- In 2013, imports of Russian sawn softwood to China grew by 16% compared to the previous year. It is reported by the agency Lesprom, citing data from the International
Tropical Timber Organizations (ITTO).
In total, China imported about 24 million cubic meters of sawn timber last year. 70% of them are sawn softwood. Their main suppliers were Russia (6,43 million cubic meters) and Canada (6,79 million cubic meters). Experts predict that in 2014, for the first time, Russian imports of sawn softwood will exceed Canadian, and Russia will become the largest supplier of such wood to China. At the same time, Canada will remain the leading supplier of sawn softwood.
