Indufor sees strong growth potential in Asia and strengthens its presence in the markets through nominating a Regional Manager for the China and Southeast Asia region.
The continued interest in forestry and bioenergy plantation investments and a shift in global demand for forest industry products mean growing business opportunities for Indufor in the region. The process of forestry and forest industry privatisation has started in most emerging economies. Forestry and forest industry sectors are unique due to their character of renewable natural resource industry; Indufor sees a good fit in combining sustainable values with economic opportunities – Company´s core values.
