Khabarovsk Krai invites South Korean investors to forest projects

Forest development projects in the Khabarovsk Territory can attract investments from South Korea, the press service of the regional government said.

Prospects for such cooperation were discussed at the fourth meeting of the Russian-Korean working group on forestry, which was held in Seoul.

As Ivan Denisov, head of the forest administration of the regional government, said at the meeting, regional enterprises show the greatest interest in setting up wood-chemical production, producing modern types of fiber boards, competitive lumber, sets of wooden houses, and pellets. According to him, the participation of South Korean capital in such projects as organizing the production of planed and profiled sawn timber in the village of Berezhovy of the Sunny district, setting up a production facility for producing sawn timber and component materials for wooden housing construction in the Sukpai district of it. Lazo To date, both projects are at the stage of formation of the engineering infrastructure.

In addition, during the meeting South Korea received investment proposals for the construction of a pulp and paper mill and OSB production plant in the region.

“In addition to proposals for the participation of Korean companies in investment projects, the Ministry of Natural Resources of the region proposes to consider the issue of expanding the supply of the region's existing timber products to the Republic of Korea. First of all, these are sawn timber, fuel pellets, board products, veneer and plywood, ”noted Mr. Denisov.

Not less promising direction of joint development of forests of the Khabarovsk Territory may be the harvesting of non-timber forest resources: berries, nuts, mushrooms, ferns. According to Ivan Denisov, the current volume of collection of these products in the region does not exceed 20% of the possible.
