Indonesia and Morocco agreed to increase trade cooperation through the activation of the joint trade commission (JTC) forum. The two countries will also immediately begin preferential trade agreement (PTA) negotiations.

 

Bilateral Negotiation Director, Ni Made Ayu Marthini said she had met the Moroccan Delegation led by Senior Researchers from the Asia and America Region, Ministry of Industry, Investment, Trade and Digital Economy (IPIED) Asmaa Mkhentar. This meeting was a follow-up to the results of the Indonesian Minister of Trade's work visit Enggartiasto Lukita to Morocco in June 2018.

 

During the visit, the Minister of Trade signed a joint statement with the Minister of Trade of Morocco, Rakiya Eddarhem, regarding the plan to activate the JTC forum and the formation of the Indonesia-Morocco PTA.

 

"In order to maintain the momentum of signing the joint statement, Indonesia and Morocco have determined the steps to start the first JTC and PTA meeting planned to be held at the end of March or early April 2019 in Jakarta," Made said.

 

Made said, the two countries also agreed on the terms of reference (TOR) to launch the JTC meeting. The JTC will not only be a regular bilateral meeting forum that addresses issues of trade barriers, but will also play an important role in supporting PTA negotiations.

 

At the JTC forum, the governments of the two countries will also discuss efforts to encourage business interaction between the private sector of the two countries. The results of these business interactions are the identification of products that have the potential to increase trade so that they can be an indication of products negotiated in PTA.

 

"PTA negotiations with Morocco are different from other PTA negotiations, because they are conducted in parallel, namely a meeting between the governments of the two countries discussing tariff reduction with a meeting between the two countries' private parties to discuss the list of products to be negotiated to get a tariff reduction or potential investment cooperation," Made said.

 

Identify potential products

 

He said, the two countries had identified potential sectors or products to increase their trade. Indonesia said that several products included automotive components, leather products, textiles, spices, food and beverages, furniture, palm oil, paper, coffee and fishery products. While at a meeting with the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry the previous day, Morocco expressed its desire to explore cooperation in the oil palm, coffee, textile, rubber and tire sectors, agro industry, pharmaceuticals and olive oil

 

Based on data from the Ministry of Trade, Morocco is one of the non-traditional export markets which is a link to African and European markets. The total trade between Indonesia and Morocco in 2017 reached 154.8 million US Dollars. This amount consists of Indonesian exports to Morocco amounting to 86 million US dollars while Indonesian imports from Morocco amounted to 68.8 million US Dollars. Thus, in 2017 Indonesia a trade surplus of USD 17.1 million against Morocco.

 

 

 

Indonesia-Maroko Segera Memulai Perundingan Dagang

 

 

Indonesia dan Maroko menyepakati peningkatan kerja sama perdagangan melalui aktivasi forum joint trade commission (JTC). Kedua negara juga akan segera memulai perundingan preferential trade agreement (PTA).

 

Direktur Perundingan Bilateral, Ni Made Ayu Marthini mengatakan dirinya telah bertemu Delegasi Maroko yang dipimpin Peneliti Senior Kawasan Asia dan Amerika, Kementerian Industri, Investasi, Perdagangan, dan Ekonomi Digital (IPIED) Asmaa Mkhentar. Pertemuan ini merupakan tindak lanjut dari hasil kunjungan kerja Menteri Perdagangan RI Enggartiasto Lukita ke Maroko pada Juni 2018 lalu.

 

Pada kunjungan tersebut, Menteri Perdagangan menandatangani pernyataan bersama dengan Menteri Muda Perdagangan Maroko, Rakiya Eddarhem, mengenai rencana pengaktifan forum JTC dan  pembentukan PTA Indonesia-Maroko.

 

“Dalam rangka menjaga momentum penandatanganan pernyataan bersama tersebut, Indonesia dan Maroko telah menentukan langkah-langkah untuk memulai pertemuan pertama JTC dan PTA yang direncanakan akan dilaksanakan pada akhir Maret atau awal April 2019 di Jakarta,” ujar Made.

 

Made mengatakan, kedua negara juga menyepakati kerangka acuan (TOR) untuk meluncurkan pertemuan JTC. Nantinya JTC tidak hanya sebuah forum pertemuan bilateral regular yang membahas isu-isu hambatan perdagangan, tetapi juga akan berperan penting untuk mendukung negosiasi PTA.

 

Pada forum JTC, pemerintah kedua negara juga akan membahas upaya-upaya untuk mendorong interaksi bisnis antara sektor swasta dari kedua negara. Hasil dari interaksi bisnis tersebut adalah identifikasi produk yang berpotensi untuk ditingkatkan perdagangannya sehingga dapat menjadi indikasi produk yang dirundingkan dalam PTA.

 

“Perundingan PTA dengan Maroko berbeda dengan perundingan PTA lainnya, karena dilakukan secara paralel yaitu pertemuan antara pemerintah kedua negara yang membahas penurunan tarif dengan pertemuan antara pihak swasta kedua negara untuk mendiskusikan daftar produk yang akan dinegosiasikan untuk mendapatkan penurunan tarif atau potensi kerja sama investasi,” ujar Made.

 

Identifikasi produk potensial

 

Dia mengatakan, kedua negara telah mengidentifikasi sektor atau produk potensial untuk ditingkatkan perdagangannya. Indonesia menyampaikan beberapa produk antara lain komponen otomotif, produk kulit, tekstil, rempah-rempah, makanan dan minuman, furnitur, kelapa sawit, kertas, kopi, dan produk perikanan. Sedangkan pada pertemuan dengan Kadin Indonesia sehari sebelumnya, Maroko menyampaikan keinginannya untuk menjajaki kerja sama di sektor kelapa sawit, kopi, tekstil, karet dan ban, agro industri, farmasi, dan minyak zaitun

 

Berdasarkan data Kementrian Perdagangan, Maroko merupakan salah satu pasar ekspor non tradisional yang menjadi penghubung ke pasar Afrika dan Eropa. Total perdagangan Indonesia-Maroko pada tahun 2017 mencapai 154,8 juta Dolar AS. Jumlah tersebut terdiri dari ekspor Indonesia ke Maroko sebesar  86 juta Dolar AS sedangkan impor Indonesia dari Maroko sebesar 68,8 juta Dolar AS. Dengan demikian, pada tahun 2017 Indonesia surplus perdagangan sebesar USD 17,1 juta terhadap Maroko.
