  • Over the past 10 years, there has been rapid growth in China’s use of imported wood products.
  • Despite the global recession, the China market is continuing to grow with GDP growth projected to continue at up to 8.5% per annum.
  • China’s new policies, focused on improving energy efficiency and environmental impact of structures, make wood building systems an increasingly attractive option, with benefits such as carbon reduction and seismic stability
