President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) invited entrepreneurs, especially those who are members of the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KADIN) and the Indonesian Young Entrepreneurs Association (HIPMI) not to see any major problems from the trade war between the United States (US) and the People's Republic of China (PRC). However, the President invited to see the opportunity or opportunity that emerged from the trade war.
"In my opinion there is an opportunity, there is an opportunity that we can take from the height of this trade war. And I see all at the forefront of taking advantage of this opportunity, "said President Jokowi while receiving KADIN and HIPMI officials at Merdeka Palace, Jakarta, Wednesday (12/6) afternoon.
The President pointed to an example such as in the US which previously entered products from China, then could become Indonesia's opportunities to increase capacity so that products could enter there.
The Head of State also pointed out, for example, textile products, garments that were once filled with products from there, now that they were just busy being filled.
With electronic products, for example, or furniture products that I know, more than 50% of them are all from China, why are we not filled with them? .
Earlier at the beginning of his remarks, President Jokowi said, election was over but the process at the Constitutional Court (MK) is still continuing, the government hopes to be able to focus again, concentrate again on economic matters.
Attending the occasion included KADIN Chairperson Rosan P. Roeslani and HIPMI Chairperson Bahlil Lahadalia. (setkab)
