The paper industry in Cikarang achieved exports of 68 million dollars

The paper industry in Indonesia was able to achieve an export value of 68 million US dollars in the first semester of this year. However, the paper industry currently still uses around 50 percent of domestic paper raw materials, and 50 percent of imported paper raw materials. 

Acting Director General of Agro Industry at the Ministry of Industry, Putu Juli Ardika, said that raw materials are indeed very important for industry.

We also know that industry wants raw materials to come from within the country, because they are easier to use and cheaper. If you import, there are insurance costs and all that. "We will try in the future how the paper industry can get more raw materials from within the country," said Putu. (www.pacsper.com)
