APSyFI: The Textile Industry Request Government to Be Aware of Slowing PDF Print E-mail

The government is asked to move quickly to anticipate the trend of slowing growth in the textile industry sector. Because a number of yarn spinning companies plan to stop the operation because they feel Indonesia is no longer an investment-friendly market.

 

The Indonesian Filament and Fiber Producers Association (APSyFI) expects the government to immediately eliminate various provisions that are not aligned to the industry chain from upstream to downstream. One of them is the restriction policy on import of textile raw materials.

 

Chairman of APSyFI V. Ravi Shankar said the restrictions on raw material imports did have a positive impact on the upstream textile industry. "But the impact for the intermediate and downstream industries of textiles is not so good. Because the price in the country is still high because the cost of production is still very expensive, "said Ravi in ​​a press release Thursday (11/5).

 

According to him, the government needs to develop a clear work plan for the textile industry. Thus, industry players can take investment decisions that determine the direction of the business. At the very least, the industrial roadmap can be a reference for 15-20 years. "China, India, Vietnam and Bangladesh outperform Indonesia because of its clear industry vision."

 

Ravi said that there are many textile companies that bear the losses because the price of textile raw materials in the country is getting higher. The restrictions on imports certainly hoist the domestic cost of goods sold into uncompetitive. This tendency has a direct impact on the stability of the textile and textile product chain which is one of the backbone of the national employment absorption.

 

If the government does not anticipate the issue, it is not impossible to make the textile producers do the termination of employment in an amount not less. Other cost components that make the cost of production increasingly uncompetitive include the high cost of gas and electricity. In addition, the increase in wages into the post cost burden that also needs to be considered.

 

APSyFI: Industri Tekstil Minta Pemerintah Sigap Atasi Perlambatan

 

Pemerintah diminta bergerak cepat mengantisipasi tren perlambatan pertumbuhan sektor industri tekstil. Sebab sejumlah perusahaan pemintalan benang berencana menghentikan operasi lantaran merasa Indonesia bukan lagi pasar yang ramah investasi.

 

Asosiasi Produsen Serat dan Benang Filamen Indonesia (APSyFI) berharap pemerintah segera mengeliminasi berbagai ketentuan yang tak berpihak kepada rantai industri itu sejak hulu hingga ke hilir. Salah satunya kebijakan pembatasan impor bahan baku tekstil.

 

 

Ketua Umum APSyFI V. Ravi Shankar menyatakan pembatasan impor bahan baku memang berdampak positif terhadap industri hulu tekstil. “Tapi dampaknya untuk industri antara dan hilir tekstil justru tidak begitu baik. Sebab harga di dalam negeri masih tinggi karena ongkos produksinya masih sangat mahal,” ujar Ravi dalam siaran pers Kamis (11/5).

 

Menurutnya, pemerintah perlu menyusun penetapan rencana kerja yang jelas bagi industri tekstil. Dengan demikian, para pelaku industri dapat mengambil keputusan investasi yang menentukan arah usaha. Paling tidak, peta jalan industri itu bisa dijadikan acuan selama jangka 15—20 tahun. “Tiongkok, India, Vietnam, dan Bangladesh mengungguli Indonesia karena punya visi industri yang jelas.”

 

Ravi menyatakan sudah banyak perusahaan tekstil yang menanggung kerugian karena harga bahan baku tekstil di dalam negeri semakin tinggi. Pembatasan impor tentu semakin mengerek harga pokok produksi domestik menjadi tidak kompetitif. Kecenderungan itu, berdampak langsung terhadap kestabilan rantai industri tekstil dan produk tekstil yang menjadi salah satu tulang punggung penyerapan tenaga kerja nasional.

 

Bila pemerintah tidak mengantisipasi persoalan tersebut, bukan tidak mungkin membuat produsen tekstil melakukan pemutusan hubungan kerja dalam jumlah yang tidak sedikit. Komponen biaya lain yang membuat ongkos produksi semakin tidak kompetitif antara lain tingginya biaya gas dan listrik. Selain itu, kenaikan upah menjadi pos beban biaya yang juga perlu diperhatikan.
