Furniture producers in Indonesia are represented by ASMINDO, the Indonesian Furniture Industry and Handicraft Association. ASMINDO has been lobbying vigorously for the interests of rattan furniture manufacturers on the national level by opposing Government policy of allowing quota for rattan raw material exports, which are benefiting raw material producers, collectors and traders, but are perceived as a threat by the furniture manufacturers, as the Indonesian raw material is given to competitors in China, Vietnam and other countries.
