Majority 70% of material consumption for shipbuilding industry in Indonesia is still import.
Indonesian marine and fisheries industry has growth rapidly over the last five years. In addition to its tendency innovative food needs of the middle class, Indonesia is the largest archipelago with more than 17 thousand islands that helped boost the industry. Characters islands and water which rich in marine products become a great asset for the government to encourage fishing industry become one of the economic strengths.
This potential can be seen from the area of maritime Indonesia that reached 5.8 million km2, equivalent to 0.3 million km2 of water, 2.8 million km2 in the water and islands, and 2.7 million km2 Special Economic Zone. Products of aquaculture also showed huge potency. In 2014, aquaculture production is around 14 million tons, while fish from wild catch reached about 6 million tons. It’s a combination of domestic demand and potential export market as a significant opportunity in the fishing industry in Indonesia.
> Investment in cold storage, special logistics and processing the production of the catch, including downstream processing
> New industry with low productivity.
> Indonesia is an importer of food for fish or pellets in bulk. Developing aquaculture will open up investment opportunities to support fisheries production.
> Domestic demand for fishery products will likely continue to increase as per capita consumption is still relatively low.
> The government’s commitment to increase investment in infrastructure projects such as new ports, new roads and railways to support the fishing industry and logistics.
> Since 2008, the government has encouraged integrated fishing, allowing foreign investors to build a fish processing plant or to build partnerships with local companies operating in the processing industry.
> The government has formed 12 Unit Technical Services throughout the islands that provide support for the fishing industry, including: engineering innovative cultivation technology, handling of fish breeding farms, as well as technical assistance in good environmental management.
> Establishment of “minapolitan” (economic zone) which consists of the production and trade center for marine and fishery products, as well as housing complexes for fishermen. The concept of “minapolitan” was based approach to fisheries development areas that upholds the principles of integration, efficiency, quality and accelerated industrialization of fisheries.
