This figure grew 7.6 percent compared to 2017 with 89.7 million passengers.

Meanwhile, Semarang General Ahmad Yani Airport recorded the highest passenger growth among other Angkasa Pura I airports with an increase of 16.4 percent, from 4.42 million passengers in 2017 to 5.12 million passengers in 2018.
“The relatively high growth at Jenderal Ahmad Yani Airport cannot be separated from the operation of the airport’s new terminal which is faster than the target. “The acceleration of the development and development of airports managed by Angkasa Pura I to support the optimization of company performance, improving service quality, and overcoming the problems of ‘lack of capacity’ are still our focus in 2019,” said Faik Fahmi, Managing Director of Angkasa Pura Airports Friday (01/04/2019).

JAKARTA – Entering 2019 Customs continues to create various innovations and strategies in order to respond to the rapid development of industry that has entered the industrial stage 4.0. Strategic steps are taken by perfecting business processes in all lines and innovation and modernization following the development of the global economy in the digital era.
Related to that, the Directorate General of Customs (DJBC) implements the third generation manifest to facilitate service users while reducing logistics costs. This is one of the Customs steps to be able to increase the ease of business in Indonesia and the smooth flow of goods.
“The third generation Manifest is the latest version that prioritizes the principles of automation and simplification in line with the Customs and Excise Reform program agenda in order to build smart customs and excise systems to create business processes that are easy, inexpensive, fast, transparent, effective and efficient,” said the Director General of Customs and Excise Heru Pambudi in Jakarta, Monday (1/7/2019).
Some of the principles promoted in Manifest Generation III include the Advance Manifest System 24 hours before arrival for sea transport facilities so that customs clearance can be done faster and the addition of NVOCCs and postal operators so that manifest submissions can be faster by each – each document issuer.
Customs also applies the risk management principle of manifest changes where changes can be made online and not all changes must be approved by the Head of Office, inclusion of Taxpayer Identification Number (NPWP), and automation of closing manifest posts.
The application of Manifest Generation III has been carried out in stages starting on December 28, 2017 at the Customs Office in Jakarta. As of August 2018, this system has been implemented in stages in 12 major Customs Offices throughout Indonesia covering 6 ports and 7 major airports which statistically represent more than 80% of the national import and export volume.
“On September 26, 2018, the Manifest Generation III system was implemented in all international ports and airports supervised by 104 Customs Offices throughout Indonesia,” Heru said.
The implementation of Manifest Generation III has had a positive impact and created various facilities. Among the decreases in dwelling time, especially pre-clearance, based on data at Tanjung Priok port, there was a decrease in pre-clearance of 0.81 days or 19.69% after the mandatory Manifest Generation III system. Other benefits that were also felt were the acceleration of the clearance process in Airport. Manifest Generasi III has eliminated the manifest postal detailing process which has reached 11,500 processes per month. This results in the clearance process being reduced by 2 to 8 hours or by 20% to 80% from the previous, as well as reducing costs, and administrative expenses.
Not only that, the implementation of Manifest Generation III has also reduced the redress manifest process. At the beginning of the implementation of the self-correction redress manifest system on the Manifest Generation III system, the redress process was reduced by 22.75% from the average of 550 requests per month.
Positive responses were also expressed by several associations and companies including INSA, ALFI, ASPERINDO, PT Pertamina (Persero), and IATA. The positive response, including manifest submission, can be sent directly to the customs system online so that it is more efficient and effective, data correction can be done online without having to come to the Customs Office, and speed up the delivery of Goods Import Notification.
Heru added that Manifest Generasi III which has been fully implemented in all Customs Supervision and Service Offices is a real commitment in implementing reforms and answering the demands of the times.
“This change is certainly aimed at creating a more effective, easy, fast, cheap and transparent trading system. Customs also expects cooperation from relevant Ministries or Institutions, as well as service users to be able to immediately implement this program to make it easier trying in Indonesia is getting better, “he concluded.
In accordance with Bali Governor Regulation No. 99 of 2018, Bali supermarkets, hotels and restaurants must now promote and prioritize local produce, sourced from farms and fisheries on the island.

