The Minister of Cooperatives and SMEs Teten Masduki firmly refused to buy and sell imported used clothes or commonly known as thrifting. This rejection step is a way to protect the textile industry, MSME players. "We want to protect our MSME products, especially in the textile and shoe textile product sectors," explained Teten Masduki, Monday (13/3/2023). According to him, currently textile and shoe products produced by national MSME actors are already scattered which are able to compete. The import of used and illegal textile products is not in line with the Government's efforts to encourage consumption of local products through the Proud Made in Indonesia National Movement.
