by the Chairman of the Indonesian Employers Association (Apindo) Hariyadi Sukamdani. According to him, the arrival of Raja Salman should be used by governments and employers to increase its exports to Saudi Arabia.

 

According to Hariyadi, for export to Saudi Arabia many food products and beverages (mamin). In fact, there are still many Indonesian products more likely to enter the market of Saudi Arabia.

 

"We already have a halal certificate. Hopefully not just food and drink it later in the future could open up opportunities for other products, "he said.

He is optimistic, economic cooperation by the Indonesian government with Saudi Arabia will have an impact on increasing trade between the two countries. "Therefore, the government should not mensia siakannya," he explained.

 

Apindo chairman of International Relations and Investment Kamdani Shinta Widjaja said, today it is being advised its members to sell their products to non-traditional markets such as the Middle East and Africa.

 

"We need to strengthen its market to the Middle East because their target market potential ordinary once, for example, the Middle East, especially our Halal products. Also Africa, its enormous opportunity, "he said.

 

Finance Director of PT Industri Jamu and Sido Appears Venancia Indrijati Pharmaceutical said the company had already thrown the oil products to the country. Although already exports to Saudi Arabia, but are still minimal.

 

According to him, the value of exports is still less than 5 percent of the total exports of the product Sido Appear. "We hope that the visit of King Salman be able to increase the sales figures in recent years," he said.

Pengusaha Berharap Ekspor Tekstil ke Arab Saudi Meningkat

 

 

Para pengusaha nasional berharap, kedatangan Raja Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud bisa mendongkrak ekspor produk Indonesia ke Arab Saudi. Sebab, saat ini nilai ekspornya masih kecil. Ketua Umum Asosiasi Pertek­stilan Indonesia (API) Ade Sudrajat berharap, kedatangan Raja Salman dimanfaatkan pe­merintah untuk meningkatkan kerja sama ekspor. Sebab, saat ini ekspor tekstil ke Arab Saudi masih kecil.

 

“Kita pengusaha maunya bisa lebih besar dari sekarang,” ujarnya kepada Bisnis Syariah di Jakarta, kemarin.

 

Dia mengakui, pasar tek­stil Arab Saudi sangat besar. Apalagi, negara tersebut set­iap tahunnya dikunjungi oleh jutaan orang untuk melakukan ibadah Haji dan Umrah. “Kalau bisa lebih besar nilainya tentu akan menguntungkan kita,” ujarnya

 

Menurut Ade, selama ini pen­gusaha nasional kesulitan untuk masuk pasar Arab. Sebab, negeri tersebut mempunyai aturan yang ketat untuk barang-barang impor dari negara lain.

 

“Yang kesulitan ternyata stan­dar di sana itu tinggi di Timur Tengah. Jadi kalau mau ekspor barang itu harus menyesuaikan akibatnya banyak barang yang tidak masuk,” ujar Ade.

 

Maka tidak heran, bila nilai ekspor tekstil Indonesia ke Arab Saudi saat ini terbilang cukup kecil. Padahal Arab Saudi meru­pakan salah satu mitra dagang potensial Indonesia di kawasan Timur Tengah. “Arab Saudi akan menjadi pembuka bagi kita ekspor tekstil ke Afrika,” tukasnya.

 

Hal senada dikatakan oleh Ketua Umum Asosiasi Pengusa­ha Indonesia (Apindo) Hariyadi Sukamdani. Menurutnya, keda­tangan Raja Salman harus di­manfaatkan oleh pemerintah dan pengusaha untuk meningkatkan ekspornya ke Arab Saudi.

 

Menurut Hariyadi, selama ini ekspor ke Arab Saudi banyak produk makanan dan minuman (mamin). Padahal, masih banyak produk-produk Indonesia lain­nya yang berpeluang masuk ke pasar Arab Saudi.

 

“Kita sudah mempunyai ser­tifikat halal. Mudah-mudahan tidak hanya makanan dan mi­numan saja nanti ke depan bisa membuka peluang untuk produk lain,” ujarnya.

 

Menurut dia, sertifikasi halal yang diberikan Majelis Ulama Indonesia (MUI) akan memu­luskan produk dalam negeri diterima Arab Saudi. Misalnya, kosmetik dan tekstil. “Produk-produk yang sudah memiliki sertifikasi halal itu menjadi fokus utama ekspor ke Arab,” kata Hariyadi.

 

Dia optimistis, kerja sama ekonomi yang dilakukan pe­merintah Indonesia dengan Arab Saudi akan berdampak pada peningkatan perdagangan kedua negara. “Karena itu, pemerin­tah jangan mensia-siakannya,” jelasnya.

 

Ketua Apindo Bidang Hubun­gan Internasional dan Investasi Shinta Widjaja Kamdani menga­takan, saat ini pihaknya memang sedang menyarankan anggotanya untuk menjual produknya ke pasar-pasar nontradisional sep­erti Timur Tengah dan Afrika.

 

“Kita perlu memperkuat pasar ke Timur Tengah karena pasar yang biasa mereka sasar poten­sial sekali, contohnya Middle East, terutama produk halal kita. Juga Afrika, opportunity-nya sangat besar,” katanya.

 

Direktur Keuangan PT Indus­tri Jamu dan Farmasi Sido Mun­cul Venancia Indrijati mengata­kan, perseroan sudah melempar produknya ke negeri minyak tersebut. Meski sudah ekspor ke Arab Saudi, tapi jumlahnya masih minim.

 

Menurut dia, nilai ekspornya masih kurang dari 5 persen dari total ekspor produk Sido Muncul. “Kita berharap, kun­jungan Raja Salman bisa bisa memperbesar angka penjualan itu dalam beberapa tahun ini,” ujarnya.

 

Ia mengakui, sejauh ini produk Sido Muncul memang ditujukan bagi warga negara Indonesia yang bertugas di Arab Saudi. Namun, perseroan secara ber­harap secara perlahan produk Sido Muncul bisa diterima war­ga asli Arab Saudi.

 

Berdasarkan data Badan Pusat Statistik (BPS), nilai total per­dagangan nonmigas Indonesia- Arab Saudi periode 2011-2015 memperlihatkan pertumbuhan positif sebesar 3,89 persen per tahun. Rata-rata nilai ekspor nonmigas Indonesia ke Arab Saudi pada periode 2011-2015 tercatat sebesar 1,83 miliar dolar AS per tahun.

 

Sementara itu, rata-rata nilai impor nonmigas Indonesia dari Arab Saudi tercatat sebesar 921,23 juta dolar AS per tahun pada periode yang sama. Neraca perdagangan nonmigas kedua negara mengalami surplus 29,84 persen pada 2015.
