INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - The Indonesian Employers Association (Apindo) persuaded South Korean automotive company Hyundai Motor Company to divert its production domestically. So far, Hyundai's production in Indonesia is still widely imported.


"What we are very pursuing is one of them Hyundai, who came from Hyundai Motor Group's President Chung Jin-haeng," said Apindo chairman of International Relations and Investment Division Shinta Widjaja yesterday.

However, the demand of some entrepreneurs in Indonesia will still be studied by the leader of Hyundai Motor Group. Hyundai's management at its headquarters claimed to have not been able to provide certainty.

"From his Mr. Chung said 'will learn the answer is standard, but yes we try to speed it up,' she explained.

Separately, Vice President Commissioner of PT Hyundai Mobil Indonesia (HMI) Jongkie D Sugiarto said it would follow up Hyundai for direct production in Indonesia.

"The Korean president said it was time for Korea to enter investment in several sectors in Indonesia," said Jongkie.

However, in fact HMI has produced one car with a type of h-1 that can be used for domestic and export needs. One of the export destination countries, namely Thailand.

"In fact it is good, Thailand happy (happy), from Indonesia we produce, until in Thailand its zero zero," he said.

In fact, this makes Thailand more profitable than buying from South Korea. If Thailand imports from South Korea, it will be subject to 40 percent import duty.

"Now, just export to Thailand, is exploring to other ASEAN countries that are also profitable," he said.

He added that in one month HMI can export 500 units of cars. Meanwhile, the company exported 5,000 units in one year.
