Government Maintains Import Duty Import Facility in US PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, 01 August 2018

The Ministry of Trade declared a working visit of the Indonesian government to the United States (US) to maintain the Indonesian Generalized Systems of Preference (GSP) products received support from several US businessmen and parliaments.


Head of the Trade Ministry's Agency for Trade Assessment and Development (BPPP) Kasan Muhri said Indonesia had the support of US importers.


Indonesia has given an opinion to USTR Ambassador Robert Lightizer on July 27, 2018. Trade Minister Enggartiasto Lukita said in the meeting it has explained to Lighthizer several issues related to trade barriers that are of concern to Indonesia.


For example, the process of reviewing Indonesia as the recipient country of the GSP scheme and the exception for Indonesia for imposing increases in tariffs on imports of US steel and aluminum products.


He said GSP for Indonesia was not only intended for industrial interests in Indonesia, but also for US industry interests.


Indonesia still needs GSP to improve its product competitiveness in the US market. Indonesian products exported using GSP facilities include rubber, car tires, vehicle wiring equipment, gold, fatty acids, metal jewelry, aluminum, gloves, musical instruments, loudspeakers, keyboards and batteries.


In 2017, Indonesian products using the GSP scheme are worth US $ 1.9 billion. This figure is apparently still far below other GSP recipient countries such as India for US $ 5.6 billion; Thailand US $ 4.2 billion; and Brazil US $ 2.5 billion.


In a meeting on the GSP facility, in addition to the delegation from several ministries, the Indonesian delegation consisted of the Indonesian Palm Oil Entrepreneurs Association (GAPKI), the Indonesian Association of Biofuel Producers (APROBI), the Indonesian Textile Association (API) Association of Exporters of Fresh Fruits and Vegetable Indonesia (ASEIBSSINDO), and Indonesian Exporter Companies Association (GPEI) / Indonesian Importers Association (GINSI).


Meanwhile, businessman  from Indonesia who participated were car tire producers, business actors from the palm oil industry, agricultural and horticultural products, fishery, steel, aluminum, textiles and textile products, food and beverages, dairy products, and consumer goods .



Pemerintah Pertahankan Fasilitas Bea Masuk Impor di US



Kementerian Perdagangan menyatakan kunjungan kerja pemerintah RI ke Amerika Serikat (AS) untuk mempertahankan fasilitas bea masuk impor (Generalized Systems of Preference/GSP) produk Indonesia mendapat dukungan dari beberapa pengusaha dan parlemen AS.


Kepala Badan Pengkajian dan Pengembangan Perdagangan (BPPP) Kementerian Perdagangan Kasan Muhri menyatakan Indonesia mendapatkan dukungan dari pengusaha importir AS.


Indonesia telah memberikan pendapat kepada Duta Besar USTR Robert Lightizer pada 27 Juli 2018. Menteri Perdagangan Enggartiasto Lukita mengatakan dalam pertemuan itu pihaknya telah memaparkan kepada Lighthizer beberapa isu terkait hambatan perdagangan yang menjadi perhatian Indonesia.


Contohnya, proses peninjauan ulang terhadap Indonesia sebagai negara penerima skema GSP dan pengecualian bagi Indonesia atas pengenaan kenaikan tarif impor produk besi baja dan aluminium AS.


Dia mengatakan GSP untuk Indonesia sebetulnya tak hanya ditujukan untuk kepentingan industri di Indonesia, tetapi juga juga untuk kepentingan industri AS.


Indonesia masih memerlukan GSP untuk meningkatkan daya saing produk di pasar AS. Produk-produk Indonesia yang selama ini diekspor dengan memanfaatkan fasilitas GSP antara lain karet, ban mobil, perlengkapan perkabelan kendaraan, emas, asam lemak, perhiasan logam, aluminium, sarung tangan, alat musik, pengeras suara, keyboard, dan baterai.


Pada 2017, produk Indonesia yang menggunakan skema GSP bernilai US$ 1,9 miliar. Angka ini rupanya masih jauh di bawah negara-negara penerima GSP lainnya seperti India sebesar US$ 5,6 miliar; Thailand US$ 4,2 miliar; dan Brasil US$ 2,5 miliar.


Dalam pertemuan pembahasan tentang fasilitas GSP,  selain dihadiri oleh  delegasi dari sejumlah kementerian, ikut pula di antaranya delegasi bisnis dari Indonesia yang terdiri dari Gabungan Pengusaha Kelapa Sawit Indonesia (GAPKI), Asosiasi Produsen Biofuel Indonesia (APROBI), Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia (API), Asosiasi Eksportir Buah dan Sayur Segar Indonesia (ASEIBSSINDO), dan Gabungan Perusahaan Eksportir Indonesia (GPEI)/Gabungan Importir Nasional Indonesia (GINSI).


Sementara itu, pelaku usaha dari Indonesia yang turut serta antara lain produsen ban mobil, pelaku usaha dari industri minyak kelapa sawit, produk pertanian dan hortikultura, perikanan, baja, aluminium, tekstil dan produk tekstil, makanan dan minuman, produk susu, serta consumer goods.
