INDUSTRY.co.id - Banjarmasin - Chairman of the National Shipowners' Association (INSA) National Carrier Association of Indonesia (INSA), Carmelita Hartarto, said that the company is currently struggling to realize the decision on import and export transport to be controlled by national shipping.

According to Carmelita in Banjarmasin at the inauguration of board of DPC INSA Banjarmasin, in Banjarmasin Monday (14/05/2018) currently 90 percent of national import export is controlled by foreign flag ships.

"We are in the process of fighting for the national import-export transport, which can be done by red-and-white vessels, and the gratitude of the struggle has received support from the commerce ministry," he said.

The support, as evidenced by the issuance of the decree of the minister of trade number 82 of 2017, which requires the export of transportation, especially CPO and coal, carried out by red-and-white flagged vessels.

It is hoped that the regulation can be realized soon, so in the future, all coal and CPO export transports are already red and white.

Carmelita said, all national companies, must now unite and support each other, to improve national shipping capabilities, so as to encourage the growth of the national economy faster.

Regional shipping companies, especially South Kalimantan, play a major role in encouraging the glory of national shipping, given the export potential also comes from South Kalimantan.

"Without local support, I think efforts to strengthen the role of national shipping will be difficult to achieve," he told media crews.

He hopes, INSA Banjarmasin, able to provide all its energies, to support the progress of regional and national voyages.

"Strengthen coordination with all stakeholders in the region as well as stakeholders at the national level, for the advancement of regional voyages," he said.

South Kalimantan Governor Sahbirin Noor said the role of INSA is very large against the rate of development of South Kalimantan, especially for freight transport.

According to the Governor, cooperation with all parties, including with INSA is very important to continue to be done, to accelerate regional economic development.

"We will continue to support large and small entrepreneurs, to invest in South Kalimantan, including shipping businessmen," he said.
