Small and Medium Industries Encouraged to Submit Safeguards PDF Print E-mail
Written by Maizer   
Tuesday, 12 May 2020
The Directorate General of Small and Medium Industries and Miscellaneous (IKMA) of the Ministry of Industry is preparing a small and medium industry (IKM) to be a petitioner (petitioner) for safeguarding garment products through the Indonesian Textile Association (API).

 

"We must jointly arrange this, including IKM, to realize this safeguard and protect domestic industries," said Director General of IKMA of the Ministry of Industry Gati Wibawaningsih in Jakarta yesterday.

 

Thus, he said, the textile and textile product (TPT) ecosystem in Indonesia would be formed, in which there were large industries and TPT SMEs.

 

Gati added, garment safeguards also aim to realize Indonesia as the center of world Muslim fashion with the TPT industry to be driven to meet domestic and global needs.

 

Unfortunately, a number of Muslim fashion products, such as veils and scarves, experienced a surge in imports from 2016 to 2018, from 7,000 tons in 2016 to 12,000 tons in 2018.

 

Not ready to operate

 

When contacted on different occasions, the Indonesian Textile Association (API) said the textile industry was gasping for air now due to the co-19 pandemic. Entrepreneurs find it difficult to operate because there is no market.

 

"The TPT industry will only be able to operate if the merket already exists," API General Chairperson Jemmy Kartiwa Sastraatmaja said yesterday.

 

He added, the existence of a pandemic had hit the purchasing power of the Indonesian market so that what needed to be relaxed was the market. "The main thing now is that the market has been relaxed," he said.

 

The results of the Retail Sales Survey released by Bank Indonesia yesterday indicate the continuing decline in retail sales in March 2020. This is reflected in the March 2020 Real Sales Index (IPR) which fell 4.5% (yoy), deeper than 0.8% ( yoy) in February 2020.

 

The decline came from sales contraction in almost all commodity groups monitored, except for the food, beverage and tobacco group, which remained solid, said Executive Director of Bank Indonesia (BI) Communication Department Onny Widjanarko.

 

"The deepest decline in retail sales occurred in other goods groups, particularly the clothing sub-group," he said.
