Export For Small Factories in Indonesia
Many small to medium businesses or factories are not familiar with import-export activities. Usually, they focus only on domestic trade. Nevertheless, many of them are interested in exporting their goods abroad.
In general, this is supported by the Indonesian government. Moreover, the form of government support is reflected in the establishment of various facilities to facilitate the sale of products. Such as trade exhibitions, KITE, export financing, etc.
Challenges on Exporting Goods for New Exporter
Usually, there are several obstacles when factories want to start exporting, including:
1. Language Barrier
The first and most important issue is the language difference. In Indonesia, English is a foreign language. Therefore, many factories are not familiar with English.
2. Lack of Understanding of Regulations
The second issue is the lack of understanding of regulations. Most factories focus on production and sales to distributors/suppliers. Rarely do they follow export-import government regulations.
3. No Connection With The EXIM parties
In fact, there are many parties involved in import-export activities. Such as shipping, freight, customs, etc. Even though, these parties are very important for the continuity of the trade process between countries.
