Myanmar ends raw wood export

Reading Time: 1 minute

myanmar.loggingThe Forest Department of Myanmar has recently announced a deadline for raw log exports through Yangon ports. The deadline is midnight on March 31, 2014, according to the department. It will allow timber to be loaded onto ships docked at Yangon ports just until that time.

As of April 1, 2014, the government will only allow the export of value-added finished wood products, completely stopping raw log exports on that date.

“According to the deadline, trucks coming late to the ports will not be allowed to load,” said an official from the Myanmar Port Authority.

Asia-based companies are in discussions to build factories in Myanmar to produce value-added finished wood products instead. The Ministry of Forestry and Environment Conservation also said that investments are coming soon from the US and Europe to build wood product factories in the country.
