(Business in Cameroon) - Over the first half of this year, the US imported 21% less hardwood veneers globally, year-to-year. According to the International Tropical Timber Organisation (ITTO) which disclosed the figure, the drop was mainly driven by a slump in shipments from Cameroon.

Indeed, in June 2019, the volume of hardwood veneers imported by the US from the central African nation was down 22% compared to the same month a year before. Over H1 2019, these volumes recorded a 65% decrease, y/y.
