Malaysian forestry-related enterprises in the spotlight

AN INTERNATIONAL Symposium On Forestry & Forest Products will be held in Malaysia from 5-7 October.
The symposium will feature local and foreign forestry-related experts and researchers, who will discuss and share latest research and development findings that can help to address the often competing and challenging needs of both the forestry sector and forest products industry.
The symposium, carrying the theme “Addressing Global Concerns and Changing Societal Needs”, is organised in collaboration with the Forestry Department of Peninsular Malaysia (FDPM), the Malaysian Timber Industry Board (MTIB) and the Malaysian Timber Council (MTC).
According to event organizers, the forestry and forest products sector in Malaysia needs to be sensitive and respond quickly to the changing global concerns and societal needs, not only for the sustainability of natural resources and environment protection but also to strengthen international competitiveness of the country’s forest-related industry.
