China initiates pilot projects for exporting sawnwood

The Fujian Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau recently reported that Fujian Province had been approved to initiate pilot projects in Putian City and Zhangzhou City. The initiative, which was approved by the State Forestry Administration, the Ministry of Commerce and the General Administration of China Customs, aimed to import logs through Putian and Zhangzhou ports, process logs into sawnwood and then export sawnwood through Fuzhou, Xiamen, Putian, and Zhangzhou ports. This is the third phase of ongoing pilot projects in the region, and follows projects in Manzhouli City and Erlianhot City.
