Imported Textile Case was Investigated Completely PDF Print E-mail

All classes related to the national level support the seriousness of the government in investigating the textile importation case completely and making the Batam case its entry point.


The Association of Indonesian Textile Experts (IKATSI), the Indonesian Textile Association (API), the Indonesian Association of Filament Yarn and Fiber Producers (APSyFI) to the IKM community in production centers in various regions voiced the same thing, "thoroughly investigate to the root, catch all the perpetrator to the official who protects it ".


Chairman of IKATSI, Suharno Rusdi stated that this importation caused the domestic market to flood the import of cheap goods, thus endangering the performance of the domestic textile and textile products (TPT) industry, and even many companies have gone out of business and laid off their employees in the last 5 years. "The difference in price can be up to 50%, because the importation carried out by the mafia does not pay Import Duty (BM) and taxes correctly, even though the price from the country is already dumping," said Rusdi.


IKATSI also requested KEJAGUNG's permission to clean up the elements associated with the important mafia in several ministries. "We do see practices under invoicing, transshipment and seizure of goods from bonded areas, but don't forget how the mafia lobbies policies to legalize the practice through regulations".


Changes in the regulation of the textile trade system from PERMENDAG 85/2015 to 64 2017 to PERMENDAG 77 2019, it is clear that there is a significant relaxation pressure that facilitates importers and traders to import. "This must be investigated, and the change in policy has a very significant role in the performance of the national textile industry," he explained.


API Executive Secretary, Rizal Tanzil stated that customs procedures in the case of textile importation have been going on for a long time, such as recurring diseases. "In the past, using the wholesale import mode and API-P permit, 2017 the PIBT Task Force disbanded the wholesale import mode to switch to PLB, now textiles are closed to run to wholesale imports again," said Rizal.


Rizal is again committed to API to emphasize practices that have undermined the national textile industry for years until its performance continues to decline. API supports the government to bring to justice all the parties involved in perpetuating this kind of importation practice. "We have to thoroughly clean up the parties that are involved properly from the world business circles, bureaucratic elements in various ministries to those who become their backing, so that it won't happen again," he said.


The Secretary General of the Indonesian Fiber and Filament Producers Association, Redma Gita Wirawasta, stated that based on the calculation of requests in the domestic market, the estimated uncovered imports reached 331 thousand tons, around 16 thousand containers. "There are around 1300 containers a month, worth about Rp. 2,3 trillion whose taxes and import duties are definitely not entered into the state treasury, "said Redma


Not to mention the case of taxation after entering the market, because these imported goods are sold on the domestic market without using official invoices. "So these items are like being sold off, retailers or convection. If you buy this important item, you don't need to use an invoice, if you buy from a local producer you have to use an invoice according to the tax regulations. APSyFI asked the tax officials to follow up on this unprocedural import case into the realm of taxation cases. "Try checking the traders at the centers of selling fabrics and garments, if you don't have an invoice from the supplier, trace the supplier to the end, you will find these fake importers," said Redma.


APSyFI attracts losses that must be borne by many parties, ranging from loss of income from taxes and import duties, losses that must be borne by employers, losses that must be borne by workers to several cases of layoffs. "The textile industry is multi-economic, very complex, involving millions of direct and indirect workers, dozens of other business sector links that contribute tens of trillions of state revenue from the fiscal sector," he explained.
