Transformation and upgrade needed to meet challenges
Indonesia’s garment industry has several challenges that it needs to address, including the rising labor cost, and the increasing competition from other countries such as Vietnam and Cambodia. To secure sustainable business development in the world market over the long term, Indonesia should improve its export-oriented textile and readymade garments (RMG) sectors and offer more competitive pricings. While boosting added value to products is one of the best countermeasures, it’s also highly imperative for Indonesia’s garment industry to upgrade its machinery and equipment to effectively meet market challenges.
