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.
