INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta, Indonesia's car export to Vietnam is threatened to stop the issuance of import regulations for passenger cars or completely built-up (CBU) cars by the Government of Vietnam.

Achieving this, Minister of Industry Airlangga Hartarto said, for now the government through the Ministry of Commerce has sent a letter to the Vietnamese government to request the regulation is considered.

"Because this part of non-tariff Barrier, of course we will see the next steps that need to be done," said Minister of Industry in Jakarta, Monday (19/2/2018).

According to him, the domestic passenger car industry does not need to change the standards, although Vietnam feels the Indonesian National Standard (SNI) which has been applied is not sufficient criteria imposed by the country.

"No, this is not a standard issue, it's a matter of test of quotes in every export, it's an uncommon, unusual thing," he said.

Furthermore, the Minister of Industry hopes that the regulation can be reconsidered by the Vietnamese government.

"We hope everything will be okay because Vietnam is the biggest export destination in Asean for Indonesian-made cars," he said.

Based on data from the Central Bureau of Statistics (BPS), Vietnam is a very promising automotive export market for Indonesia. Therefore, the value of Indonesian passenger car exports to Vietnam in January-November 2017 was recorded at US $ 241.2 million.

The value increased 1,256.5 percent compared to 2016 which amounted to US $ 17.782 million. Indonesia even ranked third country exporting passenger cars to Vietnam after Thailand and China with 13.12 percent market share.
