Message from Lead Consultant - January 2018
The IMM programme will host a series of Trade Consultations on the EU FLEGT VPA initiative and FLEGT licensing this year. The first event takes place at the London Building Centre on March 8 and is organised in cooperation with the Global Timber Forum (GTF).
The Trade Consultations will be a chance for timber businesses, and other industry stakeholders, such as specifiers and retailers, to hear the latest findings of the IMM’s trade flow monitoring and survey work. They are also opportunities for delegates to discuss key issues and share their opinions with the Government of Indonesia and the European Commission.
Besides presentations and breakout discussion sessions, the UK event also includes a private tour of an exhibition at the Building Centre showcasing the products, stories and process involved in the EU FLEGT Action Plan in Indonesia. Organised by the TTF, with the Indonesian Ministry of Environment and Forestry, this show runs from February 5 to March 31.
