  • Ghana timber industry declines.

    GHANA, 2012/12/21 Falling volumes of timber in Ghana, coupled with rise in illegal lumbering, has compelled the former net timber exporter to now import to augment demands of the industry. The country's timber volume fell by 20.44% and in price by 13.04% in 2011. Timber's foreign exchange earnings as well fell slightly, as the country realised 7,187,938 euros from export of 21,020 cubic metres of timber in 2011 compared to 8,265.642 euros from 26,421 cubic metres in 2010.
