KKP: Udang masih jadi primadona permintaan global

Minggu, 25 Oktober 2020 20:09 WIB

Pandemi ini bisa menjadi potensi kita untuk memenuhi permintaan global
Jakarta (ANTARA) - Dirjen Perikanan Budidaya Kementerian Kelautan dan Perikanan (KKP) Slamet Soebjakto menyatakan komoditas udang sampai sekarang masih menjadi primadona permintaan global untuk sektor kelautan dan perikanan.

"Meski pandemi COVID-19 masih berlangsung, namun udang masih menjadi primadona dengan permintaan global yang masih sangat tinggi hingga saat ini," kata Slamet Soebjakto dalam siaran pers yang diterima di Jakarta, Minggu.

Menurut dia, udang merupakan komoditas yang memberikan pangsa dominan terhadap devisa ekspor yakni sekitar 40 persen terhadap nilai total ekspor produk perikanan nasional.

Ia berpendapat bahwa petambak udang di tengah pandemi COVID-19 ini masih tetap bersemangat dan produktif melakukan proses produksinya, seperti dalam bisnis budidaya udang di Pantura Jawa.

"Pandemi ini bisa menjadi potensi kita untuk memenuhi permintaan global, karena saat ini kita ketahui bersama sejumlah negara pesaing penghasil udang vaname terbesar dunia seperti India tengah lockdown," ujarnya.

Di samping itu, Menteri Kelautan dan Perikanan Edhy Prabowo juga menyampaikan semangat UU Cipta Kerja (Omnibus Law) di sektor perikanan budidaya antara lain membuka peluang masuknya investasi di bidang akuakultur.

"Pelaku usaha maupun investor untuk tidak lagi merasa ragu terjun dalam bisnis budidaya udang. Saat ini Pemerintah tengah memfasilitasi penyederhanaan berbagai jenis izin yang tidak diperlukan dan dinilai menghambat investasi masuk di usaha ini," tegas Edhy.

Sebelumnya, Menteri Kelautan dan Perikanan Edhy Prabowo menyatakan, semangat Omnibus Law atau UU Cipta Kerja yang bertujuan untuk memudahkan investasi masuk, sebenarnya sudah berjalan di Kementerian Kelautan dan Perikanan.

"Semangat omnibus law sudah berjalan di Kementerian Kelautan dan Perikanan (KKP). Ini dibuktikan dengan lahirnya Sistem Informasi Izin Layanan Cepat (Silat) untuk perizinan kapal tangkap ukuran di atas 30 GT yang berlaku secara online pada akhir 2019," kata Menteri Edhy.

Ia memaparkan, sistem Silat memangkas waktu pengurusan dari yang tadinya 14 hari menjadi satu jam.

Hingga 7 Oktober 2020, berdasarkan data dari KKP, Pendapatan Negara Bukan Pajak (PNBP) dari ribuan izin yang dikeluarkan Silat nilainya mencapai lebih dari Rp470 miliar.

Kemudahan perizinan kini juga berlaku di sektor perikanan budidaya, di mana sekarang prosesnya satu pintu di Badan Koordinasi Penanaman Modal (BKPM), sementara KKP bertindak sebagai pengawas bersama dengan pemerintah daerah.

"Tadinya butuh 21 izin untuk bisa memulai usaha budidaya di Indonesia," ucapnya.

China's Delong Holdings targets 20 mln T of steel output in Indonesia
Min Zhang and Tom Daly

Oct 26 (Reuters) - Chinese steelmaker Delong Holdings said it has signed a letter of intent to lift the annual capacity of its steel project in Indonesia to 20 million tonnes - more than three times the volume the Southeast Asian country produced last year.
Mineral-rich Indonesia has attracted billions of dollars of investment from top metals consumer China as it looks to position itself as a hub for steel and battery materials production.
Delong, through its Indonesian joint venture (JV) Dexin Steel Indonesia, started investing in its steel project on the island of Sulawesi in 2018 and saw the mill reach designed output in June this year. Its JV partners are Shanghai Decent Investment Group and Indonesia Morowali Industrial Park.

Dexin Steel said on Sunday it had now launched a first-phase expansion of the project, raising annual capacity to 6 million tonnes, which is slated to be put into production by the end of 2021.


"With the help from Indonesian government and related policies, Delong ... will gradually expand the project's annual capacity to 20 million tonnes," it said in a statement.


Delong Holdings and Dexin Steel agreed with Indonesia's Coordinating Minister for Maritime and Investment Affairs, Luhut Pandjaitan, in China's Yunnan province in early October to further expand the project, according to the statement, which did not put a value on the extra investment.


Pandjaitan's spokesman said earlier this month that Chinese firms operating in Indonesia, including Delong Holdings, "made a commitment" to increase their collective investment in the country to around $20.9 billion by 2024.


Indonesia churned out 6.4 million tonnes of crude steel in 2019, according to the World Steel Association, making it the 26th biggest producer globally. (Reporting by Min Zhang and Tom Daly; Editing by Mark Potter)

Don't know, but it seems our engineer and technician is mostly adept at building and designing or reverse engineering commercial articles or items. Even something as complex as Railway systems and locomotive, or cargo ships or aircraft.

Golden opportunity: Antam eyes Papua mine amid dwindling reserves

State-owned miner PT Aneka Tambang (Antam) has set its sights on acquiring the lucrative Wabu Block gold mine in Papua to replenish the company’s dwindling gold reserves. Antam is already drafting a work plan for the gold-rich block in Intan Jaya regency, as the miner waits for its parent company, state-owned mining holding MIND ID, to hand over the block, according to the company. MIND ID’s president director had previously confirmed the handover plan on Sept 29.

The holding company estimates the block to contain 8.6 million ounces of gold resources. “This will, of course, be a new hope for Antam,” Antam corporate secretary Kunto Hendrapawoko told The Jakarta Post on Friday Antam’s takeover of the Wabu Block is expected to further consolidate the company’s gold business, which contributes over 60 percent of its annual revenue, thereby making gold Antam’s best-selling product. The miner also produces nickel, bauxite, silver and coal.

Biggest sugarcane mills in Indonesia is inaugurated by Jokowi. The location is in North Sulawesi. It will get supply from 21.000 hectare sugarcane plantation around the mill.

The new sugarcane mill is needed to decrease imported sugarcane, thus can improve the trade balance that in the end hopefully can help strengthen Rupiah. Indonesia currency, Rupiah, so far has been quite fragile and has lost much of its value after being traded freely since 1997 when Indonesia get negative impact from Asian Financial Crisis.
