The national textile and textile industry (TPT) industry needs to expand the export market amid the weakening of people's purchasing power. To that end, the government is working to establish bilateral cooperation agreements with the United States and the European Union in encouraging the growth of the labor-intensive sector.

 

"The key is we have to negotiate through the bilateral agreement, because at this time for the import duties of Indonesian textile products to the United States charged 12.5 percent, while to Europe to 16 percent. Whereas Vietnam's exports to America and Europe are already zero percent, "said Minister of Industry of Airlangga Hartarto in Jakarta, Saturday (7/22/2017).

 

Menperin admitted optimistic, national textile industry is able to compete globally. Because, this mainstay sector has been integrated from upstream to downstream and its products are known to have good quality in the international market.

 

"Especially for the sports shoes and apparel industry, we've passed China. Even. In Brazil, we have controlled the market there to 80 percent, "he said.

 

According to Minister of Industry, strengthening competitiveness of national textile industry needs to be done also with the increase of human resource competence.

 

In this regard, the Ministry of Industry initiates a vocational education program that links and matches between SMK and industry.

 

"We have launched this program in several provinces, namely East Java and Central Java and Yogyakarta. Next week will be continued in West Java, until later to Sumatra and other regions in Indonesia, "he said.

 

In 2019, it is targeted that the number of participants who will be involved in the program reaches one million people.

 

Another effort made by Kemenperin is to facilitate the rejuvenation of TPT machinery and industrial equipment. In addition, the Ministry of Industry is currently working on a special regulation for export-oriented labor-intensive industries, which will regulate the provision of fiscal incentives in the form of investment allowance.

 

"We are also aggressively inviting people to use domestic products as support for the growth of national textile industry," added Airlangga.

 

Chairman of the Indonesian Textile Association (API) Ade Sudrajat hopes that free trade negotiations, especially with the EU, can be completed by 2019.

 

He believes, if the bilateral agreement can be realized, then the national textile industry exports will rise to 100 percent within a period of four years. "It will also absorb our workforce even more," he said.

 

API noted, in the period of the last two years, the number of national textile industry increased from 5,600 companies to as many as 5,900 by hoping direct labor to reach two million people.

 

 

Strategi Pemerintah Bawa Produk Tekstil RI Berjaya di Eropa dan AS

 

 

Industri tekstil dan produk tekstil (TPT) nasional perlu memperluas pasar ekspor di tengah melemahnya daya beli masyarakat. Untuk itu, pemerintah tengah berupaya membuat perjanjian kerja sama bilateral dengan Amerika Serikat dan Uni Eropa dalam mendorong pertumbuhan sektor padat karya tersebut.

 

“Kuncinya memang kita harus negosiasi melalui bilateral agreement, karena saat ini untuk bea masuk ekspor produk tekstil Indonesia ke Amerika dikenakan 12,5 persen, sedangkan ke Eropa sampai 16 persen. Padahal ekspor Vietnam ke Amerika dan Eropa sudah nol persen,” kata Menteri Perindustrian Airlangga Hartarto di Jakarta, Sabtu (22/7/2017).

 

Menperin mengaku optimistis, industri TPT nasional mampu berdaya saing global. Pasalnya, sektor andalan ini telah terintegrasi dari hulu sampai hilir dan produknya dikenal memiliki kualitas yang baik di pasar internasional.

 

“Khusus untuk industri shoes and apparel sport, kita sudah melewati China. Bahkan. Di Brazil, kita sudah menguasai pasar di sana hingga 80 persen,” ungkap dia.

 

Menurut Menperin, penguatan daya saing industri TPT nasional perlu dilakukan pula dengan peningkatan kompetensi sumber daya manusia.

 

Dalam hal tersebut, Kementerian Perindustrian menginisiasi program pendidikan vokasi yang link and match antara SMK dan industri.

 

“Kami telah meluncurkan program ini di beberapa provinsi, yakni Jawa Timur serta Jawa Tengah dan Yogyakarta. Pada pekan depan akan dilanjutkan di Jawa Barat, hingga nantinya ke Sumatera dan wilayah lainnya di Indonesia,” papar dia.

 

Pada 2019, ditargetkan jumlah peserta yang akan terlibat dalam program tersebut mencapai satu juta orang.

 

Upaya lain yang dilakukan Kemenperin adalah memfasilitasi peremajaan mesin dan peralatan industri TPT. Selain itu, Kemenperin tengah menggodok regulasi khusus untuk industri padat karya berorientasi ekspor, di mana akan mengatur tentang pemberian insentif fiskal berupa investment allowance.

 

“Kami juga gencar mengajak masyarakat untuk menggunakan produk dalam negeri sebagai dukungan bagi pertumbuhan industri TPT nasional,” tambah Airlangga.

 

Ketua Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia (API) Ade Sudrajat berharap, perundingan perdagangan bebas khususnya dengan Uni Eropa bisa selesai pada tahun 2019.

 

Dia meyakini, apabila perjanjian bilateral tersebut bisa terwujud, maka ekspor industri TPT nasional akan naik hingga 100 persen dalam kurun waktu empat tahun. “Hal ini juga akan menyerap tenaga kerja kita lebih banyak lagi,” ujarnya.

 

API mencatat, dalam periode dua tahun terakhir ini, jumlah industri TPT nasional meningkat dari 5.600 perusahaan menjadi sebanyak 5.900 dengan menyarap tenaga kerja langsung mencapai dua juta orang.
