President Joko Widodo wants Muslim fashion to dominate the world market, remembering the current economic value reaches Rp54 trillion. When receiving 28 Muslim Fashion Community at the Presidential Palace in Bogor, West Java on  last Thursday (26/4), President Joko Widodo wants the sales value of Indonesian Muslim fashion to be increased, especially for overseas markets. President Joko Widodo also said that to make this come true, he has asked the related ministers to provide a forum in a bid to introduce Indonesian Muslim fashion in other countries. He also affirmed that there is  a great opportunity for Indonesian Moslem fashion to dominate the world market. Besides, Indonesia has the largest Muslim population in the world. But there must be good cooperation among designers, Moslem fashion entrepreneurs, and the government. President also remarked that to support the development of the Muslim fashion industry, the government plans to provide more funds for this industry. He hopes that in the near future, there will be talks between the government and Muslim fashion businesspeople in a bid to open the domestic market and export. The President believes cooperation between the government and Muslim fashion can encourage Muslims to enter the world market. Meanwhile, National Chairman of Indonesian Fashion Chamber (IFC), Ali Charisma, who is also a fashion designer, said that Indonesia has great potential to dominate the world’s Muslim fashion market. However, to encourage the expansion of Muslim clothing market markets abroad, the government also needs to provide better-quality raw materials. After meeting President Joko Widodo at the Presidential Palace in Bogor, West Java on last Thursday (26/4), Ali Charisma also remarked that what is needed is the adjustment of Indonesian products to the world’s standards, including the stylishness. He perceived that the export of Indonesian Muslim fashion products will adapt to the stylishness of local communities and the season in every country. The expansion of Indonesian Muslim fashion market share is also inseparable from government support. Secretary General of the National Craft Council, Euis Saedah also expressed the same statement. He said that the growth of Muslim fashion in Indonesia increases every year. He also explained that the average growth of the fashion industry reaches more than 10 percent per year. One indicator is the growing number of Muslim fashion industry players who market their products through various exhibitions.
