United States is eager to enhance cooperation between the US textile industry in Indonesia. This effort is not because the US is the main supplier of cotton. US Ambassador to Indonesia, Joseph R Donovan during a meeting with a number of businessmen who are members of the Indonesian Textile Association hopes to receive input from the textile entrepreneurs in Indonesia and get the cooperation agreement between the US-Indonesia.

 

 

Director General of Chemical Industry, Textile and Miscellaneous of the Ministry of Industry, Achmad Sigit Dwiwahjono said the meeting was the first time with the new US ambassador to Indonesia. The government plans to speed up the agreement between the two countries more concrete in the textile field.

 

"We have a center or center material raw material provider of industrial products, in order to facilitate small and medium industry (SMI) to obtain raw materials at affordable prices," Sigit said in a statement in Jakarta, Wednesday (24/3).

 

Sigit said, imports of cotton to the needs of the textile industry in Indonesia reached 70 percent. The government plans to strengthen the material center of the textile industry in West Java one by setting up special schools to develop other types of cotton but with a different quality.

 

In addition to establishing the cotton special schools, Sigit also mentioned in order to succeed Kemenperin vocational program, IKTA will cooperate with 500 vocational schools in East Java and Central Java to school practice in the textile industry and other indsutry that are in scope IKTA.

 

Currently, the government continues to fight for Indonesian textiles are not subject to tariffs as in Vietnam. Sigit hope, the future cooperation with the US can be developed mainly to develop the textile industry from upstream to downstream.

 

"Hopefully, the cooperation with the US to develop the textile industry from upstream to downstream," he concluded.

 

Until the end of 2016 years ago, the value of US cotton exports to Indonesia reached USD 350 million, the largest compared with other countries. This is certainly a positive impact on Indonesia to create jobs wider.

 

 

Kementrian Perindustrian Percepat Kesepakatan Industri Tekstil dengan AS

 

 

Amerika Serikat berkeinginan untuk meningkatkan kerja sama industri tekstil antara AS-Indonesia. Upaya ini tidak lain karena AS merupakan pemasok utama kapas. Duta Besar AS untuk Indonesia, Joseph R Donovan pada saat pertemuan dengan sejumlah pengusaha yang tergabung dalam Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia berharap dapat menerima masukan-masukan dari kalangan pengusaha tekstil di Indonesia dan mendapatkan perjanjian kerja sama antara AS-Indonesia.

 

Dirjen Industri Kimia, Tekstil, dan Aneka Kementerian Perindustrian, Achmad Sigit Dwiwahjono mengatakan, pertemuan tersebut merupakan yang pertama kalinya dengan dubes baru AS untuk Indonesia. Pemerintah berencana mempercepat adanya kesepakatan kedua negara yang lebih konkret di bidang pertekstilan.

 

"Kami punya material center atau pusat penyedia bahan baku produk industri, tujuannya untuk mempermudah pelaku industri kecil dan menengah (IKM) mendapatkan bahan baku dengan harga yang terjangkau," kata Sigit dalam keterangannya di Jakarta, Rabu (24/3).

 

Sigit menyebut, impor kapas untuk kebutuhan industri tekstil di Indonesia mencapai 70 persen. Pemerintah berencana untuk memperkuat material center industri tekstil salah satunya di Jawa Barat dengan mendirikan sekolah khusus kapas untuk mengembangkan jenis lain namun dengan kualitas yang berbeda.

 

Selain mendirikan sekolah khusus kapas tersebut, Sigit juga menyebutkan dalam rangka menyukseskan program vokasi Kemenperin, IKTA akan bekerja sama dengan 500 SMK di Jawa Timur dan Jawa Tengah untuk melakukan praktik sekolah di industri tekstil dan indsutri lainnya yang berada di lingkup IKTA.

 

Saat ini, pemerintah masih terus memperjuangkan agar tekstil Indonesia tidak dikenakan tarif seperti di Vietnam. Sigit berharap, ke depan kerja sama dengan AS dapat dikembangkan terutama untuk mengembangkan industri pertekstilan dari hulu sampai hilir.

 

"Semoga kerja sama dengan AS bisa mengembangkan industri pertekstilan dari hulu sampai hilir," pungkasnya.

 

Hingga akhir 2016 tahun lalu, nilai ekspor kapas AS untuk Indonesia mencapai angka USD 350 juta, terbesar dibanding dengan negara lainnya. Hal ini tentu memberikan dampak positif bagi Indonesia untuk menciptakan lapangan kerja yang lebih luas.
