Indonesia - US Tense, Textile Industry Entrepreneurs Worry PDF Print E-mail

The perpetrators of the textile industry in DIY admitted wary of the trade war between China and the United States which is now beginning to widen to other countries, especially Indonesia. Especially when US President Donald Trump also declared his intention to dump the products of Indonesia after the United States realized the product of the United States is actually a deficit in trade cooperation between the two countries.

 

So far, textile is one of the largest export commodities from Indonesia to the United States. If later there is protection from the United States government of products from Indonesia, then it will have a big impact on the textile climate in Indonesia, and also to DIY.

 

Chairman of the Board of Indonesian Textile Association (API) DIY, Iwan Santosa admitted the perpetrators of the textile industry in Yogyakarta will soon coordinate with the latest statement from the President of the United States. The perpetrators of the textile industry must prepare a step if it really will later the president of the United States to implement protection.

 

"The biggest foreign exchange textile industry in DIY and the United States has become the biggest textile export destination country from Yogyakarta," he said, Monday (16/7).

 

Iwan said, his party asked the Indonesian government to be careful in diplomacy against the United States. Do not let the government's decision will actually be a boomerang for the textile industry in the country. The government must be keen to exploit negotiation opportunities so that it can maintain the stability of existing textile exports.

 

In addition, to anticipate the possibility of protection policies from the United States government, the perpetrators of the textile industry in Yogyakarta should try to recalculate the domestic market conditions in Indonesia. Therefore, the potential of the domestic market has not been maximized, and actually used from other countries, especially China.

 

"We are still counting on the potential of this domestic market, but we should try our best to shift the target market so that our dependence on the United States will decrease," he added.

 

Targeting the domestic market including the ASEAN region is indeed an alternative. However, so far, textile export facilities from DIY are still constrained by infrastructure. Because, all this time to send goods from DIY abroad have to go through port either air or sea from other region.

 

Of course, it is able to increase the shipping cost of their export commodities. They hope that the new airport will soon be realized and there are cargo facilities that are far more adequate than those at Adisutjipto Airport. If there is such thing then he sure will facilitate the productivity of textiles in DIY.

 

"Textile raw materials mostly come from overseas, such as chemicals and cotton," he said, adding that 100 percent of the capacity of cotton is 100 percent from abroad and if it can be sent directly to DIY, then how much the cost can be cut.

 

Indonesia - AS Tegang, Pelaku Industri Tekstil Was-was

 

 

Para pelaku industri tekstil di DIY mengaku was-was dengan perang dagang antara China dan Amerika Serikat yang kini mulai melebar ke negara lain, terutama Indonesia. Terlebih ketika Presiden Amerika Serikat Donald Trump juga menyatakan niatnya untuk melakukan dumping terhadap produk-produk dari Indonesia setelah Amerika Serikat menyadari produk Amerika Serikat justru defisit dalam kerjasama dagang antar kedua negara.

 

Selama ini, tekstil merupakan salah satu komoditas ekspor terbanyak dari Indonesia ke Amerika Serikat. Jika nanti ada proteksi dari pemerintah Amerika Serikat terhadap produk-produk dari Indonesia, maka hal tersebut akan berimbas cukup besar terhadap iklim tekstil di Indonesia, dan juga ke DIY.

 

Ketua Badan Pengurus Asosiasi Tekstil Indonesia (API) DIY, Iwan Santosa mengaku para pelaku industri tekstil di DIY akan segera melakukan koordinasi terkait dengan pernyataan terbaru dari Presiden Amerika Serikat. Para pelaku industri tekstil harus menyiapkan langkah jika memang benar-benar nanti presiden Amerika Serikat tersebut melaksanakan proteksi.

 

"Tekstil penyumbang devisa terbanyak di DIY dan selama ini Amerika Serikat menjadi negara tujuan eksport tekstil terbesar dari DIY. Kalau Presiden sana (Amerika Serikat) melakukan proteksi, maka tentu kita akan semakin terpuruk,"tuturnya, Senin (16/7).

 

Iwan mengungkapkan, piihaknya meminta kepada pemerintah Indonesia untuk berhati-hati dalam melakukan diplomasi terhadap Amerika Serikat. Jangan sampai nanti keputusan pemerintah justru akan menjadi bumerang bagi industri tekstil di tanah air. Pemerintah harus jeli memanfaatkan peluang negosiasi agar tetapi bisa menjaga kestabilan ekspor tekstil yang ada.

 

Selain itu, untuk mengantisipasi kemungkinan adanya kebijakan proteksi dari pemerintah Amerika Serikat, para pelaku industri tekstil di DIY harus mencoba menghitung ulang terhadap kondisi pasar domestik yang ada di Indonesia. Sebab, potensi pasar domestik selama ini memang belum tergarap maksimal, dan justru dimanfaatkan dari negara lain, terutama China.

 

"Kita masih hitung-hitungan terhadap potensi pasar domestik ini. Kita memang harus mencoba berusaha keras mengalihkan target pasar agar ketergantungan terhadap Amerika Serikat bisa berkurang,"tambahnya.

 

Membidik pasar domestik termasuk kawasan ASEAN memang menjadi alternatif. Hanya saja, selama ini fasilitas ekspor tekstil dari DIY memang masih terkendala dengan infrastruktur. Sebab, selama ini untuk mengirimkan barang dari DIY ke luar negeri harus melalui pelabuhan baik udara ataupun laut dari daerah lain.

 

Tentunya, hal tersebut mampu menambah ongkos pengiriman dari komoditas-komoditas ekspor mereka. Mereka berharap agar bandara baru nanti segera terealisasi dan ada fasilitas kargo yang jauh lebih memadai dibanding dengan yang ada di Bandara Adisutjipto. Jika sudah ada hal tersebut maka ia yakin akan memperlancar produktifitas tekstil di DIY.

 

"Bahan baku tekstil sebagian besar berasal dari luar negeri. Seperti bahan kimia dan juga kapas. Kapas justru 100 persen dari luar negeri. Kalau langsung bisa dikirim ke DIY, maka berapa besar ongkos yang bisa dipangkas,"tambahnya.
