In 2016, apparel exports from this Southeast Asian nation decreased 3.2 per cent due to several challenges including high logistics costs, and gas and power tariffs being higher than other competitor countries, according to API chairman Ade Sudrajat, a leading Indonesian daily reported.
At present, the US is the largest clothing importer from Indonesia. Sudrajat urged the government to lobby with the new US administration to expand its Generalised System of Preferences (GSP) to include more Indonesian apparel and accessories. This would facilitate the entry of more Indonesian products into the US at lower tariffs. (RKS)
