INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Chairman of Commercial Field of Motorcycle Association of Indonesia (AISI), Sigit Kumala said, so far the national motorcycle industry growth is still quite good. However, the problem we need to be supported from government regulations should not burden the industry.

"All the problems we have conveyed to the government, the hope will be followed up." Optimistic industry will move positively, "said Sigit when met INDUSTRY.co.id after Kadin FGD event in Jakarta, Monday (27/11/2017).

According to Sigit, the government's response is quite positive because the motorcycle industry is a driver of the national economy, especially in the region.

As is known, the national motorcycle sales increased in October 2017. From the data of the Indonesian Motorcycle Association (AISI) recorded domestic sales in October amounted to 579,552 units. The amount is up from 6% the previous month period of 546,607 units.

However, total sales in the last 10 months amounted to 4,919,804 units. The value is down 0.05% from the same period last year amounted to 4.92 million units.

"Currently, 60% of the capacity is currently used, while our exports are quite good, if last year the figure is around 318 thousand today is about 400 thousand or up to 20%," he explained.

Furthermore, Sigit said, next year local market, we predicted a rise of about 6.1 - 6.2 percent. That's because commodities are improving, some real sectors are improving.

"The government's export target is above 10 percent, we are only 3 years of this export is improving, next year it will be the first time since 2014," said Sigit.

Sigit hopes stainless components and plastic ores can be produced domestically. That way, there will be a more competitive price.

"Components of steel and plastic ore are still imported, so if there is a change of rupiah exchange rate it will affect our product, if there is steel and Plastics ores alone produced it can reduce cost about 3-5 percent," added Sigit.
