The government is working to establish cooperation agreements with the United States and the European Union to expand the export market of the national textile and textile industry (TPT).


"Currently in the process of negotiating for bilateral approval. Because the import duty of Indonesian textile product exports is still subject to 5 to 20 percent, while Vietnam's exports to America and Europe are zero percent, "said Minister of Industry, Erlangga Hartarto in his official statement on Saturday, September 16, 2017.


Airlangga is optimistic that the national textile industry can compete globally. Because, this 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 equipment industry we've passed China. In fact, in Brazil, we have mastered the market there to 80 percent, "he said.


Airlangga said the government projected the value of textile industry exports could grow to 15 billion US dollars in the next two years. The optimism comes with the implementation of the program and the incentives given to spur the sector.


"The textile industry is an export-oriented labor-intensive sector. By 2019, we target (the textile industry) to absorb as many as 3.11 million people, "he said.


Airlangga estimates that by 2019 there will be additional production capacity of 1,638 thousand tons per year with investment value of Rp 81.45 trillion and employment of 424,261 people.


"To achieve these targets, new investment and expansion in every sector of textile industry," he said.


The government, Airlangga said, also seeks to create a conducive investment climate by issuing policies that enable industry players to work in Indonesia. For example, facilitating the provision of fiscal incentives such as temporary tax reduction or tax allowance and tax holiday.


"To improve competitiveness, the government is running an industry vocational education program in preparing competent workers as needed in the field," he said.


Genjot Ekspor Tekstil, Pemerintah Negosiasi dengan Amerika


Pemerintah tengah berupaya membuat perjanjian kerja sama dengan Amerika Serikat dan Uni Eropa untuk memperluas pasar ekspor industri tekstil dan produk tekstil (TPT) nasional.


“Saat ini dalam proses negosiasi untuk persetujuan bilateral. Karena bea masuk ekspor produk tekstil Indonesia masih dikenakan 5 sampai 20 persen, sedangkan ekspor Vietnam ke Amerika dan Eropa sudah nol persen,” kata Menteri Perindustrian, Erlangga Hartarto dalam keterangan resminya, Sabtu, 16 September 2017.


Airlangga optimis, industri TPT nasional mampu berdaya saing global. Sebab, sektor ini telah terintegrasi dari hulu sampai hilir dan produknya dikenal memiliki kualitas yang baik di pasar internasional.


“Khusus untuk industri perlengkapan olahraga kita sudah melewati Cina. Bahkan, di Brazil, kita sudah menguasai pasar di sana hingga 80 persen,” kata dia.


Airlangga mengatakan, pemerintah memproyeksikan nilai ekspor industri TPT mampu tumbuh hingga 15 miliar dolar AS dalam dua tahun ke depan. Optimisme itu muncul seiring pelaksanaan program dan insentif yang diberikan untuk memacu sektor tersebut.


“Industri tekstil merupakan sektor padat karya berorientasi ekspor. Pada tahun 2019, kami menargetkan (industri tekstil) mampu menyerap tenaga kerja sebanyak 3,11 juta orang,” kata dia.


Airlangga memperkirakan, pada 2019 akan ada penambahan kapasitas produksi sebanyak 1.638 ribu ton per tahun dengan nilai investasi Rp 81,45 triliun dan penyerapan tenaga kerja sebanyak 424.261 orang.


“Untuk mencapai sasaran tersebut, dibutuhkan investasi baru dan ekspansi di setiap sektor industri TPT,” kata dia.


Pemerintah, kata Airlangga, juga berusaha menciptakan iklim investasi yang kondusif dengan menerbitkan kebijakan yang memudahkan pelaku industri untuk berusaha di Indonesia. Misalnya, memfasilitasi pemberian insentif fiskal berupa pengurangan pajak sementara atau tax allowance dan tax holiday.


“Untuk meningkatkan daya saing, pemerintah tengah menjalankan program pendidikan vokasi industri dalam menyiapkan tenaga kerja yang kompeten sesuai kebutuhan di lapangan,” kata dia.
