Sritex Managing Director: 60% of textile raw materials are still imported PDF Print E-mail

President Director of PT Sri Rejeki Isman Tbk (SRIL) or Sritex Iwan Setiawan Lukminto said that 60% of textile raw materials for industries in Indonesia were still imported. This is because of the lack of availability in the country.


"In Indonesia there are many (imported raw materials), 60% of the portion," said Iwan.


To import textile raw materials. Iwan said, mostly supplied from China.


"Raw materials are imported from China, but China is a maker, massive production," he said.


Raw materials that are still imported, among others, cotton, rayon, to polyester. But for cutton, most are imported from the United States (US).


But that does not mean that the raw material cannot be produced domestically. It's just that the role of the government is needed to issue policies to support the derivative industry in providing raw materials.


"Forever, if we do not want to fix the rules, there is no raw material factory, there is no triger. Indonesia does not have a triger, how does the SME, if the SMEs add a lot of raw materials automatically better in Indonesia," he continued.


For example for rayon and polyester, it can be produced domestically. At present there are already those who produce but the amount is not much.


"Can (produced domestically), especially rayon with polyester. If cotton, Indonesia is lacking. Cutton from America. Indeed we are not a cotton grower in Indonesia, not our climate, there is also a small one," he added.


Dirut Sritex: 60% Bahan Baku Tekstil Masih Impor


Direktur Utama PT Sri Rejeki Isman Tbk (SRIL) atau Sritex Iwan Setiawan Lukminto menyampaikan 60% bahan baku (raw material) tekstil untuk industri di Indonesia masih impor. Hal itu karena minimnya ketersediaan di dalam negeri.


"Di Indonesia banyak (bahan baku impor), 60% porsinya," kata Iwan.


Untuk impor bahan baku tekstil. kata Iwan kebanyakan dipasok dari China.


"(Bahan baku diimpor dari) China, tetep China itu maker, dia masif," sebutnya.


Bahan baku yang masih diimpor, di antaranya, cutton, rayon, hingga poliester. Namun untuk cutton, paling banyak diimpor dari Amerika Serikat (AS).


Tapi bukan berarti bahan baku tersebut tidak bisa diproduksi di dalam negeri. Hanya saja butuh peran pemerintah untuk mengeluarkan kebijakan dalam mendukung industri turunan dalam menyediakan bahan baku.


"Selamanya, jika kita tidak mau membenahi aturan ya nggak ada pabrik raw material, nggak ada trigernya kok. Indonesia kan nggak ada triger, UKMnya bagaimana, kalau UKMnya tambah banyak kan raw material kan otomatis lebih baik di Indonesia," lanjutnya.


Misalnya untuk rayon dan poliester, itu bisa diproduksi di dalam negeri. Saat ini pun sudah ada yang memproduksi tapi jumlahnya tidak banyak.


"Bisa (diproduksi di dalam negeri), terutama rayon sama poliester. Kalau cutton, Indonesia memang kurang. Cutton dari Amerika. Memang kita bukan cutton grower di Indonesia, bukan iklimnya kita, ada pun kecil," tambahnya.
