Textile Entrepreneurs Refuse Import Relaxation PDF Print E-mail
Written by Maizer   
Monday, 23 March 2020

Textile and textile product (TPT) entrepreneurs strongly reject import relaxation. Especially now that the productivity of textile factories is under pressure from the corona virus pandemic (COVID-19).

 

Deputy Chairman of the Indonesian Trade Association (API) of the Domestic Trade Sector, Chandra Setiawan said that in the midst of these conditions the government must provide opportunities for domestic producers to keep the national economy running.

 

"We firmly reject the relaxation of imports because we must focus more on domestic producers," Chandra said.

 

If there is relaxation of imports, Chandra explained, the textile industry from upstream to downstream will be hit. Given the textile production has a long and sustainable process.

 

"When we provide relaxation of imports in apparel goods, then it will be hit for the finished clothing industry and SMEs (Small and Medium Industries) and also for the fabric industry that has been fulfilling the apparel industry. If for example relaxation is given to imported fabrics, it will have an impact bad for the domestic fabric industry and also the yarn industry in the upstream and so on, "he said.

 

Chandra hopes that people will increasingly love domestic products so that textile production continues to run and can be a way to create jobs in Indonesia.

 

"We must immediately launch a movement to love domestic products because this is the only import substitution as an effort to create employment. At present, the smallest employment creation will be very meaningful in the current conditions," he said.
