Increased imports of textile raw materials and textile products unsettled domestic raw material producers. Performance of the producers is threatened because of the need for raw materials of textile product exports, including garments using more imported products and leaving local cloth.

 

Secretary General of Filament Indonesia Filament Association (APSyFI) Redma Gita Wirawasta said sales in the upstream sector in May to June declined by 15% as fabric manufacturers did not dare to take raw materials.

 

Currently, woven and knitted fabric manufacturers in the country are still holding production because they see a lot of imported finished cloth piling up in bonded logistic center (PLB).

 

"The imported 60% is fabric [intermediate product] The remaining 40% is imported garment, yarn and fiber so that fabric, yarn and fiber producers are difficult to sell in the domestic market," Redma said as confirmed by Bisnis on Thursday (28/6). ).

 

APSyFI has expressed concern in writing to the Minister of Trade and related ministries since before Eid. But until now there has been no answer to the complaint.

 

Redma said that the current export increase in the textile and knit goods sector is not significant with the value of imports. Even the utility level of fabric manufacturers is claimed to be still below 50%. All imported raw materials to the Indonesian market can actually be supplied by local producers.

 

Based on the Central Bureau of Statistics (BPS) data, total exports of textile and textile products in the first quarter of 2018 increased by 7.9%, while the same imports of commodities were quite high up to 19.5%.

 

"The government must immediately fix its trade policy because so far it is known to be very proimporter. The policy in PLB and Permendag 64/2017 is one of them, "he said.

 

Meanwhile, Chairman of Indonesian Textile Association Ade Sudrajat said imports of raw materials including garments and textiles are usually determined by buyers in the global market.

 

In the agreement, the importing country will supply the necessary commodities provided that the raw material must be taken from a particular country or a particular company. This has been agreed between the importing countries and the producers of raw materials abroad.

 

Ade said overseas buyers have provided a condition for the resulting product in accordance with the wishes of the buyer.

 

"They already have special deal, there is agreement included for the quality that has met the standard," said Ade.

 

In addition, domestic raw materials products are difficult to use by garment manufacturers. The reason it will increase tax costs. In contrast, imported products intended for export, are not subject to additional charges including taxes.

 

He explained that the government has been wrong to provide protection for upstream products. Stakeholders are expected to find a solution not to harm the upstream and downstream industries.

 

"If for example, the upstream industry is protected, the producers will sell more expensive, so domestic products will increase, because imports of cloth will be cheaper," he said.

 

Produsen Bahan Baku Keluhkan Impor

 

 

Peningkatan impor bahan baku tekstil dan produk tektil meresahkan produsen bahan baku dalam negeri. Performa produsen terancam karena kebutuhan bahan baku ekspor produk tekstil, termasuk garmen lebih banyak menggunakan produk impor dan meninggalkan kain lokal.

 

Sekretaris Jenderal Asosiasi Produsen Serat dan Benang Filament Indonesia (APSyFI) Redma Gita Wirawasta mengatakan penjualan di sektor hulu pada Mei hingga Juni menurun hingga 15% karena produsen kain tidak berani mengambil bahan baku.

 

Saat ini produsen kain tenun dan rajutan di dalam negeri masih menahan produksi karena melihat banyaknya kain jadi impor menumpuk di pusat logistik berikat (PLB).

 

"Sebanyak 60% yang diimpor merupakan kain [produk antara]. Sisanya 40% yang diimpor merupakan pakaian jadi, benang dan serat sehingga produsen kain, benang dan serat sulit menjual di pasar domestik," kata Redma saat dikonfirmasi Bisnis, Kamis (28/6).

 

APSyFI sudah menyampaikan keresahan secara tertulis kepada Menteri Perdagangan dan kementerian terkait sejak sebelum lebaran. Namun hingga kini belum ada jawaban atas keluhan tersebut.

 

Redma menilai adanya kenaikan ekspor saat ini di sektor tekstil dan barang rajutan tidak signifikan dengan nilai impor yang ada. Bahkan tingkat utilitas produsen kain diklaim masih di bawah 50%. Seluruh bahan baku impor yang meluber ke pasar Indonesia sejatinya dapat dipasok oleh produsen lokal.

 

Berdasarkan catatan Badan Pusat Statistik (BPS), total ekspor di sektor tekstil dan produk tekstil pada kuartal I 2018 naik 7,9%, sedangkan impor komoditas yang sama cukup tinggi hingga 19,5%.

 

“Pemerintah harus segera membenahi kebijakan perdagangannya karena selama ini memang dikenal sangat proimportir. Kebijakan di PLB dan Permendag 64/2017 adalah salah satunya,” ujarnya.

 

Sementara itu, Ketua Umum Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia Ade Sudrajat mengatakan impor bahan baku termasuk garmen dan tekstil biasanya telah ditentukan oleh pembeli di pasar global.

 

Dalam kesepakatannya, negara pengimpor akan memasok komoditas yang diperlukan dengan syarat bahan baku harus diambil dari negara tertentu atau perusahaan tertentu. Hal ini sudah disepakati antara negara pengimpor dengan produsen bahan baku di luar negeri.

 

 

Ade menuturkan para pembeli luar negeri sudah memberikan syarat agar produk yang dihasilkan sesuai dengan keinginan para pemesan.

 

"Mereka sudah memiliki deal khusus. Ada kesepakatan termasuk untuk kualitas yang sudah memenuhi standar," kata Ade.

 

Di samping itu, produk bahan baku dari dalam negeri sulit digunakan oleh produsen garmen. Pasalnya hal itu akan menambah biaya pajak. Sebaliknya, produk impor yang ditujukan untuk ekspor, tidak dikenai biaya tambahan termasuk pajak.

 

Dia menjelaskan selama ini pemerintah keliru untuk memberikan proteksi pada produk hulu. Pemangku kebijakan diharapkan dapat mencari solusi untuk tidak merugikan industri hulu dan hilir.

 

"Kalau misalnya industri hulu diproteksi maka produsen akan jual lebih mahal sehingga produk dalam negeri ikut naik. Kenaikan impor terjadi karena impor kain lebih murah," katanya.
