The textile industry is one of the six manufacturing industry subsectors who experienced contractions in the Industrial Trust Index (IKI) this February, this was worried that it would continue throughout 2023. Director of Industry, Textile, Skin and Footwear of the Ministry of Industry (Kemenperin) Adie Rochmanto Pandiangan said, The textile industry will still be affected by the uncertainty of economic growth in export destination countries. "We are worried because based on several analyzes, in our export destination countries in 2023 it is predicted that it is still not so good," Adie said in the release of IKI Kemenperin in Jakarta on Tuesday (28/2/2023).

According to Adie, as long as there is no certainty regarding the end of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, inflation that will have an impact on the price of food and global energy will continue to whack, and the textile industry is one of the affected industries.

"Well, this is what certainly causes a delay in orders," Adie added. Especially according to Adie, the textile industry is an industry that is very dependent on the international market.

Although, continued Adie, his party recorded the growth of the textile industry orders. This is because according to Adie, there began to be efforts to improve economic in export destinations such as the United States, Europe to China. Thus, international orders began to grow slowly.

However, according to Adie, this cannot be considered as a significant progress for the textile industry because the shadows of stagflation and resistation are still haunting.

Moreover, although Adie said domestic orders for this industry were considered very good, industry players did not fully recognize it. This was revealed by the Chairperson of the Indonesian Producer and Filament Yarn Association (APSYFI) Redma Wirawasta, according to him there are still illegal imported goods that affect domestic demand for the textile industry.

"Indeed, the demand for local products in the domestic market began to move, [but] there are still many who doubt the government can seriously control imports, especially illegal imports," Redma said.

The textile and clothing industries have decreased ordering from abroad due to geopolitical instability. This then impacts the termination of employment (layoffs) in this industry throughout 2022 and is expected to continue this year.
