The Textile Industry loses hope in IED this time PDF Print E-mail

Prohibition of going home for Ied or Lebaran 2020 came into force since yesterday, Friday (24/4). The government has also instructed that this gathering in Ied is also carried out through social media, video calls / conferences as an effort to break the chain of the spread of the Corona virus (COVID-19).

 

Apparently, the policy gave a hard slap to the domestic textile and textile product (TPT) industry. Executive Secretary of the Indonesian Textile Association (API) Rizal Tanzil Rakhman revealed, there was no hope for the TPT industry to be able to earn income in Lebaran this time.

 

"We cannot expect this Lebaran at all. So indeed the market has been quiet from far-away days," said Rizal.

 

Rizal revealed, since 2019 the domestic textile industry has indeed been depressed by the flood of imports from China. Especially now when Corona is hitting the survival of various industries.

 

"In 2019 we imported from China a lot of fabrics and threads, as well as apparel. Then imports from them stopped when they were hit by Corona. But it was only 3 months, they have now finished Corona, the industry is running normally. But now we have Corona. "So now in China production is normal, whereas we have Corona, we are not normal," said Rizal

 

He said, the demand for TPT dropped dramatically. Especially seeing the current conditions in which various shopping centers, such as Tanah Abang Market and various malls are closed.

 

"Abnormal conditions affect the purchasing power of our people in the domestic, our local market. Purchasing power is down, textile wholesale centers are closed, for example Tanah Abang. Automatically there is no circulation of the textile trade because Tanah Abang is closed. So people's purchasing power is down, there is no market "The shops are closed, so demand will definitely drop dramatically," he explained.

 

According to Rizal, although currently there are still many online sellers who still offer Lebaran clothes will not help the domestic textile industry. The reason, most online sellers sell imported apparel.

 

"If you buy garments or clothes online, the comparison between local production and imports is more imported," Rizal concluded.
