We [Woodmarkets] continue to believe that further production or trade developments could emerge with little warning in both China and Russia — changes that could have profound and sometimes immediate effects on supply dynamics/export markets, in turn boomeranging back into domestic/other export markets. That’s one reason we decided, in late 2015, to relaunch our Siberia Forest & Industry & Northern China Tour (September 11–19, 2016) and tie it into our China Supply Chain & Logistics Conference and Industry Tours (September 20–23), as you really need to see and feel the industry pulse for yourself. Added Russell Taylor, “we could just say we “saw some of these new dynamics coming,” but it really springs from our regular travels throughout global markets, where we visit with major exporters and producers (most exporters speak only to buyers).” This broad international network enables us to see new trends much earlier than most, and it is our current view that many in the industry do not understand the industry scale and low costs in both China and Russia and how this will impact global trade. We suggest that those with an export business need to look closer at these new, visible trends; those who do may just find themselves with a strategic advantage.
