 “APR Releases Inaugural Sustainability Progress Report”

Asia Pacific Rayon (APR) has released its inaugural Sustain-ability Progress Report covering the first 18 months of its operations from January 2019 to June 2020. Formally inaugurated by Indonesia President Joko Widodo in February 2020, APR is a vertically integrated operation from renewable fibre plantations to highvalue textile manufacturing facilities, located in in Riau, Sumatra.

In mid-November, the United State International Trade Commission (USITC) initiated the dumping accusation on a polyester textured filament yarn (PTY) from Indonesia. Secretary General of the Indonesian Association of Fiber and Filament Yarn Producers (APSyFI), Redma Gita Wirawasta, suspects that this accusation was due to exports made by the Bonded Logistics Center (PLB) company to the United States in 2019.

The Indonesia Textile Association (API) on Nov. 26 2020 organized an online symposium called Towards Responsible Supply Chain. Living up to its promise to highlight stakeholder cooperation, the event featured panellists from different backgrounds related to the textile industry, representing policymakers, think tanks, producers, suppliers and end-users.

The President of the Republic of Indonesia, Joko Widodo, released exports of Indonesian products which were carried out simultaneously in Lamongan, East Java; Boyolali, Central Java; Sunter, DKI Jakarta, and a number of other cities spread across 16 provinces in Indonesia on December 4, 2020. President Joko Widodo virtually released these exports from the Bogor Palace. The activity entitled "Export Release to Global Market" is centered in Lamongan, East Java, and is coordinated directly by the Minister of Trade Agus Suparmanto.

The Indonesian textile industry is deemed necessary to make fundamental changes in order to remain competitive in the global market.

Rayon Asia Pacific Director Basrie Kamba said the textile sector is a very vital industry in Indonesia. He considered, if the textile sector is to regain its glory, there needs to be a fundamental change in government policy.
