(Business in Cameroon) - During the first quarter this year, Cameroon sold a total of 5,946 tons of sawn timber on the US market. According to the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO), this volume is 48% higher than that in the first quarter of 2018 (4,010 tons).

Despite this strong performance, the international body stresses, the US market is still a minor destination for Cameroonian sawn timber. In the same period, the central African country shipped 60,000 tons of such timber to the EU, up 22% year-on-year.
