As revealed by the Indonesia Textile Association Chief, Jadin Jamaluddin, the textile sector in Yogyakarta is still not being able to improve its condition from the adversities of the natural calamities and the global economic slump. Textile exports of the region, last year dropped by 15 percent, as against the exports in 2009.

He revealed that, handicraft textiles, prepared by the micro and small to medium-scale enterprises, mainly dominate a major part of the textile industry in Yogyakarta, which is famous for its handmade batik prints. However, the industry now needs to stand the competition extended by the low-cost textile items from China.

Businessmen, a majority of whom are having problems in marketing their goods, each day walk in to the Business Consultancy Clinic in Yogyakarta to seek consultation, Secretary of the Business Consultancy Clinic, Fatonah Syaifuddin said. Consultation on various issues like business strategies, marketing of goods and export mapping is being offered at the Clinic.
