Invisible exports – timber logs to Jamaica unrecorded by the Guyana Forestry Commission

Dear Editor,
Jamaican Customs opened a shipping container in mid-March and discovered 122kg of cocaine in bags with a consignment of 130 logs. The Guyana Forestry Commission admitted knowledge of this shipment,
apparently associated with a State Forest Permission assigned to Aroaima Forest Producers Association but actually operated by a Chinese national.

Sluggish Timber Sales Continue in March

Finland, April 7, 2011 - The forest industry purchased one million cubic metres of timber from private forests in March, almost a third more than in February. Birch pulpwood must be imported, because the supply in Finland is insufficient.
Demand for timber is good and there’s particular interest in stands, which can be harvested in summer.

The aggregate January-March purchase volume, 2.8 million cubic metres, was down more than a fifth from the corresponding period of 2010.
