Expanding Role for the South in World Trade
Abstract:International trade in forest products has traditionally received little attention in the South. There are indications that this is changing as demand in wood-deficit countries increases. In 1974 the South exported $858 million in forest products. The South has an opportunity to become one of the world's major suppliers of wood fiber and, in the process, to strengthen its base for more intensive management of its own forest resources.
