    The Ministry of Trade (Kemendag) continues to review a number of regulations related to the smooth flow of goods at the port. Especially the flow of export goods, so that the business world more excited.

    “Do not let the process of ‘flow of document’ or ‘flow of goods’ actually burden the business,” said Director General of Foreign Trade Ministry of Trade Oke Nurwan as quoted from Antara in Surabaya on Thursday (7/9).

    According to him, the Ministry of Trade is currently reviewing 35 import-related regulations and 18 export-related regulations to support the smooth flow of goods.

    Thus, there will be deregulation so that the flow of goods will be more smoothly, the time for goods to settle in the port or dwelling time can be suppressed, and the competitiveness of Indonesian products will increase.

    According to Oke, there are currently about 11,000 classified trading products or Harmonized System (HS). Of that total, 5,280 HS is included in commodities subject to “lartas”, ie goods that are prohibited and / or restricted to imports or exports.

    Of the 5,280 HSs, 3,466 HS are related to the Ministry of Trade. “We are reviewing. We expect to live about 1,000 HS, while the rest is done by the mechanism of supervision in the ‘post border’, “he said, as reported by merdeka.com.

    Although the Ministry of Trade continues to strive for logistics costs to be suppressed, Oke also asks businesses to utilize the trading schemes that have been built to support the reduction of logistics costs.

    For example, there are still less than 40 percent of business actors utilizing cooperation with a number of countries through the use of certificates of origin (SKA) in order not to incur export costs.

    “The ministry will facilitate the cutting of bureaucratic and licensing chains so that logistics costs can be reduced and competitiveness can be improved,” he said.
