INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Coordinating Ministry of Economic Affairs seeks to trigger exports in the fields of industries such as furniture and wood through the identification of licensing issues, raw materials, to taxation.

"We have detailed proposals from the ministries to encourage exports, especially the ones we discuss much about the industry," Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs Darmin Nasution said after a coordination meeting on export and investment development in Jakarta on Friday (13/7/2018).

One of the matters discussed in the meeting include the Timber Legality Verification System or SVLK from the timber industry.

SVLK is a tracking system to ensure the legality of sources of timber circulating and trading in Indonesia. The system ensures that wood products and raw materials are obtained or derived from sources whose origins and management meet the legality aspect.

"SVLK is obliged to all exporters or companies exporting furniture or timber, It is proposed not to burden the process of fulfilling the SVLK," said Darmin.

On the same occasion, Minister of Industry of Airlangga Hartarto explained that SVLK of wood industry will be given some kind of incentive especially for small and medium industries.

"SVLK is borne by the government for small and medium businesses SLVK costs are all covered," he said.

Airlangga also asked for a review of the reduction of contributions from the Plantation Fund Management Agency (BPDP) for oil palm companies to encourage exports of cooking oil.

The contribution is the implementation of Presidential Regulation (Perpres) No. 61 of 2015 on the Collection and Use of Oil Palm Plantation Funds. Details on the reduction of BPDP contributions will be discussed in the next meeting.

"It will be discussed again because the cooking oil is downstream production, which is subject to BPDP's contribution to the first process of CPO, downstream process is cooking oil and other derivative products," he said. (Ant)
