Minister of Industry Airlangga Hartarto and Norwegian Fisheries Minister Per Sandberg agreed to accelerate the finalization of the Indonesia-European Free Trade Association Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (Indonesia-EFTA CEPA).


Airlangga Hartarto said the effort is expected to expand the export market for industrial products of both parties as well as to complement each other and equally beneficial.


"The cooperation agreement will be held in May in Jakarta," he said.


He said the Norwegians want the ease of importing raw of milk to Indonesia. "In addition, Norway asked for some fishery products such as salmon and cod fish to enter the Indonesian market at low or zero rates," he said.


The proposal, Airlangga offers that Indonesia is also given easy access to the export of national industrial products to Norway, especially for types of textiles, clothing, and shoes with low import tariffs or zero percent.


The two sides also discussed Indonesia's problems related to the ban on crude palm oil (CPO) products into the European market. For information, the EU Parliament will abolish the use of CPO, including from Indonesia, in 2021.


Meanwhile, the Director General for International Industry's Resilience and Development (KPAII) I Gusti Putu Suryawirawan stated that the Ministry of Industry is focusing on encouraging market expansion for industrial products including export-oriented labor-intensive sectors.



Putu hopes, with the strengthening of economic cooperation with Norway, can also open the market access market of Indonesian industrial products to Scandinavian countries.


In 2017, Indonesia's exports to EFTA countries reached US $ 1.3 billion, while imports from these four countries amounted to US $ 1.1 billion. Thus, Indonesia's trade balance with EFTA still records a surplus of approximately US $ 200 million.EFTA is an alternative trading bloc for European countries not joining the EU. EFTA formed since 1960 is only composed of four countries namely, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein.




Mentri Perindustrian Minta Norwegia Permudah Ekspor Tekstil RI



Menteri Perindustrian Airlangga Hartarto dan Menteri Perikanan Norwegia Per Sandberg‎ sepakat untuk mempercepat finalisasi Indonesia-European Free Trade Association Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (Indonesia-EFTA CEPA).


Airlangga Hartarto mengungkapkan, ‎upaya ini diharapkan bisa memperluas pasar ekspor bagi produk industri kedua belah pihak sekaligus untuk saling melengkapi dan sama-sama menguntungkan.


"Rencananya perundingan kerja sama itu selanjutnya akan dilakukan pada bulan Mei di Jakarta," ujar dia.


Dia mengatakan, pihak Norwegia ingin kemudahan impor bahan baku susu ke Indonesia. “Selain itu, Norwegia meminta beberapa produk perikanan seperti salmon dan ikan cod bisa masuk ke pasar Indonesia dengan tarif rendah atau nol,” kata dia.


Adanya usulan itu, Airlangga menawarkan agar Indonesia juga diberi kemudahan dalam akses ekspor produk industri nasional ke Norwegia terutama untuk jenis tekstil, pakaian, dan sepatu dengan tarif bea masuk rendah atau nol persen.


Kedua belah pihak juga membahas persoalan yang dialami Indonesia terkait pelarangan produk minyak sawit mentah atau crude palm oil (CPO) masuk ke pasar Eropa. Untuk diketahui, Parlemen Uni Eropa akan menghapus penggunaan CPO, termasuk dari Indonesia, pada tahun 2021.

Sementara itu, Dirjen Ketahanan dan Pengembangan Akses Industri Internasional (KPAII) Kemenperin I Gusti Putu Suryawirawan menyatakan, Kemenperin fokus mendorong perluasan pasar bagi produk industri yang termasuk sektor padat karya berorientasi ekspor.

Putu berharap, dengan penguatan kerja sama ekonomi dengan Norwegia, dapat membuka pula akses pasar ekspor produk industri Indonesia ke negara-negara Skandinavia.

Pada 2017, ekspor Indonesia ke negara-negara EFTA mencapai US$ 1,3 miliar, sementara impor dari empat negara tersebut sebesar US$ 1,1 miliar. Sehingga, neraca perdagangan Indonesia dengan EFTA masih mencatatkan surplus kurang lebih senilai US$ 200 juta.‎EFTA merupakan sebuah blok dagang alternatif bagi negara-negara Eropa yang tidak bergabung dalam Uni Eropa. EFTA yang dibentuk sejak 1960 ini hanya beranggotakan empat negara yaitu, Swiss, Norwegia, Islandia, dan Liechtenstein.
