In­done­sia im­proved marginally by 0.62 per cent in its tex­tile and gar­ment ex­ports on the Y-o-Y ba­sis in the first half of 2017. Rise in knitwear gar­ment ex­ports, up 20.4 per cent in the pe­riod, con­trib­uted sig­nif­i­cantly in mount­ing ex­ports. This surge would en­cour­age the ex­porters to keep the same mo­men­tum for the rest of the year. How­ever, the coun­try noted a de­cline in ex­ports to ma­jor mar­kets such as the USA, the EU and Ja­pan by 3.6 per cent, 4 per cent and 5 per cent, re­spec­tively.

Ac­cord­ing to the In­done­sian Tex­tile As­so­ci­a­tion (API), the growth noted is a pleas­ing sign for the In­done­sian tex­tile and gar­ment ex­porters, as de­spite the fall­ing demand for tex­tile prod­ucts in the global mar­ket, the coun­try some­how man­aged to con­tinue its pos­i­tive trend.
