In the first two months of 2017, textile and textile product (TPT) exports hit US $ 2 billion. Raihan is up by three percent compared to the same period the previous year.

 

"The TPT industry, which is also an export-oriented labor-intensive sector, can be a social safety net because it absorbs a lot of workforce, up to now, estimated at three million people," Airlangga Hartarto's Industry Minister said in a publication on Monday (24/4/2017).

 

Kemenperin noted, in 2016, the investment value of TPT industry reached Rp7, 54 trillion with a significant foreign exchange gain from the export value of 11.87 billion US dollars and able to absorb labor as much as 17.03 percent of the total workforce manufacturing industry.

 

According to Airlangga, the national textile industry industry during the last three years has experienced a contraction in its growth, one of which is driven by new investment and factory expansion in order to increase production capacity, one of which is PT Sritex.

 

"For that, we express our appreciation to PT Sritex which has increased its investment by Rp2.6 trillion to increase production capacity in spinning mills and finishing, which will absorb the new workforce of 3,500 people," he explained. This certainly has a positive impact on tax revenues for the state and at the same time can meet some of the needs of domestic raw materials that are still imported.

 

President Director of PT Sritex Iwan Setiawan Lukminto revealed that the expansion of the factory provides an increase in the company's production capacity.

 

"With the expansion, Sritex Group currently has 24 spinning mills, seven weaving plants, 5 finishing plants and 11 garments, with a total employee of over 50,000 people," he said. Therefore, the development and improvement of human resources (HR) becomes the company's priority.

 

"Human resources are the company's leading assets formed by structured training. In addition, we apply the corporate culture with an integrated and innovative so as to get a tough human resources, skilled, competent and character, "he explained.

 

In order for the national textile industry to improve its competitiveness, which required not only the capital and technology aspects, but competent human resources are absolutely necessary.

 

Therefore, the Ministry of Industry is making efforts to facilitate the improvement of human resources through a program of cooperation that links and match between industrial companies with Vocational High School (SMK).

 

Kemenperin able to hold as many as 117 companies to sign a cooperation agreement with 389 SMK in an effort to run industrial vocational education programs in the region of Central Java and D.I. Yogyakarta.

 

This program is a continuation of which has been launched in Mojokerto, on 28 February 2017 involving as many as 50 companies and 234 SMK in East Java.

 

 

Awal 2017, Ekspor Tekstil Indonesia Capai US$ Dua Miliar

 

 

Dua bulan awal 2017, Ekspor industri tekstil dan produk tekstil (TPT) sentuh angka US$ 2 miliar. Raihan ini naik sebesar tiga persen dibandingkan periode yang sama tahun sebelumnya.

 

"Industri TPT yang juga sektor padat karya berorientasi ekspor ini dapat menjadi jaring pengaman sosial karena banyak menyerap tenaga kerja. Hingga saat ini, diperkirakan mencapai tiga juta orang,” kata Menteri Perindustrian Airlangga Hartarto dalam publikasinya, Senin (24/4/2017).

 

Kemenperin mencatat, pada 2016, nilai investasi industri TPT mencapai Rp7,54 triliun dengan perolehan devisa yang signifikan dari nilai ekspor sebesar 11,87 miliar dollar AS dan mampu menyerap tenaga kerja sebanyak 17,03 persen dari total tenaga kerja industri manufaktur.

 

Menurut Airlangga, industri TPT nasional selama tiga tahun terakhir ini mengalami kontraksi dalam pertumbuhannya, salah satunya didorong oleh investasi baru maupun perluasan pabrik dalam rangka meningkatkan kapasitas produksi, yang salah satunya dilakukan oleh PT Sritex.

 

“Untuk itu, kami menyampaikan apresiasi kepada PT Sritex yang telah menambah investasinya sebesar Rp2,6 triliun guna meningkatakan kapasitas produksi di pabrik pemintalan (spinning) dan penyempurnaan kain (finishing), yang akan menyerap tenaga kerja baru sebanyak 3.500 orang,” paparnya. Hal ini tentu berdampak positif pada penerimaan pajak bagi negara serta sekaligus dapat memenuhi sebagian kebutuhan bahan baku kain dalam negeri yang saat ini masih diimpor.

 

Direktur Utama PT Sritex Iwan Setiawan Lukminto mengungkapkan, perluasan pabrik memberikan peningkatan kapasitas produksi perusahaan.

 

"Dengan perluasan tersebut, saat ini Sritex Grup memiliki 24 pabrik spinning, tujuh pabrik weaving, 5 pabrik finishing dan 11 garment, dengan total karyawan lebih dari 50.000 orang," katanya. Oleh karena itu, pengembangan dan peningkatan sumber daya manusia (SDM) menjadi prioritas perusahaan.

 

“SDM adalah aset unggulan perusahaan yang dibentuk dengan pelatihan-pelatihan terstruktur. Selain itu, kami terapkan budaya perusahaan dengan terintegrasi dan inovatif sehingga mendapatkan SDM yang tangguh, terampil, berkompeten serta berkarakter,” paparnya.

 

Agar industri TPT nasional dapat meningkatkan daya saingnya, yang diperlukan tidak hanya aspek modal dan teknologi, namun SDM yang kompeten mutlak dibutuhkan.

 

Oleh karena itu, Kemenperin sedang melakukan upaya dengan memfasilitasi peningkatan kemampuan SDM melalui program kerja sama yang link and match antara perusahaan industri dengan Sekolah Menengah Kejuruan (SMK).

 

Kemenperin mampu menggandeng sebanyak 117 perusahaan untuk menandatangani perjanjian kerja sama dengan 389 SMK dalam upaya menjalankan program pendidikan vokasi industri di wilayah Jawa Tengah dan D.I. Yogyakarta.

 

Program ini merupakan kelanjutan dari yang telah diluncurkan di Mojokerto, pada 28 Februari 2017 dengan melibatkan sebanyak 50 perusahaan dan 234 SMK di Jawa Timur.
