Closing Import Imports Boost Upstream Textile Production Industry PDF Print E-mail

The Association of Fiber and Yarn Manufacturers Filament assesses the closing of bulk imports to increase the production of upstream textile industry by 15% in the second half of 2017.

 

Redma Gita Wirawasta, Secretary General of the Association of Filament and Filament Yarn Producers (APSyFI), said that the increase in production in the upstream textile sector will give a positive domino effect to the downstream industry.

 

"When wholesale imports have been closed the domestic industry is re-excited, production at the start of the second half of this year is starting to rise," Redma said.

 

According to him, most of the small and medium industries (IKM) convection, knitting, and weaving have approved the policy of closing the import of the bulk. Although conventional IKM initially preferred imported raw materials because they were cheaper, they would switch to buying local knitting and weaving materials.

 

"If the government is consistent with the closing of bulk imports then the overall textile industry sales will increase compared to the second half of last year," he said.

 

Previously, APSyFI noted after the establishment of a high-risk import order taskforce, the sales of filament yarn increased from the end of July to the beginning of August by 30%. Filament sales in normal circumstances can only reach 10,000 tons every 2 weeks. Given the policy of the government, currently upstream textile producers can sell as many as 15,000 tons for the same time frame.

 

"Some manufacturers of raw materials and manufacturers can now re-increase their products," he added.

 

Meanwhile, in addition to APSyFI's wholesale imports, supervision in Bonded Zone needs to be strengthened to prevent seepage. According to calculations, this year the seepage from Bonded Zone can reach 100,000 tons. The seepage products include fabric, garment, and yarn.

 

"The government should also be able to overcome the import of bulk from bonded zones because the number in per year counted a lot," he said.

 

He added that within a year 100,000 tons of seepage is entered into the domestic market without paying value-added taxes and import duties to the detriment of the state and the textile industry indirectly. Nearly 400 containers have escaped government guards and should be more supervised.

 

"Out of the bonded area is not in container form but carried by a small truck or boxed car, the number of less bonded area guards being the main factor of the seepage can escape," he added.

 

Penutupan Impor Borongan Dorong Produksi Industri Hulu Tekstil

 

 

Asosiasi Produsen Serat dan Benang Filamen menilai penutupan impor borongan dapat meningkatkan produksi industri hulu tekstil sebanyak 15% pada semester II/2017.

 

Redma Gita Wirawasta, Sekretaris Jenderal Asosiasi Produsen Serat dan Benang Filament (APSyFI), menyampaikan kenaikan produksi di sektor hulu tekstil tersebut akan memberikan efek domino yang positif kepada industri hilir.

 

"Ketika impor borongan sudah ditutup industri domestik kembali bergairah, produksi pada awal semester kedua tahun ini mulai naik," kata Redma.

 

Menurutnya, sebagian besar industri kecil dan menengah (IKM) konveksi, rajut, dan tenun telah menyetujui kebijakan penutupan impor borongan tersebut. Walau pada awalnya IKM konveksi lebih menyukai bahan baku impor karena lebih murah, mereka akan beralih membeli bahan baku rajut dan tenun dari lokal.

 

"Jika pemerintah konsisten dengan penutupan impor borongan maka penjualan industri tekstil secara keseluruhan akan meningkat dibandingkan dengan semester kedua tahun lalu," katanya.

 

Sebelumnya, APSyFI mencatat setelah dibentuknya satgas penertiban impor berisiko tinggi, penjualan benang filamen meningkat dari akhir Juli sampai awal Agustus sebanyak 30%. Penjualan filamen dalam keadaan normal hanya bisa mencapai 10.000 ton setiap 2 pekan. Dengan adanya kebijakan dari pemerintah tersebut, saat ini produsen hulu tekstil dapat menjual sebanyak 15.000 ton untuk rentang waktu yang sama.

 

"Beberapa produsen bahan baku dan pabrikan kini dapat kembali meningkatkan produknya," imbuhnya.

 

Sementara itu, selain impor borongan APSyFI menilai pengawasan di Kawasan Berikat perlu diperkuat untuk mencegah terjadinya rembesan. Menurut perhitungan, tahun ini rembesan dari Kawasan Berikat bisa mencapai 100.000 ton. Produk rembesan itu meliputi kain, pakaian jadi, dan benang.

 

"Pmerintah juga harus bisa mengatasi impor borongan dari kawasan berikat karena jumlahnya dalam per tahun terhitung banyak," ujarnya.

 

Dia menambahkan, dalam setahun 100.000 ton rembesan tersebut masuk ke dalam pasar domestik tanpa membayar pajak pertambahan nilai dan bea masuk sehingga merugikan negara dan industri tekstil secara tidak langsung. Hampir sekitar 400 kontainer lolos dari penjagaan pemerintah sehingga harus lebih diawasi.

 

"Keluar dari kawasan berikat tidak dalam bentuk kontainer tetapi dibawa truk kecil atau mobil box. Jumlah penjaga kawasan berikat yang kurang menjadi faktor utama rembesan tersebut bisa lolos," imbuhnya.
