Trade Minister Enggartiasto Lukita said Indonesia would open a tap of imports for US products to respons  of sanctions by the World Trade Organization or the WTO. The United States had previously asked the WTO to impose a Rp.5 trillion sanction on Indonesia.


Import taps that will be opened wide include soybeans, cotton, and beef. According to Enggartiasto, three imported goods are needed domestically.


Chairman of the Indonesian Textile Association (API) Ade Sudrajat said there was no objection to cotton imports from the United States increasing with compensation for Indonesia's garment and textile exports to increase. "This will produce a two-state win-win solution. The point is how to create jobs for the people, "he said in Bandung on Wednesday.


Ade said imported cotton from America supplies 40 percent of domestic needs. "Imports are greater than 45 percent of Brazil, the rest are from Australia and various countries," he said.


The United States officially request to World Trade Organization (WTO) to impose sanctions of US $ 350 million or around Rp. 5 trillion on Indonesia. This American demand is the aftermath of Indonesia's defeat at the WTO appeal session in November 2017.


Menteri Perdagangan Membuka Peluang Impor Kapas



Menteri Perdagangan Enggartiasto Lukita mengatakan Indonesia akan membuka keran impor bagi produk Amerika Serikat untuk menjawab ancaman sanksi Organisasi Perdagangan Dunia atau WTO. Amerika Serikat sebelumnya meminta WTO menjatuhkan sanksi Rp 5 triliun kepada Indonesia.


Keran impor yang akan dibuka lebar antara lain kedelai, kapas, dan menyusul daging sapi. Menurut Enggartiasto, tiga barang impor itu dibutuhkan di dalam negeri.


Ketua Umum Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia (API) Ade Sudrajat mengatakan tidak keberatan impor kapas dari Amerika meningkat dengan kompensasi ekspor garmen dan tekstil Indonesia meningkat. “Ini akan menghasilkan win-win solution dua negara. Intinya bagaimana menciptakan lapangan pekerjaan untuk rakyat,” katanya di Bandung, Rabu.


Ade mengatakan impor kapas dari Amerika memasok 40 persen kebutuhan dalam negeri. “Impor lebih besar itu 45 persen dari Brasil, sisanya dari Australia dan berbagai negara,” ucapnya.


Amerika Serikat resmi meminta Organisasi Perdagangan Dunia atau World Trade Organization (WTO) menjatuhkan sanksi sebesar US$ 350 juta atau sekitar Rp 5 triliun terhadap Indonesia. Permintaan Amerika ini merupakan buntut dari kekalahan Indonesia pada sidang banding WTO pada November 2017.
