Imported goods circulating in Indonesia are dominated by China.
Based on the report of Statistic Central Agency (BPS) in
January-April 2016, the imported goods of non-oil from China
reached 9.65%, or 25.76% of total imports.
"A quarter of imported products into Indonesia are
originally from China," said Deputy Distribution and Services
Statistics BPS, Sasmito Hadiwibowo, in a press conference in his
office, Jakarta, Monday (16/05/2016).
"We import a lot from China, and China's role of
imports can be above 25% is enormous," he explained.
Meanwhile, exports from Indonesia to China is very low. Besides
China, the second largest share of imports into Indonesia is Japan
with US $ 4.10 billion. Then it is followed by Thailand with US $
3.05 billion or 8.15% of total imports.
"The imported goods from China are quite varied. Ranging
from electronic goods, machinery, food, plastics, chemicals,
vehicles, and others. The imports from Japan and Thailand are the
vehicles and machines," he said.

Indonesia, we are hoping the producers of those countries will also
