Vice Chairman of Trade Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin) of Trade Benny Soetrisno who is also a textile entrepreneur, said that negotiations that have not found a meeting point have the potential to hamper the export of Indonesian textile products to Europe.


"The impact is an opportunity to increase the export of Textile and Textile Products (TPT) to Europe because it can not be implemented," Benny said when met at Menara Kadin, Jakarta, Monday (5/3).


Benny hopes the government can support entrepreneurs to gain wider market access. He hopes the I-EU CEPA agreement will result in a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) such as the EU agreement with Singapore and Vietnam.


According to him, so far the textile industry in Indonesia is still inferior to the textile industries of other countries such as Bangladesh and Vietnam because the textile industry in the country free from import duty when exporting to the EU. "Indonesian textile import duty to Europe 7% -12%, Vietnam 0%, Bangladesh 0%," he explained.


Based on data from the Ministry of Trade, in 2017 the EU is the 6th largest export destination and the 4th largest import origin for Indonesia, with a value of USD 16.2 billion and USD 11.2 billion, respectively.


Indonesia's total trade with the EU in 2017 reached USD 27.4 billion. Over the past five years, the trade balance has shown a surplus for Indonesia.


Perjanjian Perdagangan Bebas RI-Uni Eropa Bisa Genjot Ekspor Tekstil


Wakil Ketua Umum Kadin Bidang Perdagangan Benny Soetrisno yang juga pengusaha tekstil mengatakan, perundingan yang saat ini belum menemukan titik temu berpotensi menghambat ekspor produk tekstil Indonesia ke Eropa.


"Dampaknya kesempatan untuk meningkatkan ekspor Tekstil dan Produk Tekstil (TPT) Ke Eropa karena tidak bisa dilaksanakan," kata Benny saat ditemui di Menara Kadin, Jakarta, Senin (5/3).


Benny berharap pemerintah bisa mendukung pengusaha untuk mendapatkan akses pasar lebih luas. Ia berharap perjanjian I-EU CEPA ini menghasilkan Free Trade Agreement (FTA) seperti perjanjian Uni Eropa dengan Singapura dan Vietnam.


Menurut dia, selama ini industri tekstil di Indonesia masih kalah dengan industri tekstil negara lain seperti Bangladesh dan Vietnam karena industri tekstil di negara tersebut terbebas dari bea masuk ketika melakukan ekspor ke Uni Eropa. "Bea masuk tekstil Indonesia ke Eropa 7%-12%, Vietnam 0%, Bangladesh 0%," jelasnya.


Berdasarkan data Kemendag, pada tahun 2017 Uni Eropa adalah tujuan ekspor terbesar ke-6 dan asal impor terbesar ke-4 bagi Indonesia, dengan nilai masing-masing sebesar USD 16,2 miliar dan USD 11,2 miliar.


Total perdagangan Indonesia dengan Uni Eropa pada 2017 mencapai USD 27,4 miliar. Selama kurun waktu lima tahun terakhir, neraca perdagangan menunjukkan surplus bagi Indonesia.
