27 June 2017

In Shanghai the International Exhibition SYLVA WOOD 2017 is taking place from 26 to 28 June - a significant event for global timber processing industry. Russia timber industry complex is represented by the collective exposition 'Russian Timber Industry'.


Recently, export supplies to China of Russian deep processing wood have increased: the volume of plywood supplies almost doubled, and supply of wood laminated plastic boards that had not been previously exported.

Number of major projects are being implemented in the Russian Federation involving Chinese companies: a pulp mill is being built in the Trans-Baikal Territory, projects on sawing are being implemented in the Jewish Autonomous Region, the Irkutsk Region, the Khabarovsk Territory.

Prospects of further growth for forestry enterprises are predetermined by high demand for wooden housing in many countries of the world, as well as the growing demand for papermaking machines.
