US Threatens Trade War with Indonesia, Kemendag Ready to Send Teams PDF Print E-mail

The United States is now beginning to threaten and potentially start a trade war with Indonesia. This is in line with the policy of President of the United States Donald Trump who will revoke some of the special rates given to Indonesia, such as by revoking the Generalization System of Preferences (GSP) of Indonesian textile products.


In response, Director General of Foreign Trade of the Ministry of Trade Oke Nurwan said the government immediately took quick steps to anticipate the possibility of a trade war. One step is to send a team that consists of cross-Ministry to the United States to negotiate.


"We will send the Team to the US for negotiations so that our GSP facilities will be maintained," he said when met at the Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs, Jakarta, Monday (9/7/2018).


The plan, the team will depart at the end of July 2018. Only, he has not been able to confirm who and what content will be negotiated later.


"The possibility of the end of July is leaving, but the others I have not been able to convey the relation that in the GSP to be reviewed that we have decided to send Tim," he explained.


But certainly, the team will contain from across the main Ministries whose products are affected from these threats. Like the Ministry of Agriculture where most of the agricultural products are threatened will be revoked GSP.


Meanwhile on a different occasion, Vice Presidential Team Leader Sofjan Wanandi confirmed if the government would soon send a negotiating team to the United States. Later the team will be led by the Ministry of Commerce as the spearhead.


"The Ministry of Commerce and the Department of Foreign Affairs are the spearhead to solve it," he said.


While waiting for further Sofjan, the government has also sent the Ambassador to the United States. The goal is to persuade the United States government to cancel the policy.



AS Ancam Perang Dagang dengan Indonesia, Kemendag Siap Kirim Tim


Amerika Serikat kini mulai mengancam dan berpotensi memulai perang dagang dengan Indonesia. Hal tersebut seiring dengan kebijakan Presiden Amerika Serikat Donald Trump yang akan mencabut beberapa tarif khusus yang diberikan kepada Indonesia, diantaranya dengan mencabut Generalisasi System' of Preferences (GSP) produk tekstil Indonesia.


Menanggapi hal tersebut, Direktur Jenderal Perdagangan Luar Negeri Kementerian Perdagangan (Kemendag) Oke Nurwan mengatakan, pemerintah segera melakukan langkah cepat untuk mengantisipasi kemungkinan terjadinya perang dagang. Salah satu langkahnya adalah dengan mengirim tim yang terdiri dari lintas Kementerian ke Amerika Serikat untuk bernegosiasi.


"Nantilah itu kan dikaitkan ya dengan GSP kita direview. Ya kita akan kirim Tim ke AS untuk negosiasi supaya fasilitas GSP kita tetap dipertahankan," ujarnya saat ditemui di Kantor Kementerian Koordinator bidang Perekonomian, Jakarta, Senin (9/7/2018).


Rencanannya, tim tersebut akan berangkat pada akhir Juli 2018. Hanya saja, dirinya belum bisa memastikan siapa saja dan apa isi yang akan di negosiasikan nantinya.


"Kemungkinan akhir Juli berangkatnya. Tapi yang lain saya belum bisa sampaikan yang kaitannya yang di GSP yang akan di-review itu kita sudah memutuskan akan kirim Tim," jelasnya.


Namun yang pasti, tim tersebut akan berisikan dari lintas Kementerian utamanya yang produknya terdampak dari ancaman tersebut. Seperti Kementerian Pertanian yang mana sebagian besar produk pertanian lah yang diancam akan dicabut GSP-nya.


Sementara itu dalam kesempatan yang berbeda, Ketua Tim Ahli Wakil Presiden Sofjan Wanandi membenarkan jika pemerintah akan segera mengirim tim negosiasi ke Amerika Serikat. Nantinya Tim tersebut akan di pimpin oleh Kementerian Perdagangan sebagai ujung tombaknya.


"Kementerian Perdagangan dan Departemen Luar Negeri yang menjadi ujung tombaknya untuk menyelesaikannya," ucapnya.


Sambil menunggu lanjut Sofjan, pemerintah juga sudah mengirim Duta Besar ke Amerika Serikat. Tujuannya untuk membujuk pemerintah Amerika Serikat untuk membatalkan kebijakan tersebut.
