News is circulating suggesting the government will adopt new policies to promote the timber industry given the poor export performance of the sector.

Timber exports in the first half of the year were down 15% to US$ 71.2 million compared to US$83.6 million in the same period in 2010.

The National Director of Industries in the Ministry of Production, Ernesto Lopez, said the timber industry has an enormous potential for growth and investment could generate job opportunities in rural and remote areas of the country.

Forest development supports social inclusion
For progress to be achieved in the forestry sector there must be social inclusiveness and attention to the environmental integrity of the natural forest as well as incentives for the private sector to invest, according to the president of the Association of Exporters (ADEX).

This, says the association, requires the coordinated action of the government and private enterprises to add value to the permanent production forests and reverse the decline in output and exports of wood products.

In 2010 timber exports totalled US$ 171.8 million, 11% higher than in 2009 but 22% lower than the figure for 2008. The president of ADEX projected that, for 2011, export shipments would be close to 20% more than last year but still well below the level in 2008.
