Minister of Trade is optimistic about the results of the Year-End GSP review PDF Print E-mail

Minister of Trade Enggartiasto Lukita is optimistic about the results of a special review of tariffs for Indonesian export goods or Generalized System Preferences (GSP).


Previously Indonesia had met with the United States (US) to clarify US plans to revoke GSP for Indonesia. Indonesia requested that the US not revoke GSP facilities given to Indonesia.


"In November or at the end of the year there will be an announcement (GSP results), it seems that at this time there are not too many (demands)," said Enggar after attending the United States (U.S.) Indonesia Investment Summit.


Indonesia has changed a number of rules that are considered hindering for the US. In addition, Indonesia is also cooperative in opening imports for US products.


However, it is considered necessary to have reciprocity. Enggar gave an example, when Indonesia imported cotton, the US also had to import textiles from Indonesia.


"We as a good partner we show, we import cotton, they also have to import textiles," explained Enggar.


The GSP revocation is considered Enggar will press the industry in the US. Because Indonesian products are the main supporting material in the industry in the US.


Enggar said that Indonesian and US products are complementary. It can also be used as a driver to increase Indonesia's trade with the US.


Diumumkan akhir tahun, Mendag optimistis dengan hasil peninjauan GSP


Menteri Perdagangan Enggartiasto Lukita optimistis terhadap hasil peninjauan ulang tarif khusus untuk barang ekspor Indonesia atau Generalized System Preferences (GSP).


Sebelumnya Indonesia telah menemui Amerika Serikat (AS) untuk mengklarifikasi rencana AS mencabut GSP bagi Indonesia. Indonesia meminta agar pihak AS tidak mencabut fasilitas GSP yang diberikan kepada Indonesia.


“November atau akhir tahun akan ada pengumuman (hasil GSP), rasanya saat ini sudah tidak terlalu banyak (tuntutan)," ujar Enggar usai menghadiri United States (U.S.) Indonesia Investment Summit.


Indonesia telah mengubah beberapa aturan yang dianggap menghambat bagi AS. Selain itu, Indonesia juga bersifat kooperatif dalam membuka impor bagi produk AS.


Namun, hal tersebut dinilai perlu ada timbal balik. Enggar mencontohkan, ketika Indonesia mengimpor kapas, maka AS juga harus mengimpor tekstil dari Indonesia.


"Kita sebagai partner yang baik kita tunjukan, kita impor kapas, mereka juga harus impor tekstil," terang Enggar.


Pencabutan GSP dinilai Enggar akan menekan industri di AS. Pasalnya produk Indonesia merupakan bahan pendukung utama dalam industri di AS.


Enggar bilang produk Indonesia dan AS bersifat saling melengkapi. Hal itu pun dapat dijadikan pendorong untuk meningkatkan perdagangan Indonesia dengan AS.
