Forest Products of Paraguay
Abstract:Paraguay, once among the most prosperous of Latin American countries, has substantial wealth in her forests. Properly developed, these forests could supply valuable timber and other products for both domestic use and for export. Improvements needed include the introduction of good forest practice on the land, use of modern machinery in harvesting and processing forest products, and the enlargement of foreign outlets for forest products. Lack of trained technicians seriously handicaps such a program. Government sponsorship will probably be required to start such a development unless the task is turned over to foreign enterprise.
