Siberia Timber & Wood Products Tour

September 9 – 16, 2012
WOOD MARKETS will be leading another of its industry tours in Siberia to allow forest industry players to have the opportunity to get the real story on Russia’s Siberian forests and mills, including:

  • The impact of a reduced Russian log export tax in August 2012 (after Russia joins the WTO);
  • Impact and issues related to a severely restricted infrastructure (roads, rail, and other logistics) and rising manufacturing costs in the Russian forest industry;
  • Future growth prospects (and reality) in sawmilling, plywood industries and log exports; and
  • Opportunities for networking, business, trade and even investment.
