Indonesian TPT Exports Compete with Ethiopia PDF Print E-mail

The Indonesian textile and textile product industry (TPT) players are faced with a complicated export challenge, namely the emergence of Ethiopia as a 'dark horse' in the sector.

 

Chairman of the Indonesian Textile Association (API) Ade Sudrajat said, Indonesia must be aware of Ethiopia's presence as a new giant player in the textile sector.

 

The reason, he saw the country began to enter the ranks of competing manufacturers of Indonesian textile products, in addition to Vietnam and Bangladesh.

 

Ade said, the situation occurred because the African continent's origin country had implemented highly productive incentives for the textile industry.

 

According to him, Ethiopia modeled on industrial schemes in Vietnam and China in creating supporting infrastructure for the textile industry. One of them is by providing cheap tax rates to textile investors.

 

On the other hand, he said, Ethiopia is very active in establishing trade cooperation with major textile export destination countries such as the United States (US) and the European Union (EU).

 

Indonesian Deputy Chairperson for International Relations of the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin) Shinta W. Kamdani confirmed that Indonesia must be wary of Ethiopia. Because the infrastructure supporting the textile sector in the country has grown rapidly.

 

He hopes, with the Indonesia-EFTA Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IE CEPA) and the Indonesia-European Union Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IEU CEPA) pact,Indonesiatextile exporters can demonstrate their competitiveness in the country.

 

As quoted from Bloomberg, Ethiopia managed to earn up to US $ 25.3 million from textile exports in July-August 2018.

 

The acquisition grew 8% compared to the same period last year or year on year (yoy).

 

At present, the number of textile factories in the country has reached 11 units and is likely to increase after the working visit of the Chinese businessmen association in September this year.

 

In addition, based on data from the Ethiopian Government, the textile and apparel industry in the country grew 51% per year for the past three years

 

Responding to the emergence of Ethiopia as a new 'scourge' for the Indonesian TPT industry, the Corporate Secretary of PT Pan Brothers Tbk. Iswar Deni claims, Ethiopian textile products have not been able to compete with Indonesian products.

 

According to him, the majority of textile market segments targeted by Ethiopia are currently in the middle to lower position.

 

Ekspor TPT Indonesia Berkompetisi dengan Ethiopia

 

Para pelaku industri tekstil dan produk tekstil (TPT) Indonesia dihadapkan pada tantangan ekspor baru yang cukup pelik, yakni kemunculan Ethiopia sebagai ‘kuda hitam’ di sektor tersebut.

 

Ketua Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia (API) Ade Sudrajat mengatakan, Indonesia harus mewaspadai kehadiran Ethiopia sebagai pemain raksasa baru di sektor tekstil.

 

Pasalnya, dia melihat negara tersebut mulai masuk ke dalam jajaran produsen kompetitor produk TPT Indonesia, selain Vietnam dan Bangladesh.

 

Ade menyebutkan, situasi tersebut terjadi lantaran negara asal Benua Afrika itu telah menerapkan insentif yang sangat produktif bagi industri tekstil.

 

Menurutnya, Ethiopia mencontoh skema industri di Vietnam dan China dalam menciptakan infrastruktur penunjang industri TPT. Salah satunya adalah dengan memberikan tarif pajak yang murah kepada investor tekstil.

 

Di sisi lain, dia menyebutkan, Ethiopia sangat aktif menjalin kerja sama dagang dengan negara-negara tujuan ekspor tekstil utama seperti Amerika Serikat (AS) maupun Uni Eropa (UE).

 

Wakil Ketua Umum Bidang Hubungan Internasional Kamar Dagang dan Industri (Kadin) Indonesia Shinta W. Kamdani membenarkan bahwa Indonesia harus mewaspadai Ethiopia. Pasalnya, infrastruktur pendukung sektor tekstil di negara tersebut telah berkembang pesat.

 

 

Dia berharap, dengan adanya pakta kerja sama ekonomi Indonesia-EFTA Comprehensive Economic Patnership Aggreement (IE CEPA) dan Indonesia-European Union Comprehensive Economic Patnership Aggreement (IEU CEPA), para eksportir TPT merah putih dapat menunjukkan daya saingnya di negara tersebut.

 

Seperti dikutip dari Bloomberg, Ethiopia berhasil  meraup pendapatan hingga US$25,3 juta dari ekspor tekstilnya pada Juli—Agustus 2018.

 

Perolehan tersebut tumbuh 8% dibandingkan dengan periode yang sama tahun lalu atau secara year on year (yoy).

 

Saat ini, jumlah pabrik tekstil di negara tersebut telah mencapai 11 unit dan berpeluang bertambah setelah adanya kunjungan kerja asosiasi pengusaha China pada September tahun ini.

 

Selain itu, berdasarkan data Pemerintah Ethiopia, industri tekstil dan pakaian jadi  di negara tersebut tumbuh 51% per tahun selama tiga tahun terakhir

 

Menanggapi kemunculan Ethiopia sebagai ‘momok’ baru bagi industri TPT Indonesia, Sekretaris Perusahaan PT Pan Brothers Tbk. Iswar Deni mengklaim, produk tekstil Ethiopia belum dapat menyaingi produk-produk asal Indonesia.

 

Menurutnya, mayoritas segmen pasar tekstil yang disasar Ethiopia saat ini masih pada posisi menengah ke bawah.
