INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta, Chairman of Indonesian Medical Device Producers Association (Aspaki) Ade Tarya Hidayat said the health equipment industry (Alkes) is now early comes to an end.

"Currently, we are struggling to face import rush, and the more difficult it is to find investors," said Ade Tarya in Jakarta (11/3/2018).

In addition, the lack of government support becomes increasingly difficult for the Alkes industry to move. "The lack of support from the government is increasingly difficult for us to develop," he explained.

He said the government should continue to encourage the absorption of domestic products in the procurement of medical devices and state-owned facilities. "One of the obstacles that hold back our growth rate is because consumers tend to prefer imported products," he said.

He said local industries are now producing more low-tech medical devices to prevent the risk of unabsorbed production.

"Do not you have a big investment but marketing it is still difficult," he said.

Previously, Aspaki targets the national medical equipment industry market this year to reach Rp13.5 trillion. However, of that value imported products still dominate about 92%.
