Cooperation between Australia and China in the field of forestry has been germinating for some time and recently took another solid turn toward the future when the Institute of Foresters Australia National President Rob de Fegely signed an historic Memorandum of Understanding with the President of the Chinese Society of Forestry Zhao Shucong.

“This MOU builds on the significant interaction between our members and provides an important vehicle for building the relationship as our economic ties grow,” said Mr de Fegely.

“China is now our major forest products trading partner and so it makes sense for us to trade ideas and skills as well as products.” Full details of this historic process are in the soon-to-be-published edition of Australian Forests & Timber News.
