EU Trade Agreement Will Raise Textile Exports 3 Times Fold PDF Print E-mail

Indonesia's textile market share in the world today is only 1.8%. With free trade estimated to be 5-6%. Director General of Textile and Multifarious Chemical Industry (IKTA) of the Ministry of Industry, Achmad Sigit Dwiwahjono, said that the free trade agreement between Indonesia and the EU will boost the textile and textile products (TPT) export up to three times. Ministry of Industry hopes the Ministry of Commerce to speed up the settlement of a free trade agreement with the EU.

 

Sigit said, with the enactment of free trade with the EU, the import duty of TPT industry exports to Europe can be 0%. Currently, the import duty of TPT industry exports is 12%. Thus, the Ministry of Industry is optimistic that the opening of the agreement will boost Indonesia's textile market share in the world which is currently only at 1.8%.

 

"(With RI-EU free trade) exports rose by 5-6% in the world.This is a hope for the future," said Sigit at the Academy of TPT Industrial Community of Surakarta, Solo, Central Java, Monday (12/3).

 

Sigit said Indonesia has a strong textile industry structure to be able to compete in the global sphere. "It means the world market is still very open for our exports," said Sigit.

 

According Sigit, free trade with the EU is important because the region has the largest contribution in the export of textile industry. According to Sigit, exports to Europe account for 30% of total exports made during 2017. "The value is US $ 5 billion to Europe," said Sigit.

 

If free trade with the EU can not be implemented in the near future, Sigit considers early harvest policy can be done. Later, exported textile products can be exchanged for other commodities from Europe to enter Indonesia. "Whether we exchange with automotive or other commodities in order to enter Europe," he said.

 

Previously the urgency of accelerating the agreement came from the Indonesian Textile Association (API) asking the government to speed up the negotiating process of trade agreements with a number of countries.

 

Based on data from Bank Indonesia (BI) processed API, the total exports of Indonesian textiles over the past year reached US $ 11.83 billion. The largest export destination of domestic textile is the United States (US) of 32.34%, European Union 14.97%, and Japan 10.08%.

 

API Executive Secretary Ernovian Ismy said the API had requested that the government also make trade agreements, at least with the country that has been the largest market of Indonesian export products. Ernovian claims this request has been submitted through an official letter to the government.

 

According to him, Indonesia is still less rapid when compared with Vietnam in a deal agreement. Though the quality of Indonesian textiles is very competitive with more than 240 Indonesian products that have been worldwide. Therefore, the API also calls for an acceleration in trade agreement negotiations to boost exports next year.

 

 

Perjanjian Dagang Uni Eropa Bakal Naikkan Ekpor Tekstil 3 Kali Lipat

 

Pangsa pasar tekstil Indonesia di dunia saat ini hanya 1,8%. Dengan perdagangan bebas diperkirakan menjadi 5-6%. Direktur Jenderal Industri Kimia Tekstil dan Aneka (IKTA) Kementerian Perindustrian Achmad Sigit Dwiwahjono menyatakan dibukanya perdagangan bebas (free trade agreement) antara Indonesia dan Uni Eropa bakal menggenjot ekspor industri tekstil dan produk tekstil (TPT) hingga tiga kali lipat. Kemenperin berharap Kementerian Perdagangan mempercepat penyelesaian perjanjian perdagangan bebas dengan Uni Eropa.

 

Sigit mengatakan, dengan diberlakukannya perdagangan bebas dengan Uni Eropa, bea masuk ekspor industri TPT ke Eropa dapat menjadi 0%. Saat ini, bea masuk ekspor industri TPT sebesar 12%. Sehingga, Kemenperin optimistis terbukanya perjanjian tersebut akan mendorong pangsa pasar tekstil Indonesia di dunia yang saat ini hanya sebesar 1,8%.

 

"(Dengan perdagangan bebas RI-Uni Eropa) ekspor naik sebesar 5-6% di dunia. Ini suatu harapan ke depan," kata Sigit di Akademi Komunitas Industri TPT Surakarta, Solo, Jawa Tengah, Senin (12/3).

 

Sigit menyatakan Indonesia memiliki struktur industri TPT yang kuat untuk mampu bersaing di ranah global. "Artinya pasar di dunia masih sangat terbuka bagi ekspor kami," kata Sigit.

 

Menurut Sigit, perdagangan bebas dengan Uni Eropa penting karena kawasan tersebut memiliki kontribusi paling besar dalam ekspor industri TPT. Menurut Sigit, ekspor ke Eropa mencapai 30% dari total ekspor yang dilakukan selama 2017. "Nilainya US$ 5 miliar ke Eropa," kata Sigit.

 

Jika perdagangan bebas dengan Uni Eropa tak bisa dilaksanakan dalam waktu dekat, Sigit menilai kebijakan early harvest dapat dilakukan. Nantinya, produk tekstil yang diekspor dapat ditukar dengan komoditas lain dari Eropa untuk masuk ke Indonesia. "Apakah kami tukar dengan komoditas otomotif atau yang lainnya supaya bisa masuk ke Eropa," kata dia.

 

Sebelumnya desakan mempercepat perjanjian datang dari Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia (API) meminta pemerintah untuk mempercepat proses negosiasi perjanjian dagang dengan sejumlah negara.

 

Berdasarkan data Bank Indonesia (BI) yang diolah API, total ekspor tekstil Indonesia sepanjang tahun lalu mencapai US$ 11,83 miliar. Negara tujuan ekspor tekstil dalam negeri paling banyak adalah Amerika Serikat (AS) sebesar 32,34%, Uni Eropa 14,97%, dan Jepang 10,08%.

 

Sektetaris Eksekutif API Ernovian Ismy mengatakan API telah meminta agar pemerintah juga membuat perjanjian dagang, setidaknya dengan negara yang selama ini menjadi pasar terbesar produk ekspor Indonesia. Ernovian mengklaim permintaan ini telah disampaikan melalui surat resmi kepada pemerintah.

 

Menurutnya, Indonesia masih kalah cepat jika dibandingkan dengan Vietnam dalam kesepakatan perjanjian dagang. Padahal kualitas tekstil Indonesia sangat kompetitif dengan lebih dari 240 produk Indonesia yang sudah mendunia. Oleh karena itu, API juga meminta ada percepatan dalam negosiasi perjanjian dagang untuk meningkatkan ekspor tahun depan.
