Turkey imposes protective duties on Indonesian textiles

The Turkish Safeguard Authority (UFT) has subjected the woven fabrics and apparels from Indonesia to higher protective duties.

Director of Trade Security at the Trade Ministry, Ernawati, revealed that the Turkish industry proposed to impose 21 to 30 percent additional anti-dumping duty on woven fabrics and 28 to 40 percent on apparels.

Such rise in the duties would boost the cost of woven fabrics in the domestic market by US $0.75- 4.25 per kg, while the cost of apparels would also go up by around $3.5-20 per kg.

Indonesia has tied up with the Indonesian Textile Association, to earn protection for the country's products in Turkey, Ernawati stated during her recent address in Jakarta.

Around 30 percent of the Indonesia's textile exports are towards Turkey. The country, exported woven fabrics worth $137.9 million and apparels worth $13.4 million to Turkey, in 2008, but then in 2009 a fall was registered in the export volume of both the items.

The association Chairman, Ade Sudrajat Usman, has urged the Indonesian Trade Minister to send a delegation to Turkey which could carry out talks on the issue and submit their objections.

The Indonesian entrepreneurs have conveyed their objections to Turkey in their individual capacity, but such protective duty imposition being Turkey's government policy matter, intervention of the Indonesian government is sought in the matter.
