Jakarta-As preparations for the ASEAN Economic Community in 2015, Vice Minister of Commerce visited the factory wiring Krisnamurthi PT Supreme Cable Manufacturing Commerce (Sucaco) Tbk. Wires and electronic equipment is one sector which is set by default in the free trade in the region.

Factory covering an area of 14 haktare was already 41 years old and is one of the oldest cable factory in Indonesia.
According to Bayu, PT Sucaco been exporting its products to Japan and other countries in the Middle East are taking a higher standard of ASEAN. However, exports are now stalled because the domestic market absorbed all of its products.
As the economy grows, the need for cables and equipment in the country is growing. This additional requirement apparently was overtaken by the domestic industry in which the culprit was more than 100 companies.
As a result, Indonesia’s trade balance was a deficit of electronic products. Last year for example, the Central Bureau of Statistics noted that the export cable and electronic products only reach U.S. $ 7 billion, while imports reached U.S. $ 15 billion.
Jamallulail Noval, Chairman of Cable Manufacturers Association (Apkabel) states, the main obstacle in the cable industry is the issue of raw materials. Although Indonesia is producing copper and aluminum, but in fact the cable industry still has to import both these metals. “Because here there is no industry median, so it should be processed beyond the first,” he said.
Another problem, the import of raw materials seengah so it turned out to be between 10-15 per cent import duty. “It’s somewhat reduces our competitiveness for export markets,” said Noval.

Herutama explains, inhibiting the production of a number of things in the first half, both technical and non-technical. Non-technical issues, faced with the difficulty of drilling performance licensing and bureaucracy in the field. “Especially in land acquisition and licensing of protected forest,” he said.
Technical problems caused by drilling late due to operational problems. He cited the loss circulation problems and subsurface (subsurface) which makes the production does not match expectations.
“It turns out there is the subsurface fairly tight. Thus, for example, the production of which was estimated at 100, because the tight layer, the realization was only 50.”
Target production increase by 11 thousand barrels also can be realized only 4,200 barrels per day from January to June. In fact, in 2012, the addition of the targeted production of 14,200 barrels per day, could be realized 13,500 barrels per day. “More good because it has not appeared non-technical issues,” he said.
