The standard of forest management in Indonesia is improving significantly, with the large-scale progress both in mandatory certification of forest management (SVLK) and voluntary certification (FSC). International markets see new opportunities for trade with Indonesia given its progress in certified forest management, giving assurances about the legal and sustainable origin of timber products from natural forest.
TBI - APHI Sustainable Business Event on 10-11 November 2014 at Hotel Majapahit Surabaya brought together 12 international timber companies from the USA, Europe and Asia plus 27 Indonesian industries involved in the production of plywood, veneer, indoor flooring, outdoor decking, truck flooring and garden furniture.
