China's forestry and forest products industries are undergoing important transitions caused by recent efforts to protect national forests and an increased awareness of environmental problems in the country. The impact of the Natural Forest Protection Program's logging ban and China's entry into the World Trade Organization has yet to be fully realized. However, due to the potential size of China's forest products markets, it is appropriate to examine the potential for domestic supply and for forest products exporters to expand their market penetration in China.
