Another successful event, the 7th annual Global Softwood Log & Lumber Conference at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Vancouver hosted 260 delegates from 13 countries focussing on the impact of the countervailing duty rate (CVD) on Canadian lumber exports to the U.S. and the expected impacts of these export duties on global lumber trade and prices. Coupled with these questions were assessments of how or where the U.S. will get all of its lumber requirements, at what price, and how offshore exporters fit in. Similarly, what will Asia look like as Russians and Canadians ramp up export volumes and where will other log and lumber exporters fit in?
