Although he lost Rp. 11 trillion in the first semester, the boss of Pertaminina is sure to make a profit in 2020

Big Business – President Director of PT Pertamina (Persero) Nicke Widyawati is optimistic that the company can book profits for the whole of this year, even though the company in the first semester of 2020 lost Rp 11 trillion.

Nicke sees that currently fuel consumption in several regions has begun to increase. In July 2020, turnover increased by 9 percent, and the company had an operating profit of 1.2 billion dollars. Even during this period, the loss was reduced to 4.5 trillion IDR.

“With this positive trend, we are confident that we can improve our performance in the second semester of 2020, and can post profits this year,” Nicke said in a written statement on Friday 28. August 2020.

He hopes that the Covid-19 pandemic can be handled properly so that mobility and economy will be better and can encourage increased fuel consumption.

In the first semester of 2020, Pertamina registered a negative financial performance by registering a loss of IDR 11 trillion. Nicke said there were generally three reasons why the company ended up losing money in the first half of this year.

First, the reduction in fuel consumption due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The decline in consumption has led to revenues from the downstream sector falling by 25 per cent compared with the same period last year.

Meanwhile, the decline in fuel sales in large cities in large-scale social restriction period can reach 40 percent to 50 percent under normal conditions. “Downstream contributes 80 percent of Pertamina’s total revenue. Thus, the decline in sales downstream has a significant impact on the company’s revenue,” said Nicke.

Second, the weakening of the rupee against the US dollar. Nicke said that the loss due to this exchange rate difference reached USD 211 million in the first semester of 2020. This is because 93 percent of the company’s capital expenses and operating expenses use dollars, while 80 percent of turnover is in rupiah.

Third, the decline in world oil prices is due to redundant supply. This factor causes the company’s upstream oil and gas revenues to fall by 20 percent. Meanwhile, exploration and exploitation are relatively constant.

“The upstream sector contributes 80 percent of Pertamina’s total profits, so the decline in profitability from the upstream sector has a major impact on Pertamina’s decline in earnings,” said Nicke.

Tiles and ceramics from India and Vietnam are now taxable

BigBussiness – To support the domestic industry, especially ceramic tiles, the government, through the Ministry of Finance, has made amendments to the Minister of Finance’s regulation number 119 / PMK.010 / 2018 on the imposition of security measures Import Duty (BMTP) on imports of ceramic tiles.

This change is listed in the Minister of Finance Ordinance number 111 / PMK.010 / 2020 on amendments to the Minister of Finance’s regulation number 119 / PMK.010 / 2018 on the imposition of import duties for protective measures (BMTP) on imports of ceramic tiles.

The head of the Fiscal Policy Agency, Febrio Kacaribu, said that the content of PMK number 111 / PMK.010 / 2020 in general is to exclude India and Vietnam from the list of countries that are exempt from the BMTP order on ceramic tiles according to PMK 119 / PMK .010 / 2018

At the time of the entry into force of this amended PMC, India and Vietnam were subject to BMTP on imports of ceramic tiles.

The amount and time period for imposing BMTP on the import of ceramic tiles has not changed from the previous PMK, where BMTP in the first year is imposed by 23 percent, the second year is 21 percent and in the third year is 19 percent with the order period until October 2021 .

Order of BMTP on ceramic tiles from India and Vietnam is based on data on the increase in imports of ceramic tiles from the two countries, after being excluded from order of BMTP in accordance with PMK 119 / PMK.010 / 2018.

“Based on the Ministry of Commerce’s evaluation in December 2019, imports of ceramic tiles from India and Vietnam in the period 2018-2019 jumped by 22.72 percent and 6.58 percent, respectively,” Febrio said.

Based on the import data mentioned above and referring to Article 9.1 WTO Guarantee Agreement, India and Vietnam can be excluded from the list of countries except from the introduction of BMTP.

This is because the share of imports from these countries has exceeded three percent.

In PMK 119 / PMK.010 / 2018, the government has imposed BMTP on ceramic tiles which are quite effective in suppressing imported products, especially ceramic tiles from China, which reduced significantly.
