World Forestry: Forestry Development in Papua New Guinea
Abstract:Forests cover nearly 90 million acres or about 80 percent of the land surface of Papua New Guinea. Although other major countries of the region, such as Indonesia and Malaysia, have more forest area. Papua New Guinea's small population and domestic market have caused the government to encourage exports. Primarily because of slack international markets, the results to date have been disappointing, and the government is modifying its policy.
