DANA Myanmar Conference and Field Trip

Myanmar
17th November 2014

DANA 1- day timberland and wood products investment conference in Yangon, Myanmar Monday 17 November, with a two day field trip on 18 & 19 November to visit forestry sites, mills, harvesting, and sawn timber export operations. Myanmar is super-rapidly emerging from many decades of political and commercial obscurity. Strategically located between the super powers of China and India, it is ideally located to produce food or wood fibre for domestic use or to export to its neighbours. There are now regular announcements about foreign direct investment expansion, including into wood products. By November, the impact of the April 2014 ban on log exports from Myanmar (the home of, and the largest exporter globally, of teak) will have been identified. Several foreign owners have recently been given licences to build wood processing facilities in Myanmar; and we expect major areas of land suitable for tree plantation projects to open up shortly for commercial plantation investment.
