Opening Speech at the PEFC 2013 Stakeholder Dialogue by Emmanuel Ze Meka, Executive Director, ITTO

"There is a kind of vicious circle facing many tropical countries attempting to implement sustainable forest management: they are squeezed on one side by unscrupulous operators who undercut them in undiscriminating markets by selling unsustainable or illegally produced timber, and from the other side by markets that increasingly demand expensive new regulatory mechanisms to ensure legality and/or sustainability."
