Deputy Chairman of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin) for Industry, Bobby Gafur Umar, asked the government to move quickly to overcome the domino effect of the global economic slowdown .The reason, he said, although it was still at the expansion level, Indonesia's manufacturing index in October 2022 was observed to fall from September 2022. The downward trend in demand that has fueled employee efficiency in labor-intensive sectors, namely the textile and textile product (TPT) to garment industries, must be the government's focus. Immediately take action, including protecting the domestic market.

Based on the association's report, the textile and textile products (TPT) and footwear industry experienced a slowdown in performance. This is due to decreased utilization in the fiber industry (20%), spinning (30%), weaving and knitting (50%), garments (50%), baby clothes (20-30%), and footwear (49%) . Some of these companies are said to have cut their working hours to 3-4 days. The usual working hours are 7 working days. Meanwhile, workers affected by layoffs from the textile and garment industry were reported to have reached 92,149 thousand people and from the footwear industry as many as 22,500 people. However, from the results of the report, cross-checks are being carried out in the field by the Ministry of Industry's internal task force (Kemenperin) and related institutions.

Recently, the issue of mass layoffs (PHK) emerged in the manufacturing sector, especially in the textile and textile products (TPT) industry, which triggered pressure for the government to limit imports. University of Indonesia economist Fithra Faisal Hastiadi assessed that the restrictions on textile imports were not the answer to the problems of the national textile industry sector. He explained that the problem of Indonesian textiles is related to losing competitiveness. On the other hand, according to him, backward participation in the Indonesian market is very closed so that access to raw materials is hampered and has an impact on expensive input costs.
