At the Supply Edge: Thailand’s Forest Policies, Plantation Sector, and Commodity Export Links with China

This study on Thailand’s forestry sector was commissioned by CIFOR and Forest Trends as part of a wider effort to address an information gap regarding Asia’s forestry and plantation forestry industries as well as regarding the emerging trade linkages between East and Southeast Asia. This report on Thailand’s forest sector is one of three studies undertaken by the author, which links forest resource production trends in Southeast Asian countries to China’s rapidly expanding market for forest products, in particular woodchips and pulp and paper.
