Vietnam is increasingly recognised as the country to be for wood processing. The country’s wood and wood products exports hit a record high of US$9.3 billion in 2018, and the industry is one of the largest export industries for the country. The potential of the industry has government introducing the Decision No: 1288/QD-TTg, approving a project on sustainable forest management and forest certification by establishing the national forest certification system, so as to ensure sustainable growth and conservation.
The country’s phenomenal growth in the last decade has made it a serious contender to overtake China as the world’s manufacturing powerhouse.
Binh Duong is the centre of the wood industry in Vietnam. It has a plentiful labour force, a dynamic team of businessmen, connected to key timber areas in the Southeast and the Central Highlands of Vietnam. It has favourable business and investment environment. The wood industry also had the highest surplus export value in the Bing Duong province. In early 2019, the province’s wood exports was 10 per cent higher than the same period in 2018.
