API Complains about Destruction of Domestic Textile Market PDF Print E-mail

The Indonesian Textile Association (API) complained about the collapse of domestic textile market due to the invasion of imported products and various other problems.

 

API Secretary General Kevin Hartanto said, the condition of the Indonesian textile industry is currently in a very poor condition. Industry players face severe challenges, such as the onslaught of imported raw materials and textile products.

 

"The current conditions, the textile industry faces severe challenges, because of many imports of used clothing, gray, and others," Kevin said

 

Although the BPS data states that textile imports have not been so large, reality in the field is that there are many imported products on the market. In fact, he worried about the entry of illegal textile import products into Indonesia. It could be that the product is entered through unmonitored routes.

 

According to him, evidence of the drop in textile products in the domestic market was seen in the decline in supply composition. The supply of the textile industry to domestic is currently only 40%. In fact, previously it could reach 80%. It could be that the difference is filled with legal or illegal imported products.

 

"TPT products (textiles and textile products) are known to be widely imported by the public, even by the weaving industry. That is because the price is always below the market price," he explained.

 

According to him, various efforts need to be carried out by government and all parties. Because, possibility that can occur is damage and destruction of domestic market. Not to mention the cessation of the TPT IKM industry production and factory closure.

 

"There must be routine activities in the field, conducting market operations in domestic market. Operations can be carried out two to three months. This is to find out the real conditions in the market," he explained.

 

Another alternative that can be done is security measures in accordance with trade instruments from the WTO, such as through anti-dumping, safeguards and antisubsidized schemes.
