DANA 2 day New Zealand forest industry sector conference with field trip. This event follows on immediately after the related Melbourne Australia event, and will have presentations on the state of the New Zealand tree plantation industry and New Zealand’s place in the global demand for institutional forest investment and why, its trading environment (and new interest from Chinese investors), and the direction of world's largest softwood sawlog export industry (and growing), the state of the somewhat troubled sawmilling industry and initiatives to improve it, Australia as an existing and future sawn timber market for New Zealand, the state of the wood panel industry and potential for expansion, pulp and paper sectors, wood pellet potential and more.
High profile international speakers will attend. Regional economic development agencies will be given an opportunity to present cases as to why wood processors should consider investment in their region; and National and Labour forestry spokespeople will be invited to give their take on the sector, and how they intend managing it post- the 2014 NZ General Election.
The program and speakers will be listed on the web site shortly.
