Indonesia imposes tariffs on some textile imports until 2022


Indonesia has imposed tariffs on imports of some textile products until November 2022, according to a Ministry of Finance regulation, in a bid to protect local producers from a surge of imports of yarn, fabric and curtains.

“Safeguard duties” of up to IDR11,426 (US$0.78) per metre have been imposed for fabrics in three stages, and the tariff will be gradually lowered by 8 November 2022.

Indonesia will also start imposing tariffs on imports of curtains and yarn during the same period.
