Apindo Predicts Rupiah Under IDR 14,000 on 2019 PDF Print E-mail

The Indonesian Employers Association (Apindo) predicts that the rupiah will strengthen to below Rp14 thousand per US dollar in 2019, given the trend in world oil prices is falling.



In addition, said Apindo Chairman Hariyadi Sukamdani in Jakarta on Wednesday (12/05/2018) there were efforts to reduce the use of the US currency in trade transactions. He explained that entrepreneurs can use currencies outside the US dollar, depending on the country of origin of the trading partner.



In that context, he said, the Renminbi (RMB) could be an alternative for entrepreneurs, considering that currently China is Indonesia's largest trading partner. "The trade value between Indonesia and China per year reaches US $ 60 billion. So if we can convert 20-30 percent to Renminbi, it would be good to reduce the dependence of the rupiah on the US dollar," Hariyadi said.



If many entrepreneurs have reduced the use of the US dollar in transactions, the rupiah can strengthen up to IDR 13,800-IDR 13,900 per US dollar. To achieve this target, Hariyadi said, Apindo was conducting data collection on large companies that could be invited to carry out currency conversions.



"In that stage, we recorded the big players. After they were recorded, then we sat down together with Bank Indonesia, as well as the banks to socialize the currency conversion plan, and the reasons," explained Hariyadi.



Until now, Hariyadi said, Apindo had recorded 31 large companies that would be invited to sit together with BI to realize the conversion plan.



However, he could not mention in detail the names of the large companies in question. The value of Indonesia's imports from China in the third quarter of 2018 reached 36 billion US dollars, up slightly from 2017 which amounted to 35 billion dollars.


Apindo Prediksi Rupiah di Bawah Rp14 Ribu 2019




Asosiasi Pengusaha Indonesia (Apindo) memprediksi mata uang rupiah akan menguat hingga di bawah Rp14 ribu per dolar Amerika Serikat pada 2019, mengingat tren harga minyak dunia sedang turun.



Selain itu, kata Ketua Umum Apindo Hariyadi Sukamdani di Jakarta, Rabu (5/12/2018)  ada upaya untuk mengurangi penggunaan mata uang AS itu dalam transaksi perdagangan. Ia menjelaskan bahwa pengusaha dapat menggunakan mata uang di luar dolar AS, tergantung dengan negara asal mitra dagang.



Dalam konteks itu, ia menyebutkan, mata uang Renminbi (RMB) dapat menjadi alternatif bagi para pengusaha, mengingat saat ini China merupakan mitra dagang terbesar Indonesia. "Nilai perdagangan antara Indonesia dan China per tahun mencapai US$ 60 miliar. Jadi kalau kita bisa konversi 20-30 persennya ke Renminbi, itu sudah bagus untuk mengurangi ketergantungan rupiah ke dolar AS," sebut Hariyadi.



Apabila banyak pengusaha sudah mengurangi penggunaan dolar AS dalam bertransaksi, rupiah dapat menguat hingga Rp13.800-Rp13.900 per dolar AS. Untuk mencapai sasaran tersebut, Hariyadi mengatakan, Apindo tengah melakukan pendataan terhadap perusahaan-perusahaan besar yang dapat diajak untuk melakukan konversi mata uang.



"Tahapannya itu, kami mendata pemain-pemain besar. Setelah tercatat, lalu kita duduk bersama dengan Bank indonesia, serta pihak perbankan untuk mensosialisasikan rencana konversi mata uang, serta alasannya," jelas Hariyadi.



Hingga saat ini, Hariyadi menyebut, Apindo telah mencatat 31 perusahaan besar yang akan diajak duduk bersama dengan BI untuk mewujudkan rencana konversi tersebut.



Namun, ia belum dapat menyebut secara mendetail nama-nama perusahaan besar yang dimaksud. Nilai impor Indonesia dari China pada kuartal III 2018 mencapai 36 miliar dolar AS, naik sedikit dari 2017 yang sebesar 35 miliar dolar.
