Vietnam maintained the total export volume of ASEAN super-large forest products in the first half of the year
Nguyen Guozhi, Director-General of Forestry, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development of Vietnam, said that Vietnam remained the largest export volume of forest products in ASEAN in the first half of 2019.
Vietnam’s traditional export markets for wood products and timber are the United States, Japan, the European Union, China and South Korea. Vietnam’s position in the international market of wood products and timber is increasing.
Up to now, Vietnam has maintained the status of ASEAN as the largest exporter of forest products, the second largest exporter in Asia and the fifth largest exporter in the world. Vietnam’s wood products and timber have been exported to various countries and regions in the world, and are returning to Vietnam’s market. The development of Vietnam’s wood products and timber has made great progress, injecting momentum into the development of production, and promoting organizations and individuals to increase their investment in forestry production.
In order to ensure the stable supply of raw materials processed in Vietnam, the exploitable area of plantations in Vietnam increased year-on-year in the first half of the year. The output and quality of raw materials in Vietnam have been continuously improved to meet the requirements of wood processing and export.
