Trade Minister Enggartiasto Lukita said the summit of the Indian Ocean Rim Association of State or the Indian Ocean Rim Association (IORA) has just been held to be followed by a bilateral agreement between Indonesia and the member countries IORA.

 

So far there are 21 chambers of commerce agreement with the member states and to formulate IORA 11 main ideas that will be poured into Action Plan.Enggartiasto said the cooperation with members of IORA of mostly developing countries this would be a distinct advantage for Indonesia,

 

Because it has an average economic growth and high inflation. Therefore, it is expected this cooperation could improve Indonesia's trade surplus. "The market has great potential," he said, Thursday (9/3).

 

Sasmito Hadi Wibowo, Deputy Head of Distribution and Services Statistics BPS said that there are many variations of Indonesia's superior products that can be sold. Such as derivative products, coffee, rubber, electronics, textiles, fruits and glassware. "Stay adjusted any segment, whether high end, midle end or low end," he said.

 

Sasmito exemplifies Africa, although its earnings in general are under Indonesia, but has a huge market. While the Middle East, though not as much as the population of Africa, but higher revenue.

 

 "African population is over 500 million, may already flown a third is good. Let glove, it was already in Egypt and Somalia, Well it needs to spread to many countries in Africa," he said.

 

UN Comtrade data mentioned, in 1996, Indonesia's balance of trade surplus with countries IORA of U $ S 451 million, but in 2008 dropped to a deficit of US $ 6.3 billion. After the 2009-2011 back in a surplus of US $ 2 billion, US $ 915 million and US $ 1.1 billion, then in 2012 to 2014, successively returned a deficit of US $ 4.2 billion, US $ 4.9 billion and US $ 1.5 billion.

 

By 2015, Indonesia's balance of trade with countries IORA back recorded a surplus of US $ 2.5 billion. The surplus value was not matched the achievements of a surplus of over US $ 5 billion that occurred in 1998, 2000 and 2007.

 

 

IORA ditargetkan dorong surplus perdagangan

 

 

 

Menteri Perdagangan Enggartiasto Lukita mengatakan, KTT Asosiasi Negara Lingkar Samudera Hindia atau Indian Ocean Rim Association (IORA) yang baru saja digelar akan ditindaklanjuti dengan sejumlah perjanjian bilateral antar Indonesia dengan negara-negara anggota IORA.

 

Sejauh ini sudah ada kesepakatan dengan 21 kamar dagang negara anggota IORA dan merumuskan 11 pokok pikiran yang akan dituangkan ke Action Plan.Enggartiasto mengatakan, kerjasama dengan anggota IORA yang kebanyakan merupakan negara berkembang ini akan menjadi suatu keuntungan tersendiri bagi Indonesia,

 

Karena memiliki rata-rata pertumbuhan ekonomi dan inflasi yang tinggi. Oleh karena itu diharapkan kerjasama ini bisa meningkatkan surplus perdagangan Indonesia. "Pasar ini sangat potensial," ujarnya, Kamis (9/3).

 

Sasmito Hadi Wibowo, Deputi Bidang Statistik Distribusi dan Jasa BPS menuturkan ada banyak variasi produk unggulan Indonesia yang bisa dijual. Seperti produk turunan CPO, kopi, karet, elektronik, tekstil, buah-buahan dan barang pecah belah. "Tinggal disesuaikan apa segmennya, apakah high end, midle end, atau low end," katanya.

 

Sasmito mencontohkan Afrika, walaupun pendapatannya secara umum berada di bawah Indonesia, namun memiliki pasar yang besar. Sedangkan Timur Tengah, meski penduduknya tak sebanyak Afrika, tapi pendapatannya tinggi.

 

 "Afrika penduduknya lebih dari 500 juta, mungkin yang sudah tergarap sepertiganya sudah bagus. Misalkan sarung, itu sudah masuk Mesir dan Somalia, Nah ini perlu disebarkan ke banyak negara di Afrika," ujarnya.

 

Data UN Comtrade menyebutkan, pada 1996, surplus neraca dagang Indonesia dengan negara IORA sebesar U$S 451 juta, namun pada 2008 anjlok menjadi defisit sebesar US$ 6,3 miliar. Setelah 2009-2011 kembali surplus US$ 2 miliar, US$ 915 juta dan US$1,1 miliar, selanjutnya di 2012 sampai 2014, berturut-turut kembali defisit sebesar US$ 4,2 miliar, US$ 4,9 miliar dan US$ 1,5 miliar.

 

Baru pada tahun 2015 neraca dagang Indonesia dengan negara-negara IORA kembali tercatat surplus sebesar US$ 2,5 miliar. Nilai surplus itu pun belum menyamai capaian surplus di atas US$ 5 miliar yang terjadi di tahun 1998, 2000 dan 2007.