In accordance with Bali Governor Regulation No. 99 of 2018, Bali supermarkets, hotels and restaurants must now promote and prioritize local produce, sourced from farms and fisheries on the island. The policy was inaugurated on Monday, and stipulates that 60 percent of the agricultural products bought, sold and marketed by retailers and hoteliers must come from local suppliers, as reported by Bali Post.
At the inauguration of the new regulation in Pengotan, Bangli, on Monday, Governor Wayan Koster spoke about his vision to boost Bali’s farming, fishing and handicraft industries by synergizing them with the already booming tourism sector.
“There is a big imbalance [in economic growth]. Bali relies on the tourism sector. If tourism is disrupted, all life is disrupted. Therefore, it is necessary to balance the structures of tourism and agriculture,” said Koster, as quoted by Nusa Bali.
According to a report in Kumparan, the new regulation stipulates that the island’s hotels, restaurants and catering companies (HOREKA), as well as supermarkets, must now ensure that 60 percent of the total volume of agricultural products bought, sold and marketed within their premises must be sourced from local producers. In addition, 30 percent of fish and handicraft products are also required to be obtained from Bali enterprises.
A further condition calls for retailers to buy the aforementioned produce at a price of at least 20 percent above the farmers’ production costs, thus supporting the interests of local industries.
“I appeal to entrepreneurs and other economic players who carry out their business activities in Bali to position and portray themselves accompanied by a responsibility to ‘build Bali’ instead of ‘building in Bali,’ said Koster at Monday’s inauguration.
In response to the decree, the island’s hoteliers have expressed their hope that local growers will be able to keep up with the demand and quality requirements, regardless of the season.”What we need is good quality because [our products] are also consumed by international tourists,” said Ray Suryawijaya, the Head of Badung Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI), as quoted in Kumparan.
Moving forward, Bali Provincial Government plan to award those parties that consistently cooperate with the new regulation, as well as imposing sanctions for violations. A dedicated team has already been formed to monitor the implementation.
JAKARTA – Chairman of the Association of Express Delivery Service, Post and Logistics Indonesia (Asperindo) Mohamad Feriadi asked operators regulated agents to review the matter of tariff determination. “At least we want to be cost-reasonable, do not have a profit element because it is managing a private element may be reviewed, or indeed if deleted...
JAKARTA – Chairman of the Association of Express Delivery Service, Post and Logistics Indonesia (Asperindo) Mohamad Feriadi asked operators regulated agents to review the matter of tariff determination.
“At least we want to be cost-reasonable, do not have a profit element because it is managing a private element may be reviewed, or indeed if deleted will be very good,” he said on Monday (2/7/2018).
In addition, he said RA should be managed by the government. “This should be the responsibility of the government (public service) and should not be delegated to private companies whose orientation is definitely profit making business,” he said.
He sees the RA tariff that Rp500-1000 per kilogram will affect the shipping costs are fully borne by consumers.
“Any additional cost is not borne by the care services, but returns to the consumer in our selling price,” he said.
On the other hand, the high tariff RA set will make the competitiveness of national products depressed. In fact, national products must be able to compete to penetrate the international market.
“Our competitiveness is decreasing because of the RA tariff, even though this is actually talking service, how to make the goods in Indonesia is marketed to abroad, not only in the country,” he said.
“But because of the cost of this RA tariff makes the additional cost so that our competitiveness becomes down because of this,”
Nevertheless, he continues to encourage the operators of the privately run RA to lower tariffs in order to not only emphasize the advantages.
He hopes that the struggle that is being fought to suppress the cost of RA will be sweet to all parties. “Because this will be good for all, whether it’s customer or shipping service, will also make competitiveness increase,” he said.
