President of Indonesia Joko Widodo (Jokowi) Tuesday afternoon directly release the export of Indonesian products to the United States (US). The products are exported from textile products to footwear products.


What's more special in direct exports (direct call) is by using a giant ship the size of 10 thousand TEUS from CMA CGM.


"With large ships we want to show that our economy stays well, tough, keep moving, so I came to Tanjung Priok in order to release exports to the United States," said Jokowi in Tanjung Priok.


Jokowi also appreciate what is done by PT Pelindo II (Persero) by continuing to bring jumbo-size ships. CMA CGM ships with sizes ranging from 8,000 TEUS to 10 thousand TEUS is now anchored in Priok for one week.


By using large ships in this direct call, Jokowi claims export costs can be cheaper. "I asked to the CEO of Pelindo II if using this large ship can save USD 300 per container," said Jokowi.


He said, what is done in the Port of Tanjung Priok is part of the government's plan to make Indonesia as a world trade route. That way, the Indonesian economy will continue to grow and logistics costs more efficiently.


Jokowi Lepas Ekspor Tekstil hingga Alas Kaki RI ke AS


Presiden RI Joko Widodo (Jokowi) Selasa sore secara langsung melepas ekspor produk Indonesia ke Amerika Serikat (AS). Produk-produk yang diekspor mulai dari produk tekstil hingga produk alas kaki.


Yang lebih spesial dalam ekspor langsung (direct call) ini adalah dengan menggunakan kapal raksasa ukuran 10 ribu TEUS dari CMA CGM.


"Dengan kapal besa kita ingin tunjukkan bahwa ekonomi kita tetap jalan dengan baik, tangguh, terus bergerak. Makanya saya datang ke Tanjung Priok dalam rangka pelepasan ekspor ke Amerika Serikat," kata Jokowi di Tanjung Priok.


Jokowi juga mengapresiasi apa yang dilakukan PT Pelindo II (Persero) dengan terus mendatangkan kapal-kapal ukuran jumbo. Kapal CMA CGM dengan ukuran mulai dari 8.000 TEUS hingga 10 ribu TEUS ini kini sudah berlabuh di Priok selama satu minggu sekali.


Dengan menggunakan kapal-kapal besar dalam melakukan direct call ini, Jokowi klaim biaya ekspor bisa lebih murah. "Tadi saya tanya ke Dirut Pelindo II kalau menggunakan kapal besar ini bisa hemat USD 300 per kontainer," tegas Jokowi.


Dia menuturkan, apa yang dilakukan di Pelabuhan Tanjung Priok ini menjadi bagian dari rencana pemerintah menjadikan Indonesia sebagai jalur perdagangan dunia. Dengan begitu, ekonomi Indonesia akan terus tumbuh dan biaya logistik lebih efisien.
