The Ministry of Industry also encourages the completion of cooperation agreement between Indonesia-European Free Trade Association Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (Indonesia-EFTA CEPA). This effort is expected to expand the export market for industrial products both parties to complement each other and equally profitable.

 

"The cooperation agreement will be held in May in Jakarta," said Minister of Industry RI Airlangga Hartarto after meeting Norwegian Minister of Fisheries Per Sandberg with Norwegian Ambassador to Indonesia Vegard Kaale at the Ministry of Industry.

 

Minister of Industry and Minister of Fisheries of Norway agreed to accelerate the finalization of Indonesia-EFTA CEPA as a comprehensive economic framework. 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.

 

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

 

The proposal, the Minister of Industry 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. "Currently, products from Indonesia are entering Europe is still subject to tariffs of 10 to 20 percent," he said.

 

The two ministers also discussed about 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 Access 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.

 

"Hence Menperin requested that equally mutual benefit. If Norway asks for the convenience of their products to enter here, Minister of Industry also requested that the products from Indonesia are not inhibited in Norway, "he explained.

 

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 USD1.3 billion, while imports from these four countries amounted to USD1.1 billion. Thus, Indonesia's trade balance with EFTA still records a surplus of approximately USD200 million

 

RI-Norwegia Sepakat Memperluas Pasar Ekspor Bagi Produk Industri

 

Kementerian Perindustrian turut mendorong penyelesaian perjanjian kerja sama Indonesia-European Free Trade Association Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (Indonesia-EFTA CEPA). 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,” kata Menteri Perindustrian RI Airlangga Hartarto seusai bertemu dengan Menteri Perikanan Norwegia Per Sandberg bersama Duta Besar Norwegia untuk Indonesia Vegard Kaale di Kementerian Perindustrian.

 

Menperin RI dan Menteri Perikanan Norwegia sepakat untuk mempercepat finalisasi Indonesia-EFTA CEPA sebagai kerangka kerja sama ekonomi yang komprehensif. 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.

 

Dalam pertemuan tersebut, Menperin menyampaikan, pihak Norwegia ingin kemudahan impor bahan baku susu mereka ke Indonesia. “Selain itu, Norwegia meminta beberapa produk perikanan seperti salmon dan ikan cod bisa masuk ke pasar Indonesia dengan tarif rendah atau nol,” ujarnya.

 

Adanya usulan itu, Menperin 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. “Saat ini, produk-produk dari Indonesia tersebut masuk ke Eropa masih kena tarif 10 hingga 20 persen,” ungkapnya.

 

Kedua menteri juga membahas mengenai 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) I Gusti Putu Suryawirawan menyatakan, Kemenperin fokus mendorong perluasan pasar bagi produk industri yang termasuk sektor padat karya berorientasi ekspor.

 

“Makanya Menperin meminta agar sama-sama saling menguntungkan. Apabila Norwegia meminta kemudahan produk mereka bisa masuk ke sini, Menperin juga meminta agar produk dari Indonesia tidak dihambat di Norwegia,” paparnya.

 

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

 

Pada tahun 2017, ekspor Indonesia ke negara-negara EFTA mencapai USD1,3 miliar, sementara impor dari empat negara tersebut sebesar USD1,1 miliar. Sehingga, neraca perdagangan Indonesia dengan EFTA masih mencatatkan surplus kurang lebih senilai USD200 juta
