Advancing industry

HIMKI is the result of a merger of two furniture and craft industry organizations, AMKRI and Asmindo. This fusion was realized by the strong desire of the President of the Republic of Indonesia, Joko Widodo, to unite the two associations to become a single, strong, large forum and can become a critical government partner to encourage the competitiveness of furniture and handicraft products in domestic and foreign markets.

The formation of HIMKI was declared on May 31, 2016 in Jakarta, which was inaugurated on July 28, 2016 at the Ministry of Industry Building, Jakarta and approved by the President of the Republic of Indonesia, Joko Widodo at the State Palace in Jakarta on the same date.

HIMKI was founded on the basis of a common vision, mission and goals among its members to jointly advance the national furniture and craft industry. This organization is expected to be an aspirational and accommodating institution with a spirit of equality among its members.

HIMKI as an association of business actors in the furniture and handicraft industry sector, in the broadest sense, realizes its responsibility to foster and develop harmonious cooperation, encourage equal opportunity for business and participate in implementing national development in the economic sector.

HIMKI continues to develop and strengthen the national furniture and handicraft industry, which includes ensuring the continuity of supply of raw and supporting materials, product design and innovation, increasing production capacity, developing human resources, promotion and marketing, as well as institutional development so that it can make a real contribution to the industry. national furniture and handicrafts.

For HIMKI, the national furniture and handicraft industry is a very important industry considering that this industry is a strong economic bearing during current economic conditions and is the country's way out in absorbing labor. Because until now the furniture and handicraft industry still exists and produces

foreign exchange for the country when other industries were affected by the crisis, because this industry is supported by a large enough local content.

HIMKI Keep optimistic

HIMKI is optimistic that this industry will continue to experience growth. With the potential for natural resources and human resources that can be managed properly, Indonesia can become a leader in the furniture and craft industry in the ASEAN Regional Region. With the availability of abundant raw material for forest products, skilled human resources in large numbers, this industry should be a formidable industry.

However, there are still counterproductive policies that make the Indonesian furniture and craft industry less developed. Among these policies is that there is still a timber legality and verification system (SVLK) that is enforced by the government. This makes the price of raw materials for the timber industry uncompetitive compared to our competitors such as Malaysia and Vietnam because processing the SVLK and some of the supporting permits requires enormous costs.

HIMKI is concerned about the existence of parties wanting to open the export of logs and rattan raw materials for various reasons. They wanted the export of logs and rattan raw materials because they considered it more practical and profitable to export raw materials instead of exporting finished goods in the form of furniture and handicrafts.

Referring to the national furniture and craft industry development matrix regarding the security of raw materials as the main supporting guarantee for industrial growth, which was initiated by HIMKI, the plan to open the export of logs and rattan raw materials must be prevented because these raw materials will eventually be exported completely. as happened several years ago with rattan raw materials. Export of raw materials is in sharp contrast to the downstream program that has been launched by the government.
