KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia’s exports of timber and timber products can reach RM23 billion this year, following the arrival of Covid-19 vaccines, primary industries minister Mohd Khairuddin Aman Razali said today.
He said the ministry, through the Malaysia Timber Industry Board and Malaysian Timber Council, would strive to ensure the local wood-based industry will remain competitive in both the domestic and global markets.
“The ministry is confident the export performance is able to achieve RM23 billion in 2021 especially with the availability of vaccines which are expected to ease the Covid-19 transmission.
“The economic recovery in major timber importing countries such as the United States and China as well as increasing demand from other countries would drive the wood industry to remain positive throughout 2021,” he said in a statement today.
