For the first 5 months of 2011 Malaysia’s exports of wooden furniture and other wood products amounted to Euro 201.65, a decline of around 6% compared to the same period in 2010.
The US continues to be an important market for Malaysian wood products, importing wooden furniture and timber products worth Euro 50.46 million in the first 5 months of 2011. This, however, represented a decline of 24% compared to the same period last year.
Other major export destinations for Malaysian wood products are Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, UAE and the UK.

German government develops initiative to address illegal harvesting
The German government is working to address the global problem of trade in illegally harvested timber. As part of this initiative German authorities are working with tropical timber exporting countries in an effort to find solutions to this problem.
The German government has reportedly enacted a new law which, in English, translates approximately to ‘Timber Trade Safeguard Law’. This is just one step taken by the German government to combat trade in illegal harvested timber globally. Reports indicate that this legislation will come into force in 2013.

Peninsular Malaysia may opt to sign the VPA before Sarawak and Sabah
Malaysia is currently negotiating a Voluntary Partnership Agreement (VPA) with the EU. Analysts are speculating that the VPA with Malaysia may eventually be covering three separate regions. Peninsular Malaysia may opt to sign the VPA before Sarawak and Sabah. These two states in East Malaysia may then separately sign VPA’s with the EU at a later date.
