General Chairperson of the Indonesian Textile Association (API), Jemmy Kartiwa Sastraatmadja said that the threat of a global recession that was said to occur in 2023 was now felt for textile businesses. He said the export of textile products is now hampered until there is a decline. "Exports of current products have been felt to have fallen by 30 percent," he said on Thursday, October 27, 2022. Jemmy estimates that the decline in textile commodity exports will be worse next year. Europe and the United States, he said, were export destinations that experienced the greatest decline in purchasing power.
