After interpreting one year of the outbreak of the Covid-19 Pandemic as a momentum for economic revival, Jemmy Kartiwa Sastraatmadja, Chairman of the Indonesian Textile Association (API), was present as one of the speakers in the National Webinar entitled HEALTHY INDONESIA and FORWARD: Post-Pandemic Economic Awakening which was held by PARA Syndicate on 10 March 2021.

Chairman of the Indonesian Textile Association, Jemmy Kartiwa Sastraatmadja, said the textile and textile product (TPT) industry has experienced ups and downs since the Covid-19 pandemic last year. After previously successfully bouncing back in the fourth quarter of 2020, the enactment of micro-community activity restrictions (PPKM) earlier this year hit the textile industry again.

China posted a record export growth of up to 154.9% in February 2021 compared to a year earlier. Meanwhile, in the same period, imports were recorded to only grow 17.3%, the highest since October 2018.

The fashion industry continues to grow in line with the ever-growing and dynamic market. Fashion trends are also moving fast, making the fast fashion industry encourage people to buy more clothes at affordable prices.

Small and medium enterprises engaged in the textile economy in Indonesia are still in a very bad condition due to the Covid-19 pandemic.This condition is also experienced by many entrepreneurs in Bandung Regency. This was conveyed by the Supervisory Board for the Empowerment of Small and Medium Enterprises (UKM), the National Governing Body of the Indonesian Textile Association (BPN API), H. Agus Ruslan.
