Support for overseas investment in processing by
domestic enterprises

can provide around 50% of its timber requirements from
domestic sources. The SFA says, provided the volume of
imported timber is no more than 60% of national needs,
then timber security can be guaranteed.

resources the SFA is supporting Chinese companies invest
in processing capacity overseas.
