Booming Asian markets have come on strong over the last year, saving many coastal Canadian and American mills. If you’ve wondered how your forest products business might tap into these lucrative markets with your own wood exports, but have no idea where to start (or even if your products are in demand), then we have a webinar you do not want to miss.
Learn from the best track record in the industry
Paul Owen, President of Vanport International, and one of the leading authorities on exporting forest products to Asia, gives you his exclusive insight into these niche markets and how your company can play a role. Savvy forest products companies currently trading their products overseas (the kind Paul helps every day) are not only surviving, but thriving in the economic downturn. You may be able to join them, and Paul’s webinar could be the kickstart you need to bring greater diversity to your income streams and help ensure your company’s long-term success.
Paul shows you:
- The Asian countries you should focus on right now
- The fiber and species currently in demand by countries hungry for American forest products
- Size, types and grades of lumber in demand, by country
- Cultural landmines to avoid
- Logistics information you must have to ensure your exporting success
- How to start exploring business opportunities in Asia
- And more!
