Canada Pitches Lumber to India Market
With the prospect of U.S. Government duties being levied on Canadian lumber, Mike de Jong, British Columbia‘s minister of finance, is looking to sell softwood lumber to customers in India and China, reports Canada Business.
De Jong said, “We are amplifying our efforts to do something we did around (the last) softwood negotiations and that is diversify our markets. We have redoubled our efforts in India and are beginning to see results. We are in China now to further encourage efforts at reducing our dependence on a U.S. market that may become somewhat unpredictable.”
