Logging, Legality and Livelihoods in Papua New Guinea: Synthesis of Official Assessments of the Large-Scale Logging Industry VOL. 1By Forest Trends View Publication
Papua New Guinea’s forest industry is predominately focused on the harvesting of natural forest areas for round log exports. There is little plantation production and only a limited number of processing facilities. The sector is dominated by Malaysian-owned interests and their primary markets for raw logs are in China, Japan and Korea. Very few wood products are manufactured in PNG itself.
