State Forest Resources Agency of Ukraine
Dear organizers, participants and visitors,
On behalf of the State Forest Resources Agency of Ukraine, I wish to congratulate you all on the opening of LISDEREVMASH International Forum for Forestry, Woodworking and Furniture Industries.
One job in forestry generates over ten jobs in other industries, i.e. woodworking, furniture, construction, railway, pharmaceutical, food processing, and green tourism. This is a partial list of areas of the job chain starting in forests. Therefore, development of domestic wood processing industry and creation of conditions for efficient use of available forest raw materials are of the utmost importance for our state today.
We should join our efforts to develop coherent and equitable cooperation. I’m sure that cooperative work will open up significant opportunities and ensure striking a balance between public and business interests.
Together, we will be able to ensure fulfillment of such important tasks as increasing Ukraine’s forest area, preserving biodiversity and ecological environment, implementing EU forest management practices and attracting investments.
