(Business in Cameroon) - Between January and July 2019, Cameroonian and Chinese exports of plywood to the USA decreased by 62%. This is revealed by the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO) in its latest sectoral report.

Due to these decreases, the USA’s plywood imports dropped by 17% during that period despite an increase in these imports in July.

The drop in Cameroonian plywood exports to the USA can be due to the limitation placed by Cameroon on the volumes of wood logging trucks can carry. According to authorities, this limitation is to protect roads but wood exporters claim it is disrupting the supply of processing units.
