Between 2017-2021, IMM distributed annual market overviews and summaries of the previous year’s survey results in the form of IMM Annual Reports. To allow for a timelier distribution of this information, IMM decided to switch to shorter, more frequent reports in 2022. These reports will cover the latest market trends combined with either survey
results or updated analysis against specific IMM indicators. IMM will publish three short reports in 2022 and a final report in early 2023, when the IMM project will complete its activities.
This first modular report includes a trade update for the full year 2021, with a specific focus on trade between the EU and Indonesia and Indonesia’s efforts to rebrand SVLK a Forest Legality and Sustainability Assurance System, as well as results from the 2021 IMM EU trade survey. Future reports will focus on providing details of preliminary trade trends in
2022 and other emerging issues.
