The forest products industry involves wood-based panel, wood household, forest chemicals, pulp and paper and other fields. It has a long industrial chain and a wide range of products. It can not only provide a large number of wood and products for national construction and people’s life, but also play an important role in increasing farmers’ income, consolidating the achievements of poverty alleviation and effectively connecting with rural revitalization.

In 2021, China’s forest products industry will have frequent highlights and hot spots. What events will deeply affect the development trend of the industry? What events are worth remembering together? After careful discussion and deliberation, experts from China Forest Products Industry Association, Wood Industry Research Institute of Chinese Academy of Forestry Sciences, forest products industry planning and Design Institute and other units finally determined ten major events of China’s forest products industry in 2021. Looking back on the major events in the industry in the past year may help us to understand and think about the forest products industry.
