The textile and garment sector offers both challenges and opportunities as the Indonesian government looks to the sector to be a major engine of growth to 2030. The sector employs 1.3 million people as of 2011 making it one of the most important elements of the country’s manufacturing industry. Some 61% of manufactured garments are exported to international markets as various leading international apparel brands use Indonesia as a manufacturing base for their global exports.
