The China export market is growing! According to Wood Resources Quarterly: “China imported 18 percent of its lumber from North America in 2010, up from only four percent in 2005.” The report forecasts that Chinese imports will now grow an average of at least 10 percent per year until 2015.
Because the China export market is one of the vibrant spots in the industry, you won’t want to miss the OLC‘s China Export Markets seminar held Friday, Feb. 24, and led by Tom Leeds of Pacific Lumber & Shipping.
