This symposium is for people who are knowledgeable about forestry but not necessarily about the details of international trade. The first two speakers will cover trade rather broadly to provide a background of the structure and promise of international trade in forest products today and in the near future. The program also includes speakers who will cover current critical topics, forest certification, and the investor’s view. There will be time at the end of the program for questions.
Jean-Christophe Claudon, International Timber Trade Organization
Kathleen McGinley, USDA Forest Service
Gabriel Thoumi, Planet Tracker
