The governments of Indonesia and South Korea have agreed to reactivate comprehensive IK-CEPA economic cooperation which is targeted to be completed in November 2019.

Trade Minister Enggartiasto Lukita said the IK CEPA reactivation initiative emerged when he met with South Korean Minister of Industry and Trade Kim Hyun-chong in November 2018.


"From the meeting we agreed to resume the IK CEPA negotiations, to deepen the existing potentials," he said.


Minister Enggar said, the two countries agreed to complete negotiation process in November 2019. Therefore, the substance of the negotiations is targeted to be completed no later than October 2019.


He said, IK-CEPA would be one of the facilities for the two countries to increase trade value by US $ 30 billion by 2022.


Based on data from the Ministry of Commerce, the trade value of the two countries in January-November 2018 reached US $ 18.62 billion.


However, according to him, the two countries are still in the process of preparing commodities and the business sector which will be cooperated with South Korea.


According to him, for exports, Indonesia will boost the delivery of skilled workers in the comprehensive economic cooperation pact.


Instead, Indonesia will take advantage of investment opportunities from South Korea in the automotive, electronic and industrial sectors 4.0.


Meanwhile, South Korean Minister of Industry and Trade Kim Hyun-chong said that Indonesia is a trading partner and strategic economic cooperation partner in Asean.


He hopes the IK CEPA will deepen the cooperation between the Republic of Indonesia and South Korea which has been established through the ASEAN-South Korea FTA.


"We are quite interested in opening deeper cooperation in the textile sector. Because we see the sector growing well in Indonesia. And of course there will be opportunities for other cooperation that we can explore in the future," he said.


Meanwhile, Director General of International Trade Negotiations Faith Pambagyo said that the IK CEPA negotiations had been held in seven rounds in 2012-2014. However, the negotiations were stopped because Indonesia experienced a presidential change.


"Later, we will not start over again. We just need to continue and update new cooperation opportunities from both countries," he explained.



Sasar Tekstil, Korea-Indonesia Lanjut Bahas Perdagangan Bebas IK-CEPA




Pemerintah Indonesia dan Korea Selatan sepakat untuk mengaktifkan kembali kerja sama ekonomi komprehensif IK-CEPA yang ditargetkan selesai perundingannya pada November 2019.


Menteri Perdagangan Enggartiasto Lukita mengatakan, inisiatif reaktivasi IK CEPA muncul ketika dia bertemu dengan Menteri Perindustrian dan Perdagangan Korsel Kim Hyun-chong pada November 2018. 


"Dari pertemuan tersebut kami sepakat untuk melanjutkan kembali perundingan IK CEPA, untuk memperdalam potensi-potensi yang ada," katanya.


Menteri Enggar mengatakan, kedua negara sepakat untuk menyelesaikan proses perundingan pada November 2019. Untuk itu, substansi perundingan ditargetkan selesai paling lambat Oktober 2019.


Dia menyebutkan, IK-CEPA akan menjadi salah satu fasilitas bagi kedua negara untuk meningkatkan nilai perdagangan sebesar US$30 miliar pada 2022.


Adapun berdasarkan data Kementerian Perdagangan, nilai perdagangan kedua negara pada Januari-November 2018 mencapai US$18,62 miliar.


Kendati demikian, menurutnya kedua negara masih dalam proses menyiapkan komoditas dan sektor bisnis yang akan dikerjasamakan dengan Korsel.


Menurutnya, untuk ekspor, Indonesia akan menggenjot pengiriman tenaga kerja terampil dalam pakta kerja sama ekonomi komprehensif tersebut.


Sebaliknya, Indonesia akan memanfaatkan peluang investasi dari Korsel di sektor otomotif, elektronik dan industri 4.0.


Sementara itu, Menteri Perindustrian dan Perdagangan Korsel Kim Hyun-chong mengatakan, Indonesia merupakan mitra dagang dan mitra kerja sama ekonomi yang strategis di Asean.


Dia berharap IK CEPA akan memperdalam kerja sama antara RI dan Korsel yang selama ini terjalin melalui Asean-Korsel FTA.


"Kami cukup tertarik membuka kerja sama yang lebih dalam di sektor tekstil. Karena kami melihat sektor itu tumbuh dengan baik di Indonesia. Dan tentu akan ada peluang-peluang kerja sama lain yang bisa kita gali ke depannya," ujarnya.


Adapun, Direktur Jenderal Perundingan Perdagangan Internasional Iman Pambagyo mengatakan, perundingan IK CEPA sudah sempat dilakukan dalam tujuh putaran pada 2012—2014. Namun, perundingan tersebut terhenti lantaran Indonesia mengalami pergantian presiden.



"Nanti, kita tidak akan memulai dari awal lagi. Kita tinggal melanjutkannya dan melakukan update peluang-peluang kerja sama baru dari kedua negara," jelasnya.
