Textile Raw Materials Still Imported, Government Asked to Contribute PDF Print E-mail

The Indonesian Textile Association (API) of Central Java is pushing the government to develop cotton raw materials for the textile industry needs of textile products (TPT) in the country. Because the raw material needs in the manufacturing industry are considered quite high.

 

"The potential development of the domestic textile industry is quite large. "Even from the recorded data, the sector is able to contribute to the second largest foreign exchange in the non-oil sector," said Deputy Chair of API Jateng, Liliek Setiawan.

 

However, he admitted that the high potential had not been matched by readiness from within the country. So that the industry players still have to import goods from abroad.

 

"Of course this is very ironic. Because the raw materials used are almost 90 percent imported. Not only raw materials, in terms of technology and other needs we also still have a lot of imports, "he explained.

 

For this reason, he hopes that the government can improve research. So that the cotton raw material needs can be developed domestically. Because with technological advancements and efforts made, it is possible that the raw material needs can be met independently without relying on imported goods.

 

Meanwhile on the same occasion, the Indonesian Cotton Councill Representative Program (CCI), Andy Do said, the value of imports of Cotton USA products to Indonesia so far was quite large. Even the figure reaches 500 million USD per year.

 

"Because of the high potential, we encourage the domestic textile industry to be able to develop its products more optimally. "In order to improve product competitiveness in the global market," he said.

 

 

 

Bahan Baku Tekstil Masih Impor, Pemerintah Diminta Berkontribusi

 

 

 

Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia (API) Jawa Tengah mendorong pemerintah mengembangkan bahan baku kapas  untuk kebutuhan industri tekstil produk tekstil (TPT) di dalam negeri. Pasalnya, kebutuhan bahan baku pada industri manufaktur tersebut dianggap cukup tinggi.

 

“Potensi perkembangan industri TPT dalam negeri itu cukup besar. Bahkan dari data yang tercatat, sektor tersebut mampu memberikan sumbangan devisa negara terbesar kedua disektor non migas,” kata Wakil Ketua API Jateng, Liliek Setiawan.

 

Namun demikian, ia mengaku tingginya potensi tersebut belum diimbangi dengan kesiapan dari dalam negeri. Sehingga para pelaku industri tersebut masih harus melakukan impor barang dari luar negeri.

 

“Tentunya ini sangat ironis. Karena bahan baku yang digunakan hampir 90 persen impor. Tidak hanya bahan baku saja, dari sisi teknologi dan kebutuhan lainnya kita juga masih banyak impor, “jelasnya.

 

Untuk itu, pihaknya berharap agar pemerintah bisa meningkatkan riset. Agar kebutuhan bahan baku kapas tersebut bisa dikembangkan di dalam negeri. Karena dengan kemajuan teknologi dan upaya yang dilakukan, tidak menutup kemungkinan kebutuhan bahan baku tersebut bisa dipenuhi secara mandiri tanpa menggantungkan dengan barang impor.

 

Sementara itu dalam kesempatan yang sama, Program Representative Cotton Councill Internasional (CCI) Indonesia, Andy Do mengatakan, nilai impor produk Cotton USA ke Indonesia selama ini cukup besar. Bahkan angkanya mencapai 500 juta USD per tahun.

 

“Karena tingginya potensi itu, kita mendorong kepada industri tekstil dalam negeri untuk dapat mengembangkan produknya secara lebih maksimal. Agar dapat meningkatkan daya saing produk di pasar global,” tandasnya.
