"In the next decade, the demand for wooden products will grow, mainly in the Asia-Pacific countries. Today, for the export of Russian deep-processing timber products, this is a priority. In this regard, the participation of our companies in the SYLVA WOOD Trade Show is another step towards expanding the strategic partnership for Russia," Viktor Evtukhov, State Secretary, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation emphasised.
For the second year in a row, Russian enterprises successfully present their products under the single brand "Russian Timber Industry". The organizers of the group exposition in 2018 were the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation and Russian Export Center JSC.

Like in the past year, 2018 Trade Show proved to be efficient for Russian companies. A number of successful negotiations with foreign partners took place, in particular, an annual contract was signed between the Russian manufacturing company Ustyanskiy Timber Industry Complex LLC (RusTimber™) and the large Chinese company Xiamen BNBM Group for the supply of 10,000 m3 of spruce timber for a total of $ 2,750,000.
