Emmanuel ZeMeka, Executive Director of the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO, a CPF member) noted that “for many countries forests provide a major source of foreign exchange and domestic revenue for economic development” and highlighted the need to establish markets for “a wider range of the goods and services provided by forests.” He made his remarks ahead of the ITTO’s Annual Market Discussions in La Antigua, Guatemala, which focus on the benefits of trade in wood products to the international community.
