INDONESIA: Textile Exports Predicted To Rise
Officials from the machines, metals and electronics industries have announced that they predict Indonesian exports of textiles and garments to increase by 8 per cent to US$8.2bn over 2001, following on from the 8.9 per cent rise to US$7.52bn over 2000.
They went on to say that despite their predictions, exporters would still face problems with security, port handling costs and illegal competition from smugglers.
Despite a growth in exports, many textile companies are still weighed down with debt but are looking to restructure their debts through the Indonesian Bank Restructuring Agency.
