Minister of Trade: Textile Exports Can Recover Trade Balance PDF Print E-mail

Friday, 21 September 2018

The Minister of Trade Enggartiasto Lukita said Indonesia's non-oil and gas trade balance in August 2018 recorded a surplus amid a trade balance that was still experiencing deificits.

 

For the remainder of this year, Enggar stressed the importance of restoring export constraints for mainstay commodities such as coal and crude palm oil (CPO) while continuing to boost exports of manufacturing industries.

 

Yes, what is certain is that we originally dropped because coal traders cannot export, we know that CPO is subject to high import duties in several countries, then there is the imposition of DMO [obligation to supply domestic coal needs]. This was restored, while the manufacturing industry was raised, "he explained

 

One manufacturing industry export commodity that he thinks is very likely to increase is textiles and textile products (TPT), where an increase in exports to the United States (US) and Australia, he said, can reach 20-25%.

 

"From a visit to the US, we will absorb cotton from the US but its textile exports can also increase significantly, being calculated, it can be around 20-25%," he said.

 

In addition, the signing of the Indonesia-Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IA CEPA) which is scheduled for November according to him can also increase the value of textile exports with the same amount.

 

Previously, the Indonesian Textile Association (API) targeted export growth this year to reach 8% or worth US $ 13.5 billion.

 

As for 2025, API targets textile exports to reach US $ 30 billion.

 

"In 2020 we hope the EU CEPA agreement [the Indonesia-EU Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement] has been ratified, in which Europe is the main market for our textiles with a value of almost more than US $ 800 billion," said API General Chairman, Ade Sudradjat.

 

"Indonesia only has a market share of around 2%. If we can increase it to only 5%, it means that it has more than US $ 30 billion," he added.

 

 

 

Mendag: Ekspor Tekstil Bisa Pulihkan Neraca DagangMendag: Ekspor Tekstil Bisa Pulihkan Neraca Dagang

 

 

Menteri Perdagangan Enggartiasto Lukita mengatakan neraca perdagangan non-migas RI bulan Agustus 2018 mencatatkan surplus di tengah neraca perdagangan yang masih mengalami deifisit.

 

Untuk sisa tahun ini, Enggar menekankan pentingnya memulihkan kendala/hambatan ekspor bagi komoditas andalan seperti batu bara dan minyak sawit mentah (crude palm oil/CPO) sembari terus menggenjot ekspor hasil industri manufaktur.

 

Ya yang pasti semula kita turun karena trader batu bara tidak boleh ekspor, kita tahu CPO dikenakan bea masuk yang tinggi di beberapa negara, kemudian ada pengenaan DMO [kewajiban pasok kebutuhan batu bara dalam negeri]. Ini dipulihkan, sambil industri manufakturnya dinaikkan," jelasnya

 

Satu komoditas ekspor industri manufaktur yang menurutnya sangat mungkin meningkat adalah tekstil dan produk tekstil (TPT), di mana peningkatan ekspor ke Amerika Serikat (AS) dan Australia disebutnya dapat mencapai 20-25%.

 

"Dari kunjungan ke AS, kita akan menyerap kapas dari AS tapi ekspor TPT-nya juga dapat meningkat cukup signifikan, sedang dihitung, bisa sekitar 20-25%," ujarnya.

 

Selain itu, penandatanganan Perjanjian Kemitraan Ekonomi Komprehensif Indonesia-Australia (IA CEPA) yang dijadwalkan pada November nanti menurutnya juga dapat meningkatkan nilai ekspor TPT dengan besaran yang sama.

 

Sebelumnya, Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia (API) menargetkan pertumbuhan ekspor di tahun ini mencapai 8% atau senilai US$ 13,5 miliar.

 

Adapun pada 2025, API menargetkan ekspor tektil dapat mencapai US$ 30 miliar.

 

"Di 2020 kita harapkan perjanjian EU CEPA [Perjanjian Kemitraan Ekonomi Komprehensif Indonesia-Uni Eropa] sudah diratifikasi, di mana Eropa adalah pasar utama tekstil kita dengan nilai hampir lebih dari US$ 800 miliar," ujar Ketua Umum API, Ade Sudradjat.

 

 

"Indonesia baru menguasai pangsa pasar di sana kurang lebih 2%. Kalau kita bisa naikkan jadi 5% saja, artinya sudah lebih dari US$ 30 miliar," imbuhnya.
