Indonesia became an easy target for Import

The crisis in Europe has not shown signs of ending. Global investors, through the monetary, financial markets, many of which draw their funds from emerging market countries - including Indonesia. 

Also due to the crisis, Indonesia's exports to major markets like the United States, China, and Europe would be sluggish. Why, they certainly want to maintain their domestic production to market themselves, so that should put a halt to the goods from abroad. 

So what happened with Indonesia? 

With 240 million inhabitants and an economy that sustained consumption, Indonesia could become easy targets for foreign products seeking market. In the case of free trade agreements with several countries, Indonesia has proved that many products less competitive. 

Here are some items that will keep surging imports into the domestic market:

From January to September, the value of imports of electronic goods have reached around Rp 25 trillion. Rose 10.49 percent from the same period last year. According to Ministry of Industry, imports of electronics products is dominated television, air conditioners, washing machines, refrigerators, cell phones, and computers. Television provides the largest contribution.

If we still see a large market such as Tanah Abang or Cipulir stretched, it turns out that all the supported imported goods. The market share of domestic products only the remaining 40 percent. The first half of this year, based on data from the Indonesian Employers Association, apparel imports reached $ 80.52 million.

The biggest players are Chinese, who earned $ 26.23 million or about 33 percent market share. Meanwhile, Hong Kong received $ 11.94 million.

Children's toys
Indonesian Employers' Association data showed, throughout the first half of this year's toy imports reached $ 38.26 million (up 39.52 percent). The main players are China, with 71.14 percent share.

Most lower-priced toys that are flooding the market Mango Two, Asemka, or Prumpung. Later, had gone into the villages. While the plush toys from America for instance, into a modern store.

Based on data released by Association of Food and Beverage Indonesia, imported food and beverages this year for the period January to May rose about 17 percent compared to same period last year. Value reached $ 89.56 million.

Countries in Southeast Asia which became the most widely utilize the Indonesian market is Malaysia, which reached $ 20.6 million. Then there is Thailand.

Throughout January-October 2011, imports of garments reached $ 136.6 million. Interestingly, according to the explanation of the Indonesian Textile Association, imports from China reached $ 200 million. This figure shows the difference is still much smuggling.

As for the import of textiles and textile products from China, during the first six months of this year its value had reached $ 1.73 billion. While Indonesia's ability to export to that country only $ 213 million. Market even pillows, shirts, curtains, bed sheets, already controlled foreign.

Ministry of Industry released a number of imported raw materials that need to be wary because of the number and value continues to increase. Inside is a telecommunications equipment and spare parts. January-April period this year amounting to $ 0.84 billion, up 757.06 percent from a year ago.

This condition is used as an excuse to give a tax break at a specific time for the telecommunications sector. The hope, foreign investors are willing to open a factory here.

Data Ministry of Commerce noted, during the period January to March 2011, imports of footwear reached $ 42.12 million, up 43.47 percent compared to last year. Domestic product has been shared half-half share of the market.

The biggest importer is China, which entered the lower middle market. Segment was the largest in Indonesia.

The entry of imported goods will be more swift, as the sluggish market in the European region. For Indonesia the choice is clear. If the government allows, domestic production would be eliminated and labor is threatened. Alternatively, the government is restricting in various ways that are legal, such as imposing non-tariff barriers are more stringent.
