Brazil’s wood processing and forestry sectors as represented by the IBA are calling on the government for urgent action to stimulate and increase exports in the face of a continuing weak domestic market.
The call is not just in aid of exporters but incorporates manufactures. The association would like the government to work with the private sector to achieve growth in both areas. While suppliers of pulp, paper and wood-based panels are continuing to look for new and supply existing export markets it is felt that the government could, indeed should, reduce interest rates, make credit easier to obtain in order to help both markets.This may also kick start domestic demand.
