Import Tightening Enhance Create Passion of the Textile Industry PDF Print E-mail

The government's policy to tighten imported products provides fresh air for local industries. This policy makes local products able to compete.


"Since the tightening of imports by the government of Joko Widodo, the development of the textile industry is getting more excited," said Vice Chairman of Domestic Trade Association of Indonesian Textile Association, Hanan Supangkat, in Jakarta, Wednesday, June 14, 2017.


Weak supervision of imports, said Hanan, could make local products less competitive. The reason is, imported products sold at low prices in the market. As a result, local products increasingly less competitive.


In contrast, imported products are increasingly penetrating the Indonesian market and people are increasingly being pampered. "People become consumptive and this condition also undermines employment," he said.


Hanan said he was not anti with imported products. With a note, the imported products entered through the official channels.


Up 75 Percent


President Director of PT Mulia Knitting Factory said, tightening imported products have a positive impact for business.


He pointed out, during this Ramadan, sales of underwear products that became the mainstay of the company, can increase up to 75 percent. In fact, last year, the highest increase of 25 percent.


Currently, Hanan is still focusing on the domestic market. Given the market share in the country for the type of underwear is very high.


"Many outside products are trying to enter Indonesia because of the large population of our market," he said.



Pengetatan Impor Tingkatkan Gairah Industri Tekstil




Kebijakan pemerintah memperketat masuknya produk impor memberikan angin segar bagi industri lokal. Kebijakan ini membuat produk lokal mampu bersaing.


"Sejak pengetatan impor yang dilakukan pemerintah Joko Widodo, perkembangan industri tekstil semakin bergairah," kata Wakil Ketua Umum Bidang Perdagangan Dalam Negeri Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia, Hanan Supangkat, di Jakarta, Rabu 14 Juni 2017.


Pengawasan impor yang lemah, kata Hanan, sempat membuat produk lokal kalah bersaing. Pasalnya, produk impor dijual dengan harga miring di pasaran. Alhasil, produk lokal semakin kalah bersaing.


Sebaliknya, produk impor semakin merambah pasar Indonesia dan masyarakat semakin dimanjakan. "Masyarakat menjadi konsumtif. Kondisi ini juga menggerus lapangan pekerjaan," kata dia.


Hanan mengatakan dirinya tak anti dengan produk impor. Dengan catatan, produk impor itu masuk melalui jalur resmi.


Naik 75 Persen


Presiden Direktur PT Mulia Knitting Factory ini mengatakan, pengetatan produk impor berdampak positif bagi usahanya.


Dia mencontohkan, saat Ramadan ini, penjualan produk pakaian dalam yang menjadi andalan perusahannya, bisa meningkat hingga 75 persen. Padahal, tahun lalu, peningkatan paling tinggi 25 persen.


Saat ini, Hanan masih fokus menggarap pasar dalam negeri. Mengingat pangsa pasar di dalam negeri untuk jenis pakaian dalam sangat tinggi.


"Banyak produk luar yang mencoba masuk ke Indonesia karena melihat besarnya populasi pasar kita," kata dia.
