Since two weeks ago Tim Ministry of Industry, Ministry of Trade and fiscal policy (BKF), Ministry of Finance has completed the discussion of the revised tariffs contained in the Minister of Finance Policy (PMK) No. 241 of 2010, but until now new rules have not also signed by the Minister Finance.
Ministry of Industry stated that the cross-ministerial coordination meeting last government had agreed to free the import duty tariff for 182 (non food) in the revision of PMK 241 of 2010 on Stipulation of System Tariff Classification of Goods and imposition of duty on imported goods. "It should now be signed by the Minister of Finance, and in April it was supposed to be able to enter into force," said Industry Minister MS. Hidayat after attending the opening Rapimnas Chamber of Commerce a few days ago.
Head of Climate Policy Assessment and Quality of Industry Ministry of Industry Arryanto Sagala said the revision should be published soon PMK 241 to support programs for industry growth. "I have always urged to be published, at least the end of March yesterday. Because if not, revitalization program through the restructuring of textile industry machinery and footwear that have been launched will be ineffective "said Arryanto.
But the Minister of Finance, Agus Martowardojo that states can not approve the proposed revisions PMK 241 of 2010 that have been filed. Presidential palace yesterday, Agus Martowardojo said that the proposal should be reviewed again because, it wanted to reassure all of the proposal pursuant to the right target to encourage growth of the industry so it can not immediately signed.
Secretary General of the Indonesia Synthetic Fiber Makers Association (APSyFI), Redma Gita Wirawasta expressed astonishment at the attitude of the Minister of Finance as this has been discussed more than one month by all stakeholders both government and private. "BKF are from the Ministry of Finance, the draft that there is now Minster’s desk put by BKF on the input of other Ministry and business association, so the draft was the result of the review, if you now want to study again, who will examine, how much longer it took "he explained.
In response to this, Indotextiles Executive Director Korrie Ayun Larasatie states that the slow performance of the bureaucracy and convoluted as this is the culture and difficult to remove. "Additional duties of raw materials and capital goods in PMK 241 is a burden to the industry in many sectors, if the revision does not come out, it will continue to be a burden and reduce the competing products of our industry" he explained.
It is also at odds with the attitude of the Minister of Finance who seemed not to understand the difficulties that must be borne by industry. "Why should it be reviewed again, BKF are Minister’s staff, if it should be reviewed again means Minister did not believe the staff of his own, even so impressed bureaucracy that hamper the performance of the industry" he explained. "If you make the policies that have been mature and just signature of course takes a long time, do not dream to built of port infrastructure, roads and others who need big cost” he said.
